Bennetta Tops Strong 2013 Surround Stakes Field

Exciting filly Bennetta will have to overcome a strong 2013 Surround Stakes (1400m) field if she is to claim a fourth consecutive win at Warwick Farm on Saturday.

The Grahame Begg-trained galloper heads into Saturday’s Group 2 three-year-old fillies’ race in terrific form and is coming off a two-length win in the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes.

But it won’t be easy for Bennetta who will also have to overcome the outside barrier as well as some strong rivals in the 12-horse field.

Drawing far better is Clarry Conners’ Crown Oaks winner Dear Demi who will run second-up from barrier six.

The triple black-type winner began her autumn campaign in positive style with a third-place finish in the Light Fingers Stakes.

Stepping up in class but chasing a third-straight victory is Gary Frazer-trained filly Campania.

The emerging galloper put together back-to-back wins at Rosehill in December and January and will make her stakes debut this weekend.

Also after a third consecutive win but rising in grade is Song And Laughter who has recently been seen winning at Wyong and Canterbury.

Talented but needing to bounce back from a first-up eighth in the Light Fingers Stakes is the Patinack-owned Longport.

The Casino Prince filly won the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes in the spring and also finished second in the Group 1 Flight Stakes and fourth in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas.

Gai Waterhouse-trained filly Driefontein has yet to return to the heights that saw her win the Magic Millions Classic as a two-year-old but has still been solid so far this autumn.

The daughter of Fastnet Rock arrives in the race on the back of consecutive fourths in the Light Fingers Stakes and the Group 3 Millie Fox Stakes.
