There are fourteen remaining fancies in the $200,000 Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes (1500m) after the early scratching of Echo Effect whose luckless autumn continues after recovering from the heel issue that ruled him out of the Randwick Guineas only to suffer an elevated temperature this week.

Heading the updated Phar Lap Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au is Chris Waller’s gun filly Foxplay ($2.25) who continues to firm in her price to beat home the boys off two runs against the fillies this season.

Last time in the daughter of Foxwedge enjoyed the Group 2 Furious Stakes – Tea Rose Stakes double at Royal Randwick and she wasn’t far away when fourth in the wet behind La Bella Diosa in the Surround Stakes.

Out to stop Foxplay posting her first win in 2017 are the likes of the John O’Shea-trained Street Cry colt Bezel ($7.50) kicking off his autumn off a winning trial at the track and the consistent son of Northern Meteor Into Orbit ($9.50) representing Team Hawkes.

So can Foxplay salute or is there an upset Phar Lap Stakes result pending from the likes of the lightly-raced Cosmic Set ($11) coming off a Moonee Valley win under big kilos or even Star Witness filly Pumpkin Pie ($26) out to atone for her ninth in the Surround Stakes last start?


#9 Foxplay ($2.25)

If Waller’s dual Group 2 winning filly shows up, she’s the one to beat for sure. She’s drawn double-digits but has time and class to overcome with the right ride from Kerrin McEvoy. Didn’t really get through the going for the Surround Stakes fourth second-up after the good first-up second to Global Glamour in the Light Fingers. Group 1 performed and drier track has her peaking third-up.


#2 Bezel ($7.50)

Bezel will get a gun run from barrier three with Buick in the saddle of the Street Cry whose latest run was last (8th) in the Eskimo Prince. Has won a subsequent Rosehill trial and the extra metres on the weekend. Has won over a mile, is three-from-six overall and the third to Comin’ Through in the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes in the spring was close. The danger and priced accordingly.


#6 Cosmic Set ($11)

One of the least-tried runners, this son of Reset has won two of his three in easier company earning a shot in the Group 2. Last time out carried 60kg to a strong Moonee Valley win over 1500m. In Sydney for the first time here and drops right back in weight. Chance to prove ability.
