2011 Let’s Elope Stakes Form Guide

September 1st, 2011

The 2011 Let’s Elope Stakes form guide isn’t going to be easiest one you ever do with 16 quality mares meeting each other at a stage of the season where you can never be too sure just how well they’re going.

Sure there are a couple of horses travelling super with great recent form, but that form has been registered in fields not featuring a lot of the horses that’ll be in action on Saturday.

It’s not going to be impossible to find a winner though and we’ve picked out the best group of horses we think will be filling the places come race day.

These are in no particular order, just the horses we feel you should have a closer look at and maybe not spend so much time on some of the others.

We’ll be back tomorrow with our 2011 Let’s Elope Stakes tips, so check these out for yourself and see how well you match up!

2011 Let’s Elope Stakes Form Guide

Brazilian Pulse

On recent form (including the end to last prep) you simply couldn’t have her in your top 10 let alone your top three. But, she is a Group 1 winner and on her day she wins this race. It’s a tough ask to work out just when that win will be but maybe in the Let’s Elope Stakes. She didn’t have much luck in her first up flop, she’ll settle better from barrier six on Saturday, too much class to ignore.

Do Ra Mi

In all honesty you could pretty much just repeat what was said about Brazilian Pulse. This horse has the ability, the question is does she still have the desire? We’ll soon find out.

Pinker Pinker

It’s almost a case of ditto again although Pinker Pinker was at least a bit closer in her first up race. That being said she was entitled to be even closer after enjoying an absolute gun run and really didn’t offer a lot in the straight. She’s a player though and Glen Boss will be pushing all the right buttons to give her every chance from barrier five.


This is a big go, this horse started up with a tough second place finish and with the fitness she’ll take out of that run there’s every chance she’ll win this race. Mid Summer Music was the one who beat her but now the fitness advantage might swing around in her favour, second run of her prep versus sixth run of her prep could be all it takes to go one better here.

Mid Summer Music

That being said, you can’t exactly write this horse off. She’s only dropped one race in her last five and even that was a close second. Sure the company she faces is probably a bit better but who’s to say she can’t be better as well. If you do an exotic and she’s not in it you’re probably wasting your money, she’ll be in the picture at the end. Big job for Ben Melham though, needs to work plenty of magic form the outside gate.


Put two together back to back last prep and has had two runs so far this season. First up she looked the goods when second but a last start seventh wasn’t quite as impressive. Don’t dismiss her too early though, if Lisa Cropp finds her a handy spot back in the field and a run presents itself late she’ll be running into it.

Biancon Rose

Effectively another Mid Summer Music but potentially without quite as much hype. She’s the same quote at Luxbet though and you can see why based on her record this campaign. Five runs for four wins and a place, sound familiar? The big advantage for her is gate three, she can take her pick of where to sit giving Craig Williams an easy time of it. Another must have inclusion if you’re looking at a few individual runners, let alone in trifectas and first fours.
