A capacity field of promising two-year-olds face off in the $3.5 million Group 1 Longines Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) this Saturday in Sydney and the fillies shape-up as the ones to beat this autumn.

The official 2017 Golden Slipper Stakes Field & Barriers were announced by Racing NSW on Tuesday morning.

Post-barriers the updated Golden Slipper odds at Ladbrokes.com.au have the top three lines of betting occupied by fillies with Houtzen ($4.40), She Will Reign ($5) and Catchy ($5.50) there to show up the boys.

Of those the best supported early in Golden Slipper Stakes betting is Catchy firming in from $7 to $5.50 to continue her undefeated career.

The flying daughter of Fastnet Rock has won all four of her starts so far including the impressive Group 1 Ladbrokes Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) win at Caulfield on February 25.

The last two-year-old to complete the interstate Blue Diamond – Golden Slipper double was Sepoy (2011) and the money is coming for Catchy to be the next.

She will be ridden by her regular hoop Craig Williams who chases his second Golden Slipper Stakes success after the victory on Miss Finland (2006), prepared by Catchy’s co-trainer David Hayes.

In the Golden Slipper Stakes barriers, Catchy drew gate eight and she could come into seven if the three emergencies fail to get a start on race day.

Barrier seven last produced a Golden Slipper Stakes winner in the aforementioned Miss Finland in another form line connections for Catchy.

The Toby Edmonds-trained Houtzen has retained top spot in the Slipper markets at $4.40 despite drawing out in barrier 16, which will become 14 at best.

The Gold Coast-based daughter of I Am Invincible has also won her opening four starts heading into the Group 1 on Saturday, including carting a record 63kg to victory for a four length Eagle Farm win last time out.

The other top fancied filly She Will Reign came up with gate 13 and if she comes into 11 that would be a nice omen for her trainer Gary Portelli.

“My lucky number is 11 so that’s a good start,” Portelli said at the barrier draw on Tuesday morning.

“It’s all worked out good.”

She Will Reign suffered her first defeat when run down by Frolic in the wet at Randwick in the Group 2 Reising Stakes (1200m) a fortnight ago.

She was put through her paces with a Tuesday morning track gallop at Warwick Farm, impressing Portelli with her work.

“She pulled up enormous [from her last start,” he said.

“I worked her this morning in an easy gallop over 1000m at the course proper at Warwick Farm.

“She’s in great order going into the race.

“She’s got that fitness to fall back on now.”

Rounding out the single-figure Golden Slipper hopes is the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Pariah ($8) in barrier four for last year’s winning stable.
