Punters were quick to smash a filly to turn the tables on short priced favourite Alizee in the Group 1 Surround Stakes (1400m) this Saturday at Randwick.
The Waterhouse/Bott filly Shumookh did a mighty job last time out in the Light Fingers when going down narrowly to the star Godolphin filly after sitting wide no cover. Draws much better this time and Clark remains on. $6 was the opening price and it was taken quickly, with her priced slashed into $4.40.
Alizee does hold the call and is pretty solid despite drawing an outside gate. She opened at $2.10, touched $2.05, but is now at $2.20 but still remains the best backed runner. Melody Belle ($11-$13) and Frolic ($8-$9.50), both good in the Light Fingers, have no early friends.
