Let It Slip Leads 2015 Lee Steere Classic Field

Daniel Pearce’s Placid Ark Stakes winning filly Let It Slip is out to complete the same Perth Summer Racing Carnival double achieved by Liberty’s Gem last season when she backs-up at Ascot Racecourse in this weekend’s Lee Steere Classic 2015.

Last year Liberty’s Gem won the Listed Placid Ark Stakes (1200m) before returning to Ascot a fortnight later to take out the $150,000 Group 3 Sir Ernest Lee Steere Classic (1200m).

Twelve months on and Pearce’s Lark Hill-trained daughter of Not A Single Doubt Let It Slip is looking to repeat the feat after her one length win in the lead-up race from November 21.

That was her third run at Ascot where she now boasts two wins and a third in the lead-up to her maiden Group 3 test on Kingston Town Classic Day on Saturday.

Peter Hall retains the ride this weekend and the filly will need to lift to win again after coming up with barrier eight of nine in the set weights race for three-year-olds.

Pearce has also accepted for perennial fourth placegetter Pushin’ Shapes, the Viscount gelding coming off three fourth place runs on the trot at Ascot this campaign.

The latest was behind his stablemate in the Placid Ark Stakes when beaten two lengths as a $26 chance, jockey Jarrad Noske staying on for the rematch in the Lee Steere where Pushin’ Shapes will be out to turn the tables from a nice gate three draw.

The other best performed out of the Placid Ark running this weekend is the Brian Kersley-trained runner-up Yoshi Noxious in barrier six with Brad Parnham booked to ride the lightly raced Fath gelding in place of Lucy Warwick.

After breaking his maiden status at career start number two at Ascot on November 3, Yoshi Noxious made his black-type debut two weeks back and is sure to be competitive again at the same track going up to 1400m for the first time on Saturday.

Along with Let It Slip the other last start winner in this year’s Lee Steere Classic field is the Neville Parnham-trained Kentucky Lass.

Jumping from gate five with Parnham’s son Steven in the saddle, Kentucky Lass is a well tried War Chant filly who finally broke her maiden status last Saturday at her 10th start in an 1100m run at the track.

She is on the quick back-up then as she shoots for another win going up notably in both class and distance.

Last year’s winning trainer Simon Miller meanwhile has two chances of securing another Lee Steere Classic win in 2015 with stablemates Puteri Jewel and Remember Berlin jumping from barriers nine and seven respectively.

Demerit filly Puteri Jewel is out to improve on a ninth in the Placid Ark with Chris Parnham replacing Craig Williams in the saddle while Zizou gelding Remember Berlin comes off a sixth in the same traditional lead-up.
