Away Game has been cleared to line up in the Group One Surround Stakes

Away Game has been cleared to line up in the Group One Surround Stakes after recovering from an injury scare.

The Ciaron Maher and David Eustace-trained filly slipped while she was being unloaded from a float midweek, sustaining an abrasion to her hip.

She was examined by Racing NSW vet Toby Koenig on Thursday and he ruled her fit to race.

Last year’s Magic Millions 2YO Classic winner, Away Game has not missed a place in three starts this preparation, the latest when third to Every Rose in the Light Fingers Stakes.

The runner-up in that race, Never Talk, will also contest the Surround (1400m) and trainer Kris Lees says she will again be suited by a rain-affected track.

He admits the filly has continued to prove a surprise packet and has been thriving on racing.

“She has surprised me nearly every start to be honest. She just keeps improving,” Lees said.

“She is on trial at the trip but she’s fit and well.

“She has been up for a little while so you’re always a bit guarded about how many runs they’ve got in a prep but I’m seeing no signs to suggest she has come to the end of her preparation.”

Jason Collett will partner Never Talk from barrier seven while Glen Boss reunites with Away Game, who has drawn awkwardly in gate 14.
