Flight Stakes Form Guide & Tips
1. Four Moves Ahead (Best Each Way – $5) Bet @ Sportsbet
That was a stylish win from the filly at Randwick, and we’re expecting her to kick on with it now.
She showed her class when running well in the Golden Slipper, and that form is starting to shine through this season.
2. Mallory ($5) Bet @ Sportsbet
Getting closer to a win after consecutive placings. Third across the line last start but she got second on protest.
There is a big race win in store for Mallory, so we wouldn’t be leaving her out of calculations.
3. Swift Witness ($8.50) Bet @ Sportsbet
She is always around the mark and she puts herself into the race. Likely to push forward from the draw and try run them into the ground.
Odds could be worth taking.
4. She’s All Class ($11) Bet @ Sportsbet
Backed in two runs back from a spell, but she hasn’t matured into a three-year-old. McDonald sticks with her, but she can’t have her until she shows improvement.
5. Startantes (Best Bet – $3.80) Bet @ Sportsbet
A quality Queenslander who has come through different races. The filly finished sixth behind In the Congo last Saturday, which is excellent form.
Her three wins prior were all tidy and we’re confident of a big effort.
6. Latino Blend ($31) Bet @ Sportsbet
Yet to win this preparation but her two placings earlier were good. Another runner that is getting close to posting a big win.
Chance at the big odds.
7. Hinged ($27) Bet @ Sportsbet
She looked good winning three on the bounce, but we weren’t impressed with her effort at Kembla Grange.
It wasn’t an easy race, but neither is the Flight Stakes.
8. Von Trapp ($23) Bet @ Sportsbet
A one-time winner from three starts. Specked at odds, but we couldn’t include her in our selections until we’ve seen more from her.
9. Chill ($61) Bet @ Sportsbet
A winner earlier this preparation, but her efforts since have been only fair. It would be a surprise if she got up to win at Group 1 level.
10. Yearning (Best Roughie – $34) Bet @ Sportsbet
She took five starts to break maiden grades, and it came only at Newcastle, but we like the way she stretched out late.
The daughter of Snitzel could have a bright future and we can’t turn down the odds.
11. Lovemetender ($151) Bet @ Sportsbet
Big odds available and rightfully so. She has struggled since winning fresh up, and this level of racing could be beyond her.
12. Fangirl ($14) Bet @ Sportsbet
An interesting runner who scored by 5.3 lengths in a one-sided effort at Goulburn. A big rise in class, but she has been specked.
Keep an eye on the market.
13. Never Been Kissed ($35) Bet @ Sportsbet
Started her career with consecutive wins before running ninth last start. She would need to improve considerably on that effort.
14. Stray ($31) Bet @ Sportsbet
Yet to win or place from four starts, so we’re surprised she’s not longer with bookmakers.
15. Galactic Angel ($151) Bet @ Sportsbet
Triple figured odds available and rightfully so. She looks tested against this company, but connections are having a go.
16. Left Reeling ($51) Bet @ Sportsbet
She has placed in all four starts to date, but it would be a huge effort to place in the Flight Stakes.
