Snitzerland Ready for 2012 Champagne Stakes

Star filly Snitzerland is primed and ready to continue her spring success in the Group 3 2012 Champagne Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley on Friday night.


Snitzerland is poised to continue her success in Friday night's Champagne Stakes

The exciting three-year-old has recorded impressive victories in both the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) and the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1100m) so far this spring and she appears to be a class above her rivals again this weekend.

One of 10 entries for Saturday’s $150,000 sprint, Snitzerland has been given a handicap rating of 102 which which is 13 points higher than the next closest Hoss Amor (89).

Perhaps the only unknown about the daughter of Snitzel was her ability to handle the unique tight-turning track at Moonee Valley but trainer Gerald Ryan has left nothing to chance.

The Rosehill trainer gave her a gallop at the Valley yesterday morning and he reported she passed with flying colours.

“She came here for some experience on the track,” Ryan said.

“I’ve always thought she goes better the Melbourne way and she didn’t turn a hair here today.”

The Golden Slipper runner-up has won four of seven starts and more than $1 million in prizemoney and is being aimed at the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes in November.

Hoss Amor presents one of the biggest dangers to the star filly and is having her first start of the spring following a successful Brisbane winter campaign.

The daughter of General Nediym won three of four stakes level starts and all the victories came at margins of more than a length.

Also entered for Friday night’s Champagne Stakes is the Tony Vasil-trained Elite Elle who was unbeaten in her first four career starts before finishing fourth to Lady Of Harrods in the McNeil Stakes earlier this month.

For great odds on all the Moonee Valley action on Friday, keep an eye on who will have great value odds.
