Verry Elleegant Information

If this track was heavy, she’d be a clear top pick. She’s the proven WFA big time performer and IMO, she’s a champion. Tried her heart out in the Cox Plate and as well as Lane rode, J Mac jumping on is a big, big tick and she has shown she is capable on dry ground. I wouldn’t be surprised if she won and cements her place as an all time great.

Short Summary: Champion mare who can confirm all time great status with a win here.

George Main Stakes (1600m), September 18 2021, Randwick, Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface

She was helped by the bias, make no mistake of that, but I think credit has to go towards her as well. She was a month between runs and had to change course a couple of times, so it wasn’t as if it was on a platter for her. I thought the win had merit and the form since has been solid.

Turnbull Stakes (2000m), October 2 2021, Flemington, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface

600m out, it was no betting. She was just going to win and win comfortably. But as soon as Lane went for her, she found little and went back to her old ways of wanting to lay in under pressure, throwing away any chance of a win behind a superstar.

Cox Plate (2040m), October 23 2021, Moonee Valley, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface

I thought it was a super ride from Lane. He tracked up with the mare beautifully and on the turn, she looked like she was going to win. But she just flattened out when let down and whacked away for third, looking like a mare that wants more ground.
