Run at Royal Randwick Racecourse, this year’s $150,000 Group 3 Kari JHB Carr Stakes (1400m) attracted 21 nominations on Monday including Perignon who is looking to bounce back off two recent losses.

Three back in mid-February at Randwick she won the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) in her first run since crossing third to Speak Fondly in the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) at the track in the spring.

She ran third next-up in the Group 3 Birthday Card Stakes (1200m), before things went amiss from a wide barrier (14 of 16) when 13th to Tempt Me Not in the Group 3 PJ Bell Stakes (1200m).

Ryan has a total of four JHB Carr Stakes nominees this Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival with Perignon joined by stablemates Girl Sunday, Cartier Rock and Muzyka who was third in the Group 2 Wakeful Stakes (2000m) at Flemington last Derby Day.

Just two of the fillies come off a last start win with the Michael Kent-trained Abbey Marie who took out her debut over 1300m at Sandown-Lakeside on March 23 and Tap This for Peter & Paul Snowden.

Grey Tapit filly Tap This won at Wyong over 1200m carrying 58kg and is one of five Team Snowden-trained entries for Saturday’s Group 3 feature.

The father and son training duo have also entered Stratum filly Brigadoon Rise, the out-of-form Denpurr, consistent Street Cry filly Maraam stepping up in class and Regatta Rebel.

Higher up the ratings is the Bjorn Baker-trained daughter of Snippetson Lady Sniper who won the Listed Gosford Guineas (1200m) two back over Kimberly Star.

Lady Sniper also raced in the PJ Bell Stakes on Day 1 of ‘The Championships’ and finished sixth.

The best out of that race and nominated for the weekend’s clash is the John O’Shea-trained Exceed And Excel filly Pearls who crossed a half-length away for second.

Fourth in the Flight Stakes, Pearls is the sole Godolphin hope in the JHB Carr this season.

Further looking to frank the three-year-old form coming out of New Zealand this autumn meanwhile is the Stephen Marsh-trained Darci Brahma filly No More Tears.

A fortnight back Tavago won the Group 1 ATC Derby (2400m) over the locals before last Saturday saw the Marsh-trained Sofia Rosa win the Group 1 ATC Oaks (2400m).

Marsh returns with No More Tears this weekend, the Group 3 winner back home out to atone for her last when 14th behind Two Blue in the Group 2 Sapphire Stakes (1200m) last Saturday on Queen Elizabeth Stakes Day.
