Shumookh first up over 1350m is interesting. Wyong suits but thought she'd resume over a shorter distance.


Exactly. Hopefully she jumps clean from the barrier and it’ll be a sit and steer job from the front.

Nice that the leader left the gap inside so Jmac could push through. Didn't see previous races but I gather the inside was not the place to be?  She's built like a 4yo this lady and obviously has ability to match the looks even allowing for the class and track today.

Confirmed she'll take her place in the Thousands Guineas. $3 in the all in market.

She's a brilliant filly but the mile is a bridge too far in my opinion.

Good luck to the owners and the trainer. I can see why they want to go there but she won't be winning.

Deep down Lees knows she won't get the mile. Listen to all his interviews. Especially the post race interview today.

She'll be in it for a long way but with 100 to go she'll be swamped.

I just can't see her finding another gear.

Agree. With a half decent run I think Thrillster beats her here. This is a very talented filly who does not look like she wants a mile.

Went quite a bit faster and quicker sectional than the boys and the 1st 2 races of older horses so would not write her off.

If she can get a sit just of the leaders and they don't go hard she will explode. All comes down to how much pace is involved.

I'm inclined to agree about the concern of the 1600. She reminds me of another horse the might have been danglissa or glamma something . . Most brilliant filly but probably won't get the mile. Having said that her spring from the 500 to the 200 was pretty bloody good and was entitled to tire. My assertive play ticket for 20k would be looking good right now if she didn't go amiss .

If I owned her I would go for it and then back up in the coolmore.

The horse that was with her went back through the field, it was a 300m jump from her previous start. She’ll be fine in the mile.

Shane Anderson - "Does she give you the impression she's going to eat up the mile?"

Lees' reply - "I wouldn't say eat up."

Look, it just depends on what kind of run she gets. If one or two things go wrong she will be very vulnerable late. I think that's obvious.

If she gets a bum to follow and does no work she might be fine.

Just couldn't possibly have her at $3.00 given the query.

This situation reminds me a little bit of Rich Enuff. He battled evenly to the line but the Sydney horse was stronger at the mile. Rich Enuff was never seen again at the mile.

Drawn well in gate 2.

I think ideally for her it would be best if she didn't lead. A bit of cover would give her the best chance of running the mile.

Looking forward to the race.

No need for that kind of language Sunline.LOL

I think she's worth risking at current prices. The Flight has already produced a winner, albeit on  hvy track, and it looks the best guide to my eye. If it's not I think Thrillster can also turn the tables.

Well that was obvious.

Staggering she went around at the price she did.

Lees was worried about her running 1400. That told me all l needed to know.

I was kinda surprised she even started in the Guineas cos she seemed to race keenly at 1400m and did not look like a miler. But even more surprised at how keen punters were on the day- I thought she would blow like a gale.
