Can Norzita Win the 2013 Doncaster Mile for the Fillies?

Already proven against her own sex and age group, can Norzita take the next step this Saturday in the Group 1 2013 Doncaster Mile (1600m) at Randwick?

There’s no denying the Bart Cummings-trained galloper has ability but can she defeat the older horses?

Norzita is the only filly in the race and is joined by colts Pierro and Sacred Falls in a trio of three-year-olds.

So can she continue her strong run of form in better company? Or has the step up come too soon for this daughter of Thorn Park?

Make a more informed decision after reading the following summary which includes all the key facts as well as the pros and cons about her chances in the time-honoured mile.
