5/10/2019 Randwick tips and best bets: Flight Stakes

Rivals lock horns again

Distance 1,600m
Grade Group 1 
Track Rating Good 4
Prizemoney $500,000
Class Set-weights 3 Y.O Fillies
2018 winner Oohood ($14.00)

The Flight Stakes is the premier Group One race of the Sydney Spring Carnival for three-year-old fillies. 

Previous winners of the Randwick feature include Alizee (2017), More Joyous (2009), Samantha Miss (2008) and Sunline (1998). 

This year's edition of the Flight Stakes looks a two horse affair between Funstar and Probabeel. 

Probabeel fell agonisingly short of Funstar in the key lead up race here a fortnight ago, and will be desperate to turn the tables on her rival. 

With a small field of six engaged, punters should expect a slowly run race and those horses who can sit on-pace to have an edge.

The market has this marked as a two horse race.

Funstar has been backed from $2.00 into $1.90, while Probabeel has drifted from $2.05 out to $2.30. 

 

Horse Racing Key Runners

#1 Funstar $2.00 > $1.90

Did plenty wrong in the Tea Rose, but did enough to beat the highly touted Libertini and Probabeel. 

She'll strip fitter from her second-up run and will relish the step up to 1600m. 

The filly looks the only leader here and you'd expect James McDonald to push forward and carve out even sectionals. 

She has an electric turn of foot and with an easy time of it in front, look for her to put a gap on these turning for home.

Expect her to prove too hard to run down. 

 

#2 Probabeel $2.05 > $2.30

Ran on well in the Tea Rose, finishing 0.1 lengths off Funstar. 

She settled at the rear of the field and flew late, but was entitled to finish over the top given the two in front took each other on down the straight. 

From the wide draw, she'll settle near last and will need to go to another level if she's any hope of squaring the ledger on her rival. 

 

#3 Girls Are Ready $41.00

She lacks the class of the top two, but will sit on-pace and is suited stepping out to 1600m. 

Can fill fourth place. 

 

#4 St Covet's Spirit $26.00

Finished 8 of 9 in the Tea Rose, 5.5 lengths off the front runners, but had excuses in the run. 

Would need to grow another leg to be competitive in this and looks outclassed. 

 

#5 Foxborough $27.00

Ran second in the Listed Fernhill over this track and distance last prep and will relish the 1600m second-up. 

She'll sit last and can track Probabeel into the race. I doubt she'll keep up with the top two, but she is clear third-pick. 

 

#6 Our Girl Sniti $51.00

Finished 3.2 lengths off St Covet's Spirit last start.

Not much went right that day, but he'd be lucky to finish within 6 lengths of the winner here.
