More than half of the field is offering single figure odds in the betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au, led by firm favourite Peace Force at $3.50.

The Gerald Ryan-trained mare will jump from barrier three with Brenton Avdulla to ride. Peace Force has placed in eleven of her 15 career starts including three consecutive last wins, yet this will be the five-year-olds first black-type race.

Commanding Wit ($5), Mary Lou ($5.50), She’s Clean ($6), Myamira and Mamwaazel (both $6.50) round out the single figure odds.

The Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Commanding Wit will jump from barrier seven with champion hoop Kerrin McEvoy to ride while the Anthony Cummings-trained Mary Lou will enjoy the inside jump from barrier one with Jason Collett as jockey.

Top weighter She’s Clean is one of two horses saddled by trainer Chris Waller in the 2015 Belle Of The Turf Stakes along with Mamwaazel. With five kilograms separating the two and both drawn well in barriers four and six respectively, this race is anyone’s to win.

Defending Belle Of The Turf Stakes champion Myamira will need to kick it into gear to maintain her crown following a lucklaster preparation. The six-year-old mare finished end of the field in both the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) and Group 2 Momentum Energy Stakes (2000m) during the spring but showed her potential when a fast finishing fourth last time out.
