Missy Longstocking Heads 2015 Nudgee Fillies & Mares Handicap Field

14 horses will tackle the Listed Nudgee Fillies and Mares Handicap (1200m) at Doomben Racecourse on Saturday after acceptances were taken on Wednesday morning.

The Liam Birchley-trained Missy Longstocking tops the field with the top weight of 59kg but will get an ideal start from barrier three with Damian Browne to ride.

The four-year-old mare had a successful summer last year, running third in both the Listed Mode Plate (1200m) and Group 3 Vo Rogue Plate (1350m). However an injury sustained after running 11th in the Magic Millions Guineas (1400m) saw the mare on the sidelines for exactly twelve months.

Missy Longstocking returned to form in the Magic Millions Sprint (1100m) at the Gold Coast on January 10, finishing just half a length behind winner Straturbo in third place.

Other 2015 Nudgee Fillies & Mares Handicap runners coming via the Magic Millions Race Day include Tukiyo, Endless Shadow, Pickabee, Pure Reality, and Zippity Lass.

Peter Hulbert’s Endless Shadow won the Magic Millions Fillies & Mares Handicap (1300m) two weeks ago from the wide 13th gate so shouldn’t have any issues jumping from barrier 11 on Saturday. The six-year-old mare will ride with Tegan Harrison once again.

Lacey Morrison’s Tukiyo, Gillian Heinrich’s Pure Reality and Zippity Lass all lost to Endless Shadow at the Gold Coast and are set for a re-match at Doomben.

Pure Reality had the best result of the three in fourth place and will enjoy a start from barrier five on Saturday. Tukiyo finished 12th after winning at Toowoomba a fortnight earlier and will need to overcome a jump from the second-widest gate while Zippity Lass, who finished last, will jump from barrier nine.

Caitlin Lavin’s Pickabee finished midfield in the Magic Millions Sprint on her first run since June last year but will enjoy the inside run from barrier one in the Nudgee Fillies & Mares Handicap with Ryan Wiggins as jockey.
