RACING Fancied filly
SHE had no luck at yesterday’s barrier draw, but Dream Kisses still looks the horse to beat in Saturday’s Townsville RSL Two- Year- Old Classic ( 1200m) at Cluden Park.
The filly has been in impressive form for former Townsville trainer Steven O’Dea in Brisbane and leads a strong field for North Queensland’s richest two- year- old race.
Dream Kisses has placed in five of her eight careers starts for two wins, including her last start at Doomben on June 24 in the AQUIS FARM Crystal Slipper 2YO Fillies Plate ( 1200m).
She had to come from a wide gate on that day which is a good sign after drawing barrier 14 for Saturday’s feature race at Cluden Park, which marks the start of the Townsville Winter Carnival.
Leading local hope Golden Guardian is ideally drawn in barrier one as he chases a third straight victory on his home track for Black River trainer Michelle Petrofski.
Leading Atherton trainer Roy Chillemi won last year’s race and will saddle up another strong contender with Grey Missile coming from barrier four.
