She may have only two career starts to her name but that hasn’t stopped bookmakers installing Simon Miller-trained filly Miss Bux as favourite for the Group 3 2012 Lee-Steere Classic (1400m) at Ascot on Saturday.
The daughter of General Nediym is $2.90 top elect at bookmaker.com.au for the Perth feature where she will be out to keep her unbeaten early career record alive.
After bursting on to the scene with a 1 ½ length win at Bunbury in November she backed that up with another strong performance to take out the Listed Placid Ark Stakes by a length at Ascot on December 1.
Second in the market is Hard Ball Get ($3.80), also from the Simon Miller stable, who will be out to turn the tables on his stablemate after finishing second in the Placid Ark Stakes.
Prior to that the Aussie Rules gelding was unbeaten in the first two starts of his career which took place at Belmont Park in July.
Chasing a third consecutive victory is Passion Cantata ($4.80) who was last seen winning Theplayeronline.com.au Handicap at Ascot on December 1.
Fuddle Dee Duddle ($5.50) may be one of the longer-priced runners in the field but she represents tremendous value if she can produce her best form this weekend.
The Lindsey Smith-trained filly won the Group 3 Champion Stakes (1600m) at Ascot in November and will appreciate a drop back in class after finishing fifth to Luckygray in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic.
The final runner in the field is Miss Solis ($6.50) who will have to turn around a disappointing last-start performance in the Champion Stakes but was a stakes winner two starts before that and boasts an excellent record of five wins from 11 starts.
