2016 Frances Tressady Stakes Nominations Feature Nautical

A total of 18 fillies and mares were entered on Monday for this year’s $150,000 Group 3 Frances Tressady Stakes (1400m).

Just two last start winners are in the mix including the Cranbourne-based Nautical, the six-year-old daughter of Niello last seen winning Hobart’s Group 3 Bow Mistress Trophy (1200m) on February 5.

She has winning form up to a mile so the extra metres this weekend look a non-issue, but she has had just the one win from 11 previous Flemington runs.

The other runner coming off a victory is Brendan McCarthy’s Magnus four-year-old Abohar who took out a Benchmark 70 over 1300m at Sandown-Hillside on February 17 and who is yet to race in black-type company.

The highest-rated of the nominees is the Peter Moody-trained Abidewithme, last seen running 10th beaten just over four lengths in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) back in October last Spring.

The Redoute’s Choice mare chases her first win since August last year and has a gun record over the 1400m of four wins and a second from eight starts over the distance.

The next highest rated is the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained Wawail who is third-up on Saturday.

A four-year-old daughter of Lonhro, she is yet to finish out of the money at Flemington (4-2-1-1) and is looking to improve on her sixth to Azkadellia in the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes (1400m) just last Saturday at Caulfield on Blue Diamond Stakes Day.

Last year’s Frances Tressady Stakes winner Madam Gangster (2015) was prepared by Lee & Shannon Hope, the stable represented in this year’s nominations by Choose.

The Starcraft five-year-old ran third two back behind Tuscan Sling in the Group 3 Geoffrey Bellmaine Stakes (1200m) before her eighth when still only beaten two and a half lengths in the Mannerism.

The best over the line in last Saturday’s Mannerism Stakes and nominated for the quick back-up in the Tressady Stakes is fourth-placed My Sister Lil.

Trained at Cranbourne by John Price the Snitzel five-year-old was beaten only a quarter lengths at her second start in Melbourne, the former Perth-based mare chasing her first black-type win since March of 2014 in WA.

Multiple Group 2 placegetter and Group 1 performer Jessy Belle represents Luke Oliver and is out to continue her good form over the distance (9-3-2-2), while Pat Carey has entered his recent Listed WJ Adams Stakes winning four-year-old Shakespearean Lass.

Perth’s Neville Parnham continues his Melbourne raid this summer – autumn season with Vital Importance, and the Robbie Griffiths-trained Mossbeat faces her last start conqueror Nautical after a fourth in Tasmania’s Bow Mistress.

A four-year-old daughter of Mossman, Mossbeat is second-up on the weekend with her last start last time in being a good third to Solicit in the Group 3 Summoned Stakes (1500m) in mid-November.
