For the second race in a row, the top two fillies on the leader board are absent. Group 3 LawnMaster Eulogy Stakes and Group 2 Eight Carat Classic winner Volpe Veloce (Foxwedge) is running instead in the NZB Insurance Karaka 3YO Mile at Ellerslie on Sunday, while Group 1 1000 Guineas heroine La Diosa (NZ) (So You Think) is being prepared for a Sydney autumn campaign.

With 14 and 12 points respectively, Volpe Veloce and La Diosa have a clear lead in the Filly of the Year Series. But Saturday’s race offers 6 points to the winner, 3 for second and 1.5 for third, providing the opportunity for other fillies to narrow that gap. Read More...
