Ghisoni Narrowly Leads 2016 Light Fingers Stakes Betting

John O’Shea’s undefeated filly Ghisoni has opened narrow favourite to keep her flawless record in check with a first-up win at Randwick Racecourse in the Light Fingers Stakes 2016 this Saturday in Sydney.

There are eight three-year-old fillies in the mix for Randwick Race 3 on Apollo Stakes Day – the $175,000 Group 2 Liberty International Underwriters Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) – including two for O’Shea and Godolphin.

O’Shea saddles-up his lightly-raced flyer Ghisoni and Group 1 performed Pearls in barriers two and one respectively, the former the better fancied of the two.

A winner of both of her career starts to date with successive wins over 1200m in Sydney last November, Lonhro filly Ghisoni sits top of the latest Light Fingers Stakes odds at paying $3.60.

It will be 77 days between runs for her by the time the Light Fingers rolls around, but she look very fit with a good barrier trial win at the track over 1050m in late January.

This filly looks the real deal and if she can rise in class she’ll be the one to beat.

The rails-drawn Pearls, a Sam Clipperton mount this weekend, is also first-up and at single figures in Light Fingers Stakes betting.

The daughter of Exceed And Excel won the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) over Honesta at this track last September before her brave fourth when defeated only three quarters of a length on October 3 in the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m).

Her lead-up trial at Randwick on January 29 was also impressive when runner-up to subsequent Eskimo Prince Stakes winner Spill The Beans, so her $5.50 price for the weekend represents value.

Shorter than her in the markets though along with Ghisoni are two other hopefuls including the market mover Stay With Me ($4).

Jumping from the outside barrier in the small field, the returning David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Street Cry filly is best known for her Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) win in the spring.

Her last start was on Victoria Derby Day at Flemington when sixth in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) and her hit-out when third to English at Randwick was solid.

The close second favourite in the markets hot on Ghisoni’s heels at $3.80 meanwhile is promising Lonhro filly Kangarilla Joy for Peter & Paul Snowden.

She comes off back-to-back wins at Rosehill and Randwick respectively over 1100m in January so is doing everything right ahead of her Light Fingers test going up in grade on Saturday.

Rounding out the single figure hopes at $8 is Gerald Ryan’s Snitzel filly Perignon, a multiple Group 2 runner-up whose last start was a very close Flight Stakes third at the track.
