Running as Doomben Race 4 at 2:01pm (AEST), this season’s $100,000 Listed City Property Services Bright Shadow Handicap (1200m) originally drew a final field of 13.

The early scratching of the Paul Murray-trained Fine Mist (12) leaves a dozen fillies and mares in the mix, a wide open Bright Shadow Handicap betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au narrowly led by Palazzo Pubblico ($5).

An early market mover backed in from $6.50, the Matthew Smith-trained Conatus four-year-old comes off a 1100m win at Rosehill from April 23 and is set to get a gun run from the inside alley.

Michael Cahill has the ride from barrier one on the current favourite who shoots for her third win from five starts over 1200m, success in which would be her first Black-Type victory.

At $6 is the second favourite Frill Seeking racing first-up, also prepared by Warwick Farm’s Smith.

The five-year-old Sebring mare hasn’t raced since November last year when fourth to Little Brown Horse in Doomben’s Listed Arcade Classic (1200m).

She has trialled twice since however including a 838m win by 3.5 lengths at Randwick on May 6 bringing on for her resuming run, Frill Seeking having had four first-up runs to date for two seconds and two thirds.

Following closely are $6.50 co-third favourites Zestful and Serenade drawn in barriers nine and 10 respectively.

Newcastle’s Kris Lees trains four-year-old Redoute’s Choice mare Zestful whose last start produced a brave third to Eloping at the Gold Coast on May 7 in the Listed Silk Stocking (1200m).

Serenade also caught the eye in Black-Type class last time out, Michael Moroney’s Star Witness filly backing up from a 1200m win at Ballarat to finish third to this weekend’s 2016 Fred Best Classic favourite Rageese in the Listed Nitschke Stakes (1400m) in Adelaide.

Rounding out the single-figure Bright Shadow hopes this Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival are Gerald Ryan’s 59kg top weight Perignon ($7), Kelly Schweida’s Silk Stocking runner-up Miss Cover Girl ($8.50) and the Bjorn Baker-trained Miss Tenpins ($9).

Winner of the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) first-up in February, Snitzel filly Perignon is also a Group 1 placegetter having run third in the spring to Speak Fondly in the Flight Stakes over a mile.

Her latest run was also in Group 1 class when seventh behind English as a $41 roughie in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) during ‘The Championships’, a run she’s set to atone for here in easier company.
