Flight stakes looks OUR MALAMBO set to be Fabulass
MISS FABULASS is poised to win her first Group 1 in Saturday’s Flight Stakes (1600m) and judging by her gallop on Saturday, the daughter of Frankel is unbeatable.
Working solo on the course proper (20m out) with regular partner Mal Ollerton in the saddle, the filly ran 1000m 1.10.05 coming up the last 600m under a vice-like grip in 36.75.
Over the last 100 metres, Miss Fabulass was awesome running through the line in a similar style to when she won the Group 2 Tea Rose on September 15.
Fasten your seat belt and enjoy the Flight!
A short time later, classy mares INVINCIBLE GEM and JUST DREAMING joined forces on the Course Proper over same journey and clocked 1.10.70 (37.50) under restraint.
Both are coming along nicely and will be at their top in mid- October. SENSE OF OCCASION wore blinkers when he stretched over 1200m in 1.24.70 (38.60).
The Group 1 Doomben Cup winner may need another run or two to reach peak fitness and it will be a bonus if he strikes soft ground.
On the subject of Group 1’s, two winners at that elite level fought out the finish of the opening trial (1000m) at Newcastle last Wednesday.
Sires Produce winner EL DORADO DREAMING finished strongly to defeat Galaxy victor IN HER TIME right on the post after coming from four lengths behind at the 600m.
El Dorado Dreaming departed for Melbourne weekend and will run in Sunday’s Thousand Guineas Prelude at Caulfield.
One of her rivals will be stablemate SMART MELODY. Lock in the Quinella.
In Her Time will run in this Saturday’s mini Everest, the Group 2 Premiere Stakes (1200m) at Randwick and will then climb the $13 million mountain as TAB’s representative on October 13.

Next out of the blocks was the speedy All Stand who led from the jump over 800m and bolted up.
But flashing light was on the fourth placed TACTICAL ADVANTAGE who under a triple strong hold from B.Avdulla.
You can unload on the sprinter next Monday at Kensington track.
Trainer Brett Thompson made the 300km trip from Gulgong to Newcastle with a couple of two-year- olds and the return journey would have felt much easier.
