Murwillumbah trainer Matthew Dunn is looking...
A bumper day of racing is set to take place for Hollindale Stakes day at the Gold Coast this weekend and one of the key support races is the Listed $150,000 2012 Silk Stocking (1200m) for fillies and mares.
Current slight favourite is in-form Robert Heathcote-trained mare Funtantes who is chasing her first win of 2012 after recording back-to-back runner-up finishes in Listed events at Eagle Farm.
The winner of six of 31 starts is currently at $3.80 (bookmaker.com.au), just ahead of Mascareri and Alltherightmoves who are both paying $4.80.
Alltherightmoves is stepping up to Listed level for the first time but the four-year-old mare has shown plenty of promise with six wins from eight career starts and is coming off a last-start second at eagle Farm on April 9.
Peter Snowden-trained mare Mascareri has only had one start this preparation, a sixth place effort in the Wenona Girl Quality, but the daughter of Commands has a reasonable record of seven wins from 20 starts including four over the 1200 metre Silk Stocking distance.
Following the pair in the betting market are in-form filly Saraji and top weight Montana Flyer who are both being offered at $7.50.
Trained by Brisbane’s Barry Baldwin, Saraji has been in good form recently, backing up a first-up win at Eagle Farm with a third-place effort in the Listed Mick Dittman Plate at Eagle Farm.
The talented three-year-old will run from the inside on Saturday as she looks to build on her promising record of six wins from 13 starts.
Two-time Group level winner Montana Flyer will have to turn around some recent poor form that has seen the Gai Waterhouse-trained mare finish a best of fifth in three starts in 2012.
Also set to run are Rex Lipp-trained mare Dual Chamber ($9.00), Mossman mare Mossriver ($19.00) and local outsider Beethog ($61.00).
