I Love It is a proven performer in the race and remains an outright $2.60 favourite in 2017 Bow Mistress Stakes betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au, ahead of Ocean Embers ($2.70) and Lyuba ($3.40).

Will I Love It justify favouritism and win the 2017 Bow Mistress Stakes, or will one of her classy rivals post an upset?

1st

Ocean Embers ($2.70)

Ocean Embers is arguably the class horse of the Bow Mistress Trophy field and should prove tough to beat in the feature race. A standout for Shea Eden in spring, the Beneteau mare won the Sheen Group Plate (1100m) first-up in July before running a close second in the Listed Lightning Stakes (1050m). Returning to winning form in the MRC Foundation Handicap (1100m), Ocean Embers secured a career-best win in the date in the Group 3 Ladbrokes Cockram Stakes (1200m) before finishing fourth in the Group 2 Schillaci Stakes (1100m). Ocean Embers will leave from barrier 6 and should have no issue performing to a high standard at level weights.

2nd

I Love It ($2.60)

I Love It is another horse whose class should count for plenty in the 2017 Bow Mistress Stakes. I Love It placed second in the Bow Mistress Trophy in 2016 and progressed to a smart win in the Group 3 Vamos Stakes (1400m) and a particularly impressive third in the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) during the Adelaide Autumn Carnival. Unable to make much of her two-start spring campaign, the Artie Schiller mare is set to fly first-up and will leave from the ideal barrier 2.

3rd

Trot On Candy ($9.50)

Leading local Trot On Candy has so-far received the greatest market share of bets for success in Bow Mistress Stakes markets; firming from a $17 quote to currently rest at $9.50 odds. Steadily building to the task upon resuming this time, the Trotamondo mare will be seeking a third-consecutive win this afternoon after taking out each of the Wolfblass BM82 (1100m) and Lady Lynette Plate (1100m) most recently. Trot On Candy could very well receive the run of the Bow Mistress Stakes from barrier 3 and with regular hoop Troy Baker in the saddle.
