The George Main Stakes is one of Sydney’s premier weight-for-age mile races held at Royal Randwick. 

The George Main Stakes winner is exempt from ballot for the Epsom Handicap and Verry Elleegant is the clear favourite to win Saturday's Spring Carnival feature.

George Main Stakes 2021 Tips

Best Bet - Verry Elleegant

Aiming for her ninth Group One victory on Saturday is this star mare from the Chris Waller yard, who is following the same pattern last spring in going from the Winx Stakes to the George Main Stakes second-up.

Verry Elleegant is also coming off a similar run, being three-wide the trip in both of her last two Winx Stakes attempts, although instead of gripping on to win this year, she was touched off late by Mo'unga who finished second to Incentivise last Saturday.

That Makybe Diva Stakes form does read a lot stronger than the other references in this field and despite failing in the George Main Stakes last year, going from good ground to soft ground this time around is much more suitable.

Value Bet - Hungry Heart

Another Waller runner going straight from the Winx Stakes to the George Main Stakes is this daughter of Frankel, a runner who was costly for punters as an early three-year-old before making amends in the autumn.

It was a definite pass mark for her first-up, balancing up well late in the piece and to the eye at least, it was a better performance than Kolding's (third fav here) and she was only just over a length off Think It Over (second fav).

On a good surface, she's more of a $7-$8 chance in this feature following a nice tick-over trial, although her last attempt on a Soft 7 was only a two-length defeat over 1200m in a leader dominated race, with the mile being a big tick now.

It's hard to go past Verry Elleegant, especially now getting back on to her preferred soft ground.

Hungry Heart was okay fresh, the tick-over trial was sound and she should have more improvement than Kolding and Think It Over from that Winx Stakes.
