2021 Surround Stakes Best Bets
Can Victorian raider La Mexicana serve it up to the best fillies that Sydney has to offer in the 2021 Surround Stakes? Let’s take a look at each and every runner and find out…
1 – Montefilia – $12 👀🏆💰
Very classy filly who just peaked on her run in the VRC Derby but was outstanding in both the Flight Stakes and the Spring Champion Stakes where she knocked off a fair portion of this field. Will be better over longer and may need a run, but is super classy and is worth throwing in exotics and could still just win.

2 – Away Game – $9.50
Hasn’t been the same this preparation, her competition looks to have caught up with her now in their three-year-old season. Would have to find a few lengths to be in this.
3 – Dame Giselle – $5.00 👀🏆💰
I thought she did enough first up over the 1200m, the step up to the seven furlongs is okay and she will improve with more fitness. She’s taken care of a lot of this field before and will be right in the finish once again.

4 – Every Rose – $19
Had a dream run in the Light Fingers Stakes, and she’d have to have another birthday like that to win this one.
5 – Hungry Heart – $11
Never really delivered on her promise last preparation, with Dame Giselle and Montefilia taking care of her in every run last preparation in Sydney. If you’re a fan of hers, you are getting double figure prices here, but she will be better over the mile and at this stage is a non-winner.
6 – Forbidden Love – $14 💰
Was caught in a bit of traffic and had a less than ideal run in the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas on the Gold Coast, has been freshened and should be able to run a hole if things break her way and she improves from that run.
7 – Never Talk – $9.00
Keen to be against the Light Fingers Stakes form, so happy to leave her out of the numbers.
8 – Vangelic – $20
Lost a plate in running and was first up off a long spell, wouldn’t be surprised to see an improved performance, though the price is about right.
9 – La Mexicana – $6.50 👀🏆💰
Has been in outstanding form in Melbourne and brings a different form line to all of these as she chases riches in Sydney. Loses Jamie Kah but gains Aussie Tom, is in this up to her eyeballs and must go in everything.

10 – Thermosphere – $17
Hasn’t been suited both starts this prep but would need everything to go right, not sure she has the class of some of these.
11 – Elizabeel – $26
Another out of the Lightfingers we will be against.
12 – Joviality – $41
Admittedly is a massive price, but doesn’t look up to this at the moment.
13 – Philizzy – $101
Price tells the tale. No.
14 – Love Sensation – $51
Would need to start running now to have a chance.
15 – Miravalle – $31
Probably needs a few runs to be hitting her straps over further distance.
16 – Eight Diamonds – $91 💰
Good maiden win but flopped out of the gates at the Kenso last outing. Worse $91 shots around and it doesn’t take much to make her a winning result for you.
17e – Pippali – $201
👀 = Must Watch
🏆 = Big Winning Chance
💰 = Worth Including in Exotics
