The bumper two-day 2012 Cox Plate Carnival kicks off tonight at Moonee Valley and one of the most exciting races on the card is the Group 2 2012 Fillies Classic (1600m).
It features a mixture of fillies who have coem through the usual spring features such as the Thousand Guineas as well as a number of emerging hopefuls.
Topping the market is Greg Eurell’s Love For Ransom ($3.00) who at one stage was Thousand Guineas favourite after a stunning win at Moonee Valley last month.
Not far behind are progressive Peter Moody-trained filly Mareeza ($4.00) and Adelaide’s Thousand Guineas fifth Stella Lante ($4.40).
