There are two highlights on the program including the three-years-old fillies facing off in Race 3 – the $175,000 Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) where hot favourite Ghisoni has been scratched due to not eating up overnight, trainer John O’Shea suspecting a tooth problem.

The meeting’s namesake event then runs as Race 7 and all eleven original acceptors are still in the mix for the $250,000 Group 2 Apollo Stakes (1400m) including odds-on favourite, returning Cox Plate winning mare Winx.
