York Race 3

Al Basti Equiworld Dubai Middleton Fillies' Stakes (Fillies' And Mares' Group 2)

Prize Money: AUD $276,752

FREE WIND (3) wasn't seen to best effect when fifth in the G1 British Champions Fillies & Mares Stakes on heavy ground at Ascot during October. The classy John and Thady Gosden trained mare made a winning reappearance in this event twelve months go. May do so once more. BLUESTOCKING (1) represents the Ralph Beckett yard. This Classic runner-up finished second in the aforementioned Ascot G1 and holds strong claims especially if the rain arrives. SAPPHIRE SEAS (6) is likely capable of better than she showed when second attempting the 1800m G2 Balanchine at Meydan in February. INFINITE COSMOS (4) finished third behind the just mentioned in the John Musker Fillies Stakes at Yarmouth last September. Could have more to offer this season.

Group 1 placegetter. Second run back. First-up after nine months 3rd in a small field at Newmarket (Rowley) in the G2 Dahlia Stakes on May 5 over 1800m, 9 len behind Stay Alert with 58kg at $8. Previously second-up 3rd of 9 at Epsom Downs in the G1 The Oaks on June 2 over 2400m, 2 len behind Soul Sister carrying 58kg at $41. Fitter but others appeal more.
