Vain Attraction lands the big $16 tip from @Villagebet on Twitter.

What a weekend it was for Villagebet punters. At Caulfield today, our followers enjoyed a $16 winner when new addition to Darren Weir stable Vain Attraction saluted in the Citiopera Plate (1100m). The six-year-old Bel Esprit mare burst through in the closing stages to defeat Chiquada ($31) by a head with Miss Steele ($9.50) edging out Griante in a photo for third.

“She only has a 200m sprint so you have to hold her up for as long as possible and Michelle (Payne) rode her perfectly.

“It has taken a bit of time but it is nice to get her to the winners’ stall again,” he said of the mare who now has won five races for prizemoney of more than $313,000.

It’s certainly nice to provide a $16 winner for our community of horseracing punters.

The $16 winner today followed yesterday’s basket of winners, including Matron ($13) who won the EJ And Nellie Turner Plate (1800m) at Sandown Park.

Trainer John Moloney paid tribute to Guy Walter following the victory of Matron.

“I owe this win to Guy Walter, if it wasn’t for him I don’t think she’d have got this far,” Moloney said.

“She’s got a bit of funny knee but Guy looked after her and made her and I’m the lucky one to have her.”

Matron ($13) showed plenty of fight to hold out Luck’s A Fortune ($51) and score by a neck with Don Doremo ($3.40 fav.) a half-neck off in third.

Matron had won her previous start at Geelong and Moloney praised her versatility and bravery.

“The last time she came from behind and today she’s been up the front and toughed it out,” Moloney said.

“She’s got a lot of guts and it takes you a long way on a tram.”

Matron is a five-year-old daughter of O’Reilly. She has won three of her eight starts and earned $49,535.
