Unsurprisingly the Tony Gollan-trained last start Doomben winning filly Zelady’s Night Out has opened favourite to win at the track again in this Saturday’s Calaway Gal Stakes 2015.
A lead-up to the $2 million Magic Millions 2YO Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast on January 9, this weekend’s $100,000 Listed The Groove Train Calaway Gal Stakes (1050m) features a final field of a dozen two-year-old fillies.
Many have next month’s Magic Millions Classic in their sights including early favourite for the Doomben run on Lough Neagh Stakes Day Zelady’s Night Out.
She pays $2.60, in from $2.80, in the latest Calaway Gal Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au chasing back-to-back wins at the track and distance after a runaway four and a half-length victory from mid-November on debut.
Gollan’s daughter of Myboycharlie, also in the top three in futures Gold Coast Magic Millions 2YO Classic betting, jumps from a gun barrier three draw on the weekend with Jim Byrne in the saddle for a second time.
The only other two fillies under double figures in Calaway Gal Stakes betting this Brisbane Summer Racing Carnival are The Last Kiss ($4.40) and Serena’s Pride ($5) drawn in barriers eight and four respectively.
Paul Hammersley stays on Steven O’dea’s Sebring filly The Last Kiss who saluted over 1100m at the track three weeks back in her maiden start despite missing the start.
Serena’s Pride meanwhile makes a raid from Sydney, the Gai Waterhouse-trained Fastnet Rock filly having been narrowly beaten on debut at Warwick Farm on November 25 over 1000m.
Glen Boss, in Queensland for the jockeys’ State of Origin series, has the ride on the speedy up-and-comer who is up in distance and class for her first run outside of Sydney.
Outside of the hopes under $10 to win are plenty of nice value fillies with genuine claims this weekend including Royal Tithe ($13), Snow Fields ($13) and the best-tried runner in the mix Spot The Diff ($14) with a wide gate 11 draw to overcome.
The Sunshine Coast’s John Zielke prepares Show A Heart filly Royal Tithe who comes to her first run without official trial form, while fellow debutant Snow Fields is prepared by Chris Munce and is a daughter of ill-fated sire Northern Meteor.
This will be the fourth career start for Zielke’s other runner Spot The Diff however, the Snitzel filly winning two back over 1100m before her last start sixth beaten only 1.6 lengths by Emtevee Queen on November 28 in her third Doomben run.
