La Lune 9/2 narrow FAV for Aphrodite Fillies’ Stakes odds

The 9/2 current favourite is LA LUNE* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 23:40 GMT on Friday, July 17th 2020). She won a novice effort in May last year.

On her reappearance after a year away, she scored a very good second at Pontefract.

That was about a month ago and in a Listed race as well and looked strong and fluent.

La Lune only finished half a length back of the winner in that one and there is further progress expected.

So putting all that together then she brings some big claims to the table here in Aphrodite Fillies’ Stakes odds.

La Lune

William Hill

Virgin Snow a close challenger?

There should be a solid challenge coming into play from VIRGIN SNOW.

She is very well bred and looks to have found some good form as well now. So she is a threat here from 4/1 odds* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 23:40 GMT on Friday, July 17th 2020).

She scored on her renewal in early June at Haydock and then she followed that up with a good effort at Newcastle later in the month.

Virgin Snow took a second place finish there in the Hoppings Fillies’ Stakes (Group 3).

Vivid Diamond can shine at Newbury

VIVID DIAMOND will be looking to improve on a fourth place claimed on her recent appearance. At her best she looks good enough for a top three finish without question.

The 4 year old filly should be sharper for that recent run, when she was 4th in a field of 4.

Last Autumn Vivid Diamond scored big in the Chester Stakes (Listed) and followed that up with third place finishes at both the Cumberland Lodge Stakes and Park Hill Stakes.

One to keep on side after her recent run. Vivid Diamond is a 6/1 contender* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 23:40 GMT on Friday, July 17th 2020).

Shailene books Moore for Fillies’ Stakes run

Course and distance winner SHAILENE may pique some interest from 7/1* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 23:40 GMT on Friday, July 17th 2020). She won a couple of times last season.

Stepping out for her return she ran well in a Haydock Group 3 contest. She went straight to Royal Ascot after that for the Copper Horse Handicap.

She was outclassed there as she was third from last. Her form from last Autumn was good enough to overlook her Ascot effort. Shailene has Ryan Moore booked for the ride.

Makawee improving

MAKAWEE has improved on each of her last two runs. On her re-appearance she claimed a fifth place finish at Newcastle at the start of June.

She then stepped forward to collect a third place finish from a field of 12 at Pontefract. In early June she went better again to get a second place finish at the Lancashire Oaks (Group 2).

If she can follow up that effort where she was five and a half lengths back of Manuela De Vega, then she may have claims in this one at 9/1* (betting odds taken from William Hill at 23:40 GMT on Friday, July 17th 2020).

Others to note

HYANNA scored a win on her reappearance effort just under three weeks ago. That was a success at Windsor which was only in a field of three. She’s a game runner, but may struggle in this company.

TRIBAL CRAFT is coming up in class and she does warrant a little respect. She came back into action with a second place finish at Newmarket and then scored at Kempton two weeks later.

CABALETTA came up a little short on her last effort which was in a Haydock Group 2 contest. She was fourth there, but she didn’t quite live up to her form she had shown in her debut win and a second place in a Listed race at Haydock.

Predictions & Tips for Aphrodite Fillies’ Stakes Odds

This is a good contest and there should be a tight duel between LA LUNE and VIRGIN SNOW.

They both have some big claims and it’s difficult to split them. But just because La Lune ran so well on her last effort which was at this level, we have to just side with her.

SHAILENE may be worth some respect to get into the places.
