Solicit Likely Queen Of The Turf Starter

Having included her name in nominations for three of this weekend’s four major Group 1 races on day 2 of The Championships at Royal Randwick, owner David Moodie has hinted at an appearance in the 2014 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) for talented filly Solicit on Saturday.

Initially confirmed for a tilt at the Australian Oaks (2400m), Moodie told TVN Solicit is no chance of accepting a position in that final field if track conditions remain consistent with those featured on a wet day at Randwick on Derby Day last weekend.

“She’s not running on a heavy track over a mile and a half” Moodie said of Solicit’s Oaks nomination.

“At this stage, I’d say she’d run in the Queen Of The Turf; back to a mile shouldn’t be an issue for her.

“She’ll be tough at the mile; that’s her.”

Unlucky to run third behind Kirramosa and Zanbagh in the 2013 Group 1 Crown Oaks (2400m) on November 7th, Moodie added an appearance in the $4 million Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) also appears to be too much of a far reach this weekend.

“It might be a bit tough” Moodie added of the Queen Elizabeth’s distance.

Securing an impressive record of four wins and five places from only eleven competitive race starts to date, Solicit failed to finish outside the places in six appearances over the 2013 Spring Racing Carnival; securing back-to-back victories to open the impressive preparation and finishing an unlucky third in the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) prior to the Crown Oaks.

Returning to the track in arguably career-best form this time in, the Street Cry filly again opened with consecutive wins in the Group 3 The Vanity (1400m) and Group 2 Kewney Stakes (1400m).

Experiencing something of an off night when fourth in the Listed Alexandra Stakes (1600m) on March 21st, Solicit returned to commanding form with a strong run for second in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) last time out on April 5th.

With news the Queen Of The Turf Stakes is the most likely target this weekend, Solicit is currently offered on the third line of betting in early markets for the major Group 1 race at a particularly generous quote of $7.

Having each returned to the track in competitive form this season, Chris Waller-trained stable mates Catkins and Red Tracer currently occupy the top two spots in early Queen Of The Turf betting markets, offered at $3 and $3.80 odds respectively.
