Can Yosei Break Winning Drought in 2012 Myer Classic?

Stuart Webb’s triple Group 1 winner Yosei hasn’t won since July 2011 but her pure talent means she can’t be ruled out ahead of Saturday’s Group 1 2012 Myer Classic (1600m) at Flemington.


Yosei is out to break a long drought in Saturday's Myer Classic

The five-year-old is a genuine Group 1 performer on her day and signalled that she might be coming into form when running third in the Toorak Handicap on Caulfield Guineas Day.

Webb is looking to the Flemington track as a key reason to be confident ahead of her latest spring outing, suggesting it should suit her “get back, run on” style.

“If there’s one track she should be suited at it should be Flemington,” Webb said.

So will Yosei finally return to the winners circle this weekend? Keep reading for the key stats as well as reasons to back or sack Yosei this weekend.
