Can Norzita Salute for Bart in 2013 Coolmore Classic?

There are plenty of quality fillies lining up to take on the older mares in the Group 1 2013 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill on Saturday and heading the group is Norzita.

The Bart Cummings-trained filly brings strong form into the race and is a $5 favourite to add a second Group 1 win to her resume.

She’s still lightly raced with five wins from eight starts and takes on the older horses for the first time this weekend.

So will this exciting filly make it Group 1 win number 266 for the legendary Cummings? Or is she an undeserving favourite in a classy field?

Keep reading for the stats that matter and the pros and cons about Norzita in the $600,000 Rosehill feature.
