STYLISH MEMPHIS TO FOLLOW HER OUT FROM SECOND ROW
Kentuckiana Lodge filly Dr Susan’s making a habit of drawing the middle of the front row.
The Bettor’s Delight-Safedra filly has again come up with barrier five, this time in the $A150,000 Pryde’s Easifeed Victoriia Oaks Final at Melton on Saturday night.
Fellow NZ-trained filly Stylish Memphis, who beat her in last week’s opening heat, has drawn 13, the outside of the second row, over the mobile 2760m trip.
With the likely withdrawal of emergency Dasha The Great, Stylish Memphis will then follow out Dr Susan from five off the back row.
Maajida, last week’s other Oaks heat winner for the Emma Stewart stable, will start from two off the second row.
The Victoria Oaks field is: Jenden Strike 1, Amelia Rose 2, Rockingwithsierra 3, Good Faith 4, Dr Susan 5, Its Ebonynivory 6, Itz Longtall Sally 7; SECOND ROW: Soho Gloria Jane 8, Maajida 9, Dasha The Great (E1) 10, Alice Kay 11, Its Beaujolais 12, Stylish Memphis 13.
