The burden of top weight and an outside barrier have punters shying away from Godolphin mare Flit in the Sheraco Stakes but it hasn’t dented the optimism of her jockey.
He reunites with her for the first time since February and warns punters not to underestimate the James Cummings-trained mare.
“From a facts and figures point of view, as far as winning goes she is probably up against it but from my point of view, I expect her to run a huge race,” Bowman said.
“If I can get the right cart into it, that’s all she needs and there is no substitute for class.”
She drops 200m in distance to 1200m at Rosehill on Saturday but that has been offset by the addition of blinkers.
Bowman has not ridden the colt recently but says Global Quest left an impression.
“He gives you an exceptional feel. With that bit more time and maturity, he just has to learn how to get the job done,” Bowman said.
Global Quest is one of three Chris Waller runners in the Dulcify along with favourite Mo’unga and Overlord.
