Shoe to Fit First-Up in Quezette Stakes 2011

Successful horseman Clarry Conners is confident his promising filly Satin Shoes can resume in style at Caulfield on Saturday and give race favourite Mosheen a run for their money in the $100,000 Listed Quezette Stakes (1100m).

Satin Shoes

Satin Shoes resumes in the Quezette Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday

Part of last season’s top crop of two-year-olds, Flying Spur filly Satin Shoes won her opening three career starts including the Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill in February, where she defeated subsequent Golden Slipper placegetter Elite Falls.

Next start, however, Satin Shoes had her first slip when the John O’Shea-trained Elite Falls turned the tables to beat Conners’ star into second in the Group 3 Reisling Stakes (1200m).

Despite her early promised and form, when stepped up to elite company for her major aim Satin Shoes could only manage to cross five and a half lengths away ninth behind champion colt Sepoy in the Golden Slipper.

That disappointment in early April was Satin Shoes’ latest run, but she resumes along with many of the other now three-year-olds that were in the Slipper at Caulfield on Saturday.

Golden Slipper winner Sepoy starts odds-on in the $100,000 Vain Stakes (1100m), while Satin Shoes will face off against Slipper runner-up Mosheen in the Quezette Stakes.

The now Robert Smerdon-trained Mosheen, drawn ideally in barrier one of the 13 for Saturday, is the pronounced $3.30 favourite in the latest Caulfield Race 4 odds at Luxbet.

While the boom surrounding Mosheen’s return is huge and the attitude of their connections is bullish, Satin Shoes is not without her admirers.

Drawn nicely in gate three with Michael Rodd engaged for the ride, Satin Shoes occupies the second line of Quezette Stakes betting paying $4.80 to overcome the crack field of fellow three-year-old fillies and win the race as the 58.5kg top-weight.

Conners made the decision last month to skip the Sydney Spring Carnival with Satin Shoes and focus solely on the feature showdowns in Victoria this prep starting with the Quezette Stakes where she makes her interstate debut.

“She had a jump-out at Geelong for Michael Rodd and went nicely and I’m pleased at where she is at for her first-up race,” Conners said.

“She’s been down there nearly two weeks at Geelong.

“She’s handing that way (anti-clockwise) perfectly.

“It’s not an easy race.

“I thought I’d send her down for a nice easy kill but it’s not going to be very easy at all.”

Other notable hopefuls in the market for the Quezette Stakes win on the weekend include Peter Snowden’s Redoute’s Choice filly Glissade ($5), the Peter Moody-trained Metonymy ($8.50) and Song Of The Bell ($9).
