Nechita Returns in 2012 Coolmore Stud Stakes

Gun Patinack filly Nechita will make her return in the Group 1 2012 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) at Flemington on Saturday in what will be her first run since failing as favourite in the Group 1 Golden Rose.


Nechita will be part of a strong Coolmore Stud Stakes field at Flemington on Saturday

The John Thompson-trained three-year-old won the Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) by two lengths first-up and was one of the most hyped youngsters heading into the spring.

She failed to show the same explosiveness over 1400 metres in the Golden Rose and was beaten 6 1/2 lengths in sixth position.

Thompson has described Nechita as the best horse he’s ever trained and is confident a return to 1200 metres will allow her to again make an impact.

“She has been in Melbourne about three weeks and looks amazing,” Thompson said.

“There’s plenty of good horses in it but I think she’s up to it.”

The daughter of Fastnet Rock suffered a cut to her leg in the Golden Rose but Thompson said she has made a full recovery and will have a jump-out tomorrow to finalise her preparation for this week’s test.

Nechita has had just three career starts, with her debut in June the first sign of her potential as she scored a dominant 3 1/2 length win at Warwick Farm.

But she faces some quality opponents on Saturday including star Gerald Ryan-trained filly Snitzerland and Queensland colt Sizzling.

Snitzerland, the Golden Slipper runner-up to Pierro, is unbeaten this spring, having won the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes, Group 2 Danehill Stakes, Group 3 Champagne Stakes and the Blue Sapphire.

Sizzling starred at the Brisbane Winter Carnival with four wins including the Group 1 TJ Smith and was impressive first-up when beaten only a half-length when fourth in the Blue Sapphire.
