There are 10 three-year-old fillies facing off in this year’s Group 3 $160,000 The Vanity (1400m) as part of the Black Caviar Lightning Day line-up at HQ.

Drawn the outside barrier with last year’s winning hoop Craig Williams in the saddle, the James Cummings-trained Medaglia D’Oro filly Katalin pays $2.60 in the latest The Vanity odds at Ladbrokes.com.au to continue her winning streak.

She kicked off her career on January 8 with a narrow win over 1200m at Warwick Farm before charging home for a nearly four length victory over 1400m in a Class 1 at Newcastle next start.

This is a notable rise in grade but from the gate Williams can settle this up-and-comer off the pace before letting her go through the gears and likely fly to the line late.

Recent history is against Katalin here however has just two of the past 10 The Vanity favourites have saluted for the punters with Solicit ($2.90 in 2014) and Tallow ($2.80 in 2011).

Three other fillies in The Vanity field are also under $10 for the win including the Tony & Calvin McEvoy-trained Pretty Brazen ($4.40) drawn midfield in barrier six with Luke Currie to ride.

The well-bred daughter of Brazen Beau was excellent last time out in November’s Group 2 Sandown Guineas (1600m) when beating the boys over the mile.

She is down in grade for her first-up assignment here back against her own kind and looks a winning chance fresh over the distance.

The Anthony Freedman-trained Meuse is the big The Vanity market mover heavily backed in from $13 to $6.

The Snitzel filly carted 60kg to a 1.5 length win over 1100m at Bendigo on February 5 ahead of her Black-Type debut where she should enjoy coming back to 56kg.

It is a notable rise in not only class but also distance for Meuse however with her only other run over further than 1100m producing a fifth at The Valley over 1200m last August.

The Mathew Ellerton & Simon Zahra-trained Parmie ($7.50) is the last of the single-figure hopefuls after a luckless second to stablemate Mrs Beckham at Caulfield last time out and has the tick of approval from the stable after time spent out on the farm outside of Melbourne.

“She went up to our farm and had 10 days up there and that really did the trick for her,” co-trainer Zahra told Racenet this week.

“She should have won her last couple and didn’t have much luck first-up.

“I think she’ll be hard to beat to be honest.

“She should get the run of the race and she’s been going really well on the track.”

As for the potential value runner in the race, The Vanity odds have eased out from $9 to $10 on the flying Will Clarken-trained Lunar Light.

Drawn close to the rails in barrier two, Akeed Mofeed filly Lunar Light is a striking grey from Adelaide coming off three wins back home including a last start 1200mn success in the wet over 1200m at the start of the month.
