The first Group 1 race to light up the Randwick track at today’s Super Saturday meeting is Race 5 at 2:10pm, the $400,000 Group 1 Coolmore Flight Stakes (1600m).
The 2010 Coolmore Flight Stakes is set to be contested by 11 of season’s best three-year-old fillies following yesterday’s scratching of #10 Brazilian Pulse.
The hot favourite to win the Flight Stakes is unsurprisingly #1 More Strawberries, currently at a quote of $2.70 through Sportsbet.
The Gai Waterhouse-trained More Strawberries has enjoyed a sensational season so far blitzing her rivals in both the Furious Stakes and Tea Rose Stakes.
Drawn ideally in barrier one and due to be ridden by top hoop Nash Rawiller, More Strawberries is the filly to beat today and is the Races.com.au pick.
