Set to run as Flemington Race 5 at 2:40pm (AEDT) on Saturday afternoon, this season’s $200,000 Group 2 Kewney Stakes (1400m) has attracted a final field of fifteen three-year-old fillies.

Heading the latest Kewney Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $2.70 and firming to post her first win of the year is the Shane Nichols-trained I Am A Star.

The daughter of I Am Invincible is best known for her win over the mares at weight-for-age in Melbourne over the spring in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m).

She has had two Caulfield runs this time in for a brave first-up second to Chautauqua in the Group 2 Rubiton Stakes (1100m) and last start seventh to Sheidel in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) on Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes Day.

Going up from 50kg that run, where she did it tough from barrier 16 of 17, I Am A Star carries 55.5kg under the set weights conditions of the Kewney Stakes.

She will relish the drop back in class however and coming back up against a field of her own kind from a gun barrier four draw with Group 1 winning hoop Dean Yendall in the saddle.

Despite the size of the field just three other fillies are under double figures in Kewney Stakes betting include Ellicazoom and Oregon’s Day at an equal $6.

Neville Parnham prepares ultra-consistent Perth visitor Ellicazoom, the three-year-old daughter of Testa Rossa having run second in her four latest starts including her Melbourne debut on February 25.

She was narrowly beaten when runner-up behind Savanna Amour in the Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes (1400m) and gets the same metres in her first look at the Flemington track this weekend.

Oregon’s Day should get a lovely run from barrier three with Mark Zahra riding the Mick Price-trained Domesday filly.

Runner-up in the Group 3 Kevin Hayes Stakes (1200m) first-up, Oregon’s Day was last seen running just a neck away third in the Angus Armanasco Stakes and also runs at Flemington for the first time on Saturday.

The other top fancy in the mix paying $8.50 after suffering an early blow with a wide barrier 14 of 15 draw is the Darren Weir-trained Not A Single Doubt filly Kenedna.

A winner of three of her nine career starts to date, Kenedna comes off a Group 3 The Vanity (1400m) win at Flemington where she beat a class field including Crown Oaks runner-up Harlow Gold (3rd).

She gets the same track and distance on the weekend and looks a huge hope again even with the nasty barrier.

Other notable fillies in the mix include January’s Magic Millions 3YO Guineas winning daughter of Hinchinbrook Flying Jess ($11), the John O’Shea-trained Fragonard ($11) up in class with Joao Moreira riding and last start Typhoon Tracy runner-up at Moonee Valley Modern Wonder ($17).
