Nominations have been released for the 2012 Wenona Girl Handicap which will take place as part of Randwick Guineas Day at the Royal Randwick race course this Saturday.
Included in nominations for the $100,000 Listed event (1200m) is the Peter Moody trained Curtana who has recorded five wins from 16 career starts.
The four-year-old is coming off a seventh-placed effort in the Oakleigh Plate in what was the mare’s first hit out following a spell.
Five-year-old Dystopia will head in to Saturday’s race in blistering form, having won her last two starts.
She backed up a win in the Schweppes Handicap at Warwick Farm in January with a first-place finish in the Listed Triscay Stakes at Rosehill on February 25.
Skyerush is another in the nominations list with a decent record, having scored seven wins from 29 career outings and the six-year-old will be looking to produce a good first up result following a spell.
The Guy Walter trained mare last ran in November where she finished a respectable third in the Group 2 Matriarch Stakes.
Alberton Park brings an international flavour to the Wenona Girl Handicap and the New Zealand horse is coming off a second-place finish to Dystopia in the Triscay Stakes.
The John O’Shea trained horse has six wins from 31 starts and has collected over $300,000 in prize money.
Four-year-old Gybe is a daughter of Fastnet Rock and she will be having her first run back following a spell. She has a decent resume which includes five wins from 15 trips to the track.
