Learning To Fly Leads 2023 Inglis Millennium Field & Betting

Annabel Neasham’s promising filly Learning To Fly is tipped to remain undefeated as the widely-drawn favourite in Saturday’s lucrative $2 million Inglis Millennium 2023 at Royal Randwick.

The Restricted Listed Inglis Millennium (1100m) is the richest race on Sydney’s bumper 10-race Apollo Stakes Day card and features a capacity line-up of hopeful two-year-olds.

Sitting top of the Inglis Millennium odds online at Ladbrokes.com.au is Justify filly Learning To Fly at $2.90.

She is one of the widest-drawn in the field with barrier 19, which could become 16 with all emergencies out, but remains the dominant favourite with the punters.

On debut she was brave at Rosehill winning the Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) on January 28 with the money on her to go back-to-back with Chad Schofield retaining the ride.

The early Inglis Millennium market mover and second favourite backed in from $8 to $5.50 at time of publish is the Michael Freedman-trained Blanc De Blanc also drawn out in double-digits.

The I Am Invincible filly races fresh on Saturday having her third career start and chasing a second win.

She won on debut over 900m at Newcastle last November before a credible third at Randwick on December 10 when under a length beaten in the Inglis Nursery (1000m).

That event has been a key form race to follow into the more prestigious Inglis Millennium over the years, and the other best out of the Nursery facing off on Saturday are the winner Saltaire and runner-up Facile.

The John O’Shea-trained Star Turn filly Saltaire pays a very generous $21 to do the double fresh.

She is another out near the carpark with barrier 17 for jockey Kerrin McEvoy to overcome.

Her debut was a second to Blanc De Blanc at Newcastle before she posted a devastatingly close upset win in the Nursery at 20/1, and she again looks overs as the forgotten filly in the Inglis Millennium field.

Facile meanwhile is a progressive young daughter of former top-line sprinter Trapeze Artist from the stables of Gerald Ryan & Sterling Alexiou.

She debuted as the beaten odds-on favourite in the Nursery by the barest of margins and is at a current quote of $8 to atone from barrier one on Saturday.

Also being kept safe in Inglis Millennium betting this year at $6.50 is the Ciaron Maher & David Eustace-trained Kundalini drawn ideally in gate five for jockey Jason Collett.

The untapped I Am Invincible filly has had just the one run to date when debuting here at Randwick on January 21 for a close second with 55kg.

She drops a half-kilo for Saturday’s assignment and has the benefit of fitness on her side now with the debut done and dusted.

Rounding out the single-figure Millennium fancies at $9 is then the Chris Waller-trained Lazzago to be ridden from gate nine by William Pike.

The beautifully-bred Capitalist filly is one of the non-maidens in the field having won her debut at this track and distance on December 17 in a fine performance.

The 2023 Inglis Millennium is set to run as Randwick Race 6 at 3:20pm (AEDT) with full markets from Ladbrokes.com.au available here.
