A capacity field of young stayers face off a little later in the afternoon for the Group 3 SA Fillies Classic (2500m), while there are two scratchings leaving 14 hopefuls for the Group 3 RA Lee Stakes (1600m) taking place as Race 7.

There is one official scratching out of The Goodwood field with the Chris Bieg-trained Free Of Debt (14) coming out leaving 14 class sprinters.
