Single Style Out to Upset Nechita in 2012 Silver Shadow Stakes

Nechita may be the odds-on favourite for Saturday’s 2012 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) but one horse that may be able to challenge the Patinack filly is Single Style.

Single Style will be trying to upset Nechita in the Silver Shadow Stakes

The Gary Portelli-trained youngster had an impressive debut campaign in the autumn where she won two of three starts including the Listed Keith Mackay Quality ahead of Driefontein.

Portelli has elected to employ leading Queensland jockey Chris Munce for the ride who arrives in Sydney on the back of a record-breaking season where he rode more than 100 metropolitan winners.

While Portelli admits his promising filly will have to show improvement from her two-year-old career he is predicting she will do that and prove a worthy challenger to the favourite.

“All her work has been good and we’re pretty excited about her chances,” Portelli said.

The Silver Shadow Stakes stands as the first race of the Princess Series for three-year-old fillies which Single Style will play a major role in throughout the early spring.

In Saturday’s event she will have to overcome heavily-backed favourite Nechita who has opened around $2.00 in most markets.

The Fastnet Rock three-year-old has had just one start to date, winning by 3 1/2 lengths on debut at Warwick Farm in June.

The performance was so good that bookmakers across the country rushed to install her as a Golden Rose contender and that could be her next start depending on how she performs on Saturday.

Other fillies set to contest the Silver Shadow Stakes on Saturday are stakes winner Ichihara, the Darley-owned Meidung and Gerald Ryan-trained pair Flying Snitzel and Cavalry Rose.
