Will I Love It justify favouritism and win the 2016 Bow Mistress Stakes or will one of her many talented rivals find the line in the clear?

1st

I Love It ($1.95)

Winner of last year’s edition of the Bow Mistress Stakes, I Love It will leave from the ideal barrier 4 on Friday with Steve Baster in the saddle and will be very hard to beat. Progressing to second in the Group 3 Wenona Girl Quality (1200m) and third in the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) following last year’s triumph, the Artie Schiller mare returned to racing in similarly good form through spring; placing fourth in the Listed Alinghi Stakes (1100m) and sixth in the Group 3 Mumm Stakes (1100m) most notably.

2nd

Nautical ($9)

Six-year-old Nautical will also contest the 2016 Bow Mistress Stakes first-up, could very well receive the run of the race from barrier 5 and represents terrific value for money at current $9 odds for success or $2.55 to finish in the first three. Posting three wins and twelve minors through 28 career starts so far, the Niello mare returned in spring for second in Listed Rosemont Stud Stakes (1200m); progressing to ninth in the Mumm Stakes and returning to the paddock after placing a credible sixth amongst notable company in the Your Car Handicap (1200m) on November 28th.

3rd

Our Harmony ($6)

Our Harmony has returned to racing in typically slick form this time but has been charged with overcoming the somewhat wide and awkward barrier 11 in the Bow Mistress Stakes. Finishing outside the first three only a handful of times through thirteen career starts so far, the Nadeem mare placed third in the Red Tempo BM90 (1000m) first-up on New Year’s Day before progressing to second in the Cube Finance BM90 (1200m) on January 23rd.
