Floria has claimed only four wins, but 11 places from her 31 races starts to date and has arguably reached peak condition since an impressive 2013 autumn campaign.

Returning to racing in great condition in 2014, talented four-year-old You’re So Good is currently offered on the second line of Sunline Stakes betting at a quote of $4.40.

Securing two wins and five places in 14 race starts so far, You’re So Good produced a competitive run to finish second behind Angels Beach in the Mrs Mac’s Beef Pie Sprint (1100m) and was unlucky to again finish one runner in the red in the Listed Matrice Stakes (1200m) most recently.

Allocated the ideal barrier 2 for the Sunline Stakes, punters snapped up opening odds of more than $7 offered for a You’re So Good victory, instilling the mare as clear market mover at her current quote.

Featuring as the only other runner offered at odds of less-than $10, Text’n Hurley will have to overcome the wide barrier 13 if to continue her good run of form in the Sunline Stakes.

Finishing outside the paces on only two occasions in 11 starts to date, Text’n Hurley has returned to the track in near-career best form this preparation, following up an unlucky run for sixth in the Allan Wicks Maiden (1200m) first-up with a strong win in the Lot 1 at Inglis Easter Maiden (2040m) and strong second in the Group 3 Schweppervescence Trophy (1600m) most recently.

The Hard Spun mare has receive a shower of wagers in Sunline Stakes betting markets, but is yet to move from opening odds of $6.50.

Having secured three back-to-back victories since late January, four-year-old Precious Gem currently offers punters incredible value for 2014 Sunline Stakes success at a quote of $21, particularly having drawn the ideal barrier 5.

While yet to contest a race a Group level, the talented daughter of Econsul has proven herself as a legitimate contender over 12 race starts and well and truly worth a wager for a place, for which she can be taken at generous $5.80 odds.
