Talented filly Sea Siren had plenty of doubters heading into the BTC Cup but after her dominant 1 1/3 length win she has demanded respect and will start as favourite in Saturday’s Group 1 2012 Doomben 10,000 (1350m).
The Fastnet Rock three-year-old may have had just six starts in her young career but her record is super impressive with four wins and two places.
But history is against the John O’Shea-trained star with not one filly winning the race since its commencement in 1933.
It will take a remarkable effort if the exciting three-year-old can back up her BTC Cup win but she has drawn nicely in barrier seven and will again have experienced rider Jim Cassidy on board.
Not sure whether to back the in-form filly this weekend? Keep reading for the stats that matter and the pros for and cons agains the $4.20 bookmaker.com.au favourite.
