She is the short-priced favourite in a smart field but can Guy Walter’s Group 1 winning filly Streama overcome an awkward gate and hefty weight to win the Coolmore Classic 2012 at Rosehill Gardens on Saturday?
The Stratum three-year-old enjoyed a three-from-three success in last year’s Princess Series Triple Crown culminating with a win the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on October 1, and on Saturday Streama will be out to become a dual elite level winner by taking out the $600,000 Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1600m).
Coming off a win in the Surround Stakes Streama is the clear $3.30 favourite in the Coolmore Classic odds at our preferred online bookie bookmaker.com.au despite her 55kg weight and barrier nine draw.
So what does the history books and Coolmore Classic form guide say about Streama winning?
Will she continue the strong record of three-year-old fillies in the feature, or will one of her quality rivals such as the in-form Steps In Time or last-start Mille Fox winner Red Tracer get the better of her on the day?
Below the Races.com.au has listed all the facts and stats both supporting Streama, and suggesting an upset Coolmore Classic result by another, so you can make a well-informed wager at bookmaker.com.au with the best chance of success.

No – Streama Won’t Win the 2012 Coolmore Classic
- Trainer has expressed concerns both over her weight (55kg) and barrier (9)

- The only 3YO filly to carry more weight to victory in the race’s history was Assertive Lass with 55.5kg in 1997
