Mossfun Ready as She Resumes in Light Fingers Stakes 2015

If the star-studded Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) field wasn’t exciting enough, the race will mark the long-awaited return of Mossfun.

Running at Royal Randwick Racecourse this Saturday, the Light Fingers Stakes has attracted a top field of three-year-old fillies including Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) winner First Seal, Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) winner Amicus, and Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) winner Mossfun.

The Team Hawkes-trained filly enjoyed a very successful juvenile season last autumn, finishing in the first two in all five of her starts.

After winning both the Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) and Group 2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m), Mossfun was beaten for the first time in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m). However she returned to the winner’s circle just two weeks later in the $3.5 million Golden Slipper.

Mossfun was slow away from the gates and got back early to second last. She cut the corner on the turn and went to lead at 250 metres. The filly found the line well and proved too strong over the final stages, winning by three-quarters of a length.

Her trainers abandoned a spring campaign with the filly after she was struck down with a virus in August, which means she hasn’t had a run since last August.

Over ten months since she won the Golden Slipper, Mossfun returns to the track in the 2015 Light Fingers Stakes. The filly is set to jump from barrier seven with Tommy Berry in the saddle for the second time.

Co-trainer John Hawkes described the filly as “fine”, revealing she’s ready to race again.

“She’s fine, she’s done all she can do. She’s ready to go to the races,” he told TVN.

“We are pleased with her, we can’t do any more. She has trialled nicely a couple of times, we’re happy with what she has done.

“It is a competitive race, but she will improve on whatever she does. What we know is that she will be in there having a go.”

All eyes will be on Mossfun this Saturday, with punters and racing fans alike keen to see if the filly still has her winning flair. rates Mossfun as the $4 second favourite in the Light Fingers Stakes betting, behind First Seal at $3.
