Just Now Quality 2012 – Final Field and Barriers Released

A full field of 16 horses plus two emergencies has been announced for the Listed 2012 Just Now Quality which will take place at Eagle Farm on Saturday.


Fillydelphia is the topweight for Saturday's Just Now Quality at Eagle Farm

The $80,000 event for fillies and mares features plenty of quality including Sydney mare Jester’s Girl who won the Listed Travel Associates Classic (1200m) earlier this month.

Trained by Gerald Ryan, the four-year-old will carry 54.5kg this weekend when she runs from barrier eight.

Robert Heathcote’s trio of Fillydelphia, Funtantes and Fire Up Fifi occupy the top three weight positions with Fillydelphia to carry the topweight of 59.5kg.

The five-year-old earned the weight on the back of an outstanding summer campaign last year but she has thus far failed to recapture that form and will have to bounce back from a last-place effort at her most recent start if she is to be competitive on Saturday.

Funtantes will carry 58.5kg and will be out to continue her good recent form which has seen her finish in the top three from three starts this preparation.

Fire Up Fifi was not at her best first-up when fifth in the Travel Associates Classic but showed her ability during the winter when she won five of seven starts and placed on the two other occasions.

Risk Aversion also struggled first-up but possesses plenty of quality which was on display during the winter when she was beaten by just over a length when sixth in the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara at Eagle Farm.

Other notable runners include last-start winners Sunset Affair, Purfectress and Amalfi Dreams and the Garnett Taylor-trained Divine City.
