The 2012 Gimcrack Stakes will take place at Perth’s Ascot Racecourse this Saturday and plenty of promising young fillies were today named in a 13-horse field for the Listed $80,000 race.
Among those is Miss Solis who remains unbeaten from three starts and is coming off an impressive one length victory in the Listed Supremacy Stakes on March 3.
Miss Solis is trained by Simon Miller and she is not the only unbeaten runner the Perth trainer has in the race.
Darlington Abbey will run from barrier two and is will be looking to continue her winning ways after the Magic Millions Perth 2YO Classic in January.
Lindsey Smith trained Fuddle Dee Duddle is one of the more experienced fillies in the field, having had four race starts.
She has scored victories in two of those outings including a one length win in the Advanced Hot Water and Air Plate last start.
Sky Princess has only had one start but the Joe Byrne trained filly scored victory in her debut race in the Westspeed Plate at Ascot on March 7.
She has drawn barrier nine for the 1100 metre sprint and will be ridden by young jockey Kyra Yuill.
Another horse fresh from a victory is the Neville Parnham trained Bippo No Bungus who will run from the inside barrier on Saturday.
Other horses today named in the field are Keep Faith, Vonlenska and Novadarl.
