A full field of 14 three-year-old fillies is engaged to face off in the $175,000 Group 2 Fitzy & Wippa’s Fast & Furious Stakes (1200m) on Saturday.

The set weights sprint runs as Randwick Race 6 at 3:10pm (AEST) on a nine-event Chelmsford Stakes Day program.

Six of the final acceptors currently sit under $10 in the Furious Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au.

The shortest-priced of those at $5 is I Am A Star drawn a treat in barrier two.

Steven King retains the ride on the Mornington-based daughter of I Am Invincible prepared by Shane Nichols.

She has won three of her four career starts to date, including two Group 3 races.

The latest was a first-up effort on August 13 at Caulfield in the Group 3 Quezette Stakes (1100m).

I Am A Star overcame barrier 13 of 13 for that victory and looks well positioned with an inside alley on Saturday chasing her third victory on the trot in her first Sydney assignment.

Two of her rivals occupy the second line of Furious Stakes betting at $6.50.

The early market mover is Awoke who has been backed in from $7.50 despite drawing wide with barrier 13.

An undefeated Chris Waller-trained daughter of Rip Van Winkle, Awoke was last seen posting a 1400m Rosehill win in early July over fellow Furious Stakes hopeful Foxplay.

That was 63 days ago, but she has been bought on fitness-wise with a good trial last month finishing second in the 900m hit-out behind Prompt Response.

Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott saddle-up the other $6.50 hope Global Glamour.

Tommy Berry rides the lightly-raced Star Witness filly from a mid-field gate.

The nicely-bred filly won her debut on a Heavy (9) track at Kembla Grange on January 30 by a commanding six and a half lengths.

Since then she has performed beautifully in two Randwick trials.

She won her latest heat over 735m on August 19, and with a likely rain-affected track on the weekend conditions suit Global Glamour to a tee.

Rounding out the single-figure fancies for the Furious Stakes are Honesty Prevails ($8), My Country ($8.50) and the aforementioned Foxplay ($8.50).

Rick Worthington saddles-up Group 1 performed Redoute’s Choice filly Honesty Prevails first-up on Saturday.

She won the Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) on debut this January by over two lengths before a fourth at Randwick in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1400m).

Her latest run was in the lucrative $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) on March 19.

Jumping a 51/1 outsider she was far from disgraced crossing under three lengths away fifth to Capitalist and is geared up for a good three-year-old debut on Saturday.

My Country is drawn wide (12) for her first-up run, but the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Poet’s Voice filly finished her two-year-old campaign in flying style.

She posted her third win at career start number four on June 11 at Eagle Farm winning Brisbane’s Listed Lancaster Stakes (1200m).

Foxplay was also very competitive last campaign.

Waller’s daughter of Foxwedge won at Rosehill by three lengths over 1350m before the second to Awoke in July.

Hugh Bowman rides her this weekend from barrier six as she looks to kick things off with a win this time in.
