A standout performer over the 2014 Spring Carnival, talented three-year-old First Seal has opened as and maintained status as outright favourite in 2015 Light Fingers Stakes betting markets; currently available at a quote of $3 for success with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Running fourth in a minor over 1250m during the 2014 autumn before immediately returning to the paddock, First Seal returned to racing in spring for an impressive debut win in the Daily Press Group Plate (1100m) before running second to Sweynesse in a Rosehill minor over 1400m.

Making a successful transition to black type racing when charging home to win the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) on September 20th, the Fastnet Rock filly broke through for a maiden win at the highest level with an impressive performance in the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) on October 4th before a credible second in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) last time out.

Allocated the rails draw, First Seal has been confirmed to be partnered by leading jockey Blake Shinn and is more than worth consideration for a 2015 Light Fingers Stakes bet at current odds.

Cutting in from opening odds of $4.20 to current feature as outright $4 second favourite to win the 2015 Light Fingers Stakes, Mossfun is a proven autumn performer and arguably offers punters the best value for money.

Debuting with an impressive win in the $250,000 Inglis Nursery Open (1000m) in late 2013, the daughter of Mossman comfortably won the Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) on February 15th before repeating the dose in the Group 2 Silver Slipper (1100m) on March 1st.

Suffering her first competitive defeat when finishing second to Earthquake in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) on March 22nd, Mossfun responded in the best possible when taking out the major Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) on April 5th.

Unlucky to miss the Spring Carnival with a series of minor ailments, Team Hawkes have been thrilled with the continually building condition of Mossfun and are confident of first-up success.

Winx secured several impressive results of her own over the 2014 Spring Carnival, and while yet to experience much more than a sprinkling of bets for success in 2015 Light Fingers Stakes markets, remains outright favourite at a quote of $6.

Yet to finish outside the top three through her five race career, Winx secured arguably a career-best victory to date in the Group 2 Furious Stakes (1200m) upon resuming in spring; progressing to close second place finishes in the Tea Rose Stakes and Flight Stakes.

Likely to receive the run of the race from barrier 3, Winx has been confirmed to be partnered by in-form hoop Jason Collett and arguably offers punters the best value as a selection in a 2015 Light Fingers Stakes quinella or trifecta bet.
