Lady Lynette, trained by Robert Smerdon is topping the odds at $4.60 with Ladbrokes.com.au.

The Ladoni mare embarked on the spring with a solid first up third in the Group Three Cockram Stakes (1200m) and will look to improve on that.

It is surprising to see the Cockram Stakes winner Rhythm In Paris at longer odds of $6.50 with Ladbrokes.com.au. The Bianconi mare has drawn perfectly with barrier one, and could be the perfect bet for punters.

Response finished second-best to Rhythm In Paris in the Cockram Stakes, which looked strong in what was her first-up jump. The Charge Forward mare is at $5 for the win with Ladbrokes.com.au.

Melbourne Cup favourite Dariana is set to begin her spring racing campaign this Saturday with a jump in the 2010 Let’s Elope Stakes. The Redoute’s Choice mare is at $9 for the win with Ladbrokes.com.au, so will pay well if she returns in style.

Other notable runners in the 2010 Let’s Elope Stakes are the David Hayes-trained Irish Lights and the John Thompson-trained No Evidence Needed, at $10 and $13 with Ladbrokes.com.au respectively.

The feature race for Saturday will be the Group Two Makybe Diva Stakes (1600m) which is boasting a line-up dominated by Melbourne Cup hopefuls.

Also taking to the track will be the Group Two Danehill Stakes (1200m) and the Group Three Bobbie Lewis Quality (1400m) along with five other super races.
