More Strawberries and Parables Top 2010 Flight Stakes Field

September 30th, 2010

The final field and barrier draw has been released for the 2010 Flight Stakes. The race is set to jump this Saturday, September 2 at Randwick Racecourse and will see another showdown between rivals More Strawberries and Parables who share the favourite position at many online betting sites.

The 2010 Coolmore Flight Stakes will be held this Saturday, October 2 as part of a full day of racing that features no less than four Group 1 races.

The two horses have gone up against one another in their last three outings, most recently the Tea Rose Stakes (1500m). The Gai Waterhouse-trained More Strawberries bested rival Parables, taking a convincing a first place finish. The three-year-old filly looks set to take yet another win, and is listed at $2.70 odds. She’ll be jumping from the coveted barrier number one. Jockey Nash Rawiller will be in the saddle.

The emerging Parables is also listed at $2.70 to win. The three-year-old will be jumping from barrier number six with Corey Brown aboard. She proved that she can beat her Waterhouse-trained rival in the Silver Shadow Stakes when she outran More Strawberries to take the win in late August. Plenty of punters will be backing Parables to do the same in this upcoming Group 1 event.

The Tim Martin-trained Sasa is the fourth favourite when it comes to the odds, but plenty of experts have tipped the three-year-old filly as one to watch in this $400,000 race. Slightly ahead of her is third favourite Yosei. The Stuart Webb filly has fared well in recent outings, taking a fourth place finish in the McNeil Stakes (1200m) earlier this month.

The 2010 Coolmore Flight Stakes will be held this Saturday, October 2 as part of a full day of racing that features no less than four Group 1 races. This includes the Spring Champion Stakes (2000m), The Metropolitan (2400m), and the Epsom Handicap (1600m).
