2016 Lee Steere Classic Field & Barriers

One of the key support acts on the Kingston Town Classic Day race card at Ascot Racecourse in Perth on Saturday is the Lee Steere Classic 2016 for three-year-olds.

Running as Ascot Race 4 at 2:24pm (WA time), this year’s $100,000 Listed Sir Ernest Lee Steere Classic (1400m) features a final field of 10 runners.

Among the likely favourites in Lee Steere Classic betting when markets open at Ladbrokes.com.au is the Simon Miller-trained Caipirinha.

Drawn in barrier seven with Joseph Azzopardi riding the super-consistent daughter of Nicconi, the in-form filly looks set to round out her campaign after Saturday’s run.

She won the Listed Belgravia Stakes (1200m) back in October before a second to Ellicazoom in the Listed Burgess Queen Stakes (1400m) over the distance she’s running over in the Lee Steere Classic.

Rising in class on November 12 Caipirinha ran fifth over the mile at Ascot behind Samovare in the Group 3 WA Champion Fillies Stakes (1600m).

She didn’t really look to appreciate those metres and was dropped back to 1200m a week later for a runaway 2.25 length win in the Listed Placid Ark Stakes (1200m).

Against the girls she looks the one to beat back over 1400m.

Also out of a top three run in the Placid Ark Stakes and taking to the Ascot track in the Lee Steere Classic on Saturday is the Stan Bates-trained third placegetter Stored Energy.

The Alfred Nobel filly was beaten under three lengths by Caipirinha and chases her first win at her seventh Ascot run this weekend.

Jason Whiting continues his association aboard the up-and-comer who gets a gun run from the inside alley.

Also drawn well in barrier two is the Daniel Morton-trained Lusaha who has Sydney hoop Hugh Bowman riding.

The More Than Ready gelding enjoyed back-to-back October wins earlier this prep before a brave third when only a half-length off the winner Saul’s Special in the Listed Fairetha Stakes (1400m).

He was tested in the Group 2 WA Guineas (1400m) on November 19 finishing 2.5 lengths away fifth and should appreciate the drop in both class and distance this weekend.

Former Perth jockey turned champion Victorian hoop Damien Oliver also rides a genuine hope in the race jumping in the saddle of the Sean Casey-trained son of Helmet Chin Strap.

The galloper rises to stakes’ company for the first time since March when he crossed fourth to star filly Whispering Brook.

He has finished second or third in his three runs this campaign including behind Gatting over 1100m here on November 16 and has his first look at the 1400m on the weekend.

See below for the full Sir Ernest Lee Steere Classic 2016 field, barriers and jockeys with the markets to be released at Ladbrokes.com.au shortly.
