Seven fillies have been confirmed in the final field for Saturday’s 2016 Millie Fox Stakes (1300m) at Rosehill Gardens; offering punters exceptional value from a betting standpoint and several key opportunities to place a winning wager.
Catkins has not been seen at the races since failing to fire and ninth in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) on Derby Day, but remains clear $2.10 favourite in Millie Fox Stakes betting markets with Ladbrokes.com.au.

Ending her autumn campaign second to Amanpour in the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m), the Dubawi mare resumed in spring for success in the Group 3 Triscay Stakes (1200m) but failed to figure in either of the Group 2 Golden Pendant (1400m) or Myer Classic.
First Seal was unlucky to miss the entire Spring Carnival through injury but is drawn ideally in barrier 3 and represents terrific value for money at 2016 Millie Fox Stakes odds of $3 for success.
A Group 1 winner having taken out the 2014 edition of the Flight Stakes (1600m), First Seal resumed in 2015 for second in the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) before taking out the Group 2 Surround Stakes (1400m) a fortnight later.
Running second in each of the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) and Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m), the Fastnet Rock mare has not been seen since placing sixth in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes.
Blake Shinn will take the ride on the four-year-old, who has been charged with overcoming a race-high 58kgs.
Interestingly figuring as the only other runner currently available at 2016 Millie Fox Stakes odds of less-than $10, I’ve Got The Looks has steadily built to the task this time and is worth consideration at a quote of $6.50 for success.
Securing eight wins and seven minors through 24 competitive starts so far, I’ve Got The Looks resumed this time for a credible third in the Listed Canterbury Classic (1200m) at Randwick on Boxing Day.
Progressing to a luckless fifth when blocked for a run in the Listed Takeover Target Stakes (1200m) on January 8th, the Choisir mare ran third in the Breeders Classic a fortnight ago.
