The Group One Coolmore Stud Stakes will be the next target for unbeaten filly Petits Filous.
Petits Filous made it four wins from as many starts with another impressive display in Saturday’s Listed Cap D’Antibes Stakes (1100m) against her own age and sex at Flemington on Saturday.
It was her first test down the straight at Flemington and trainer Ciaron Maher has confirmed the Coolmore Stud Stakes is the race they are looking at for the classy filly’s next start.
Although the race is almost seven weeks away on October 31, Maher is not concerned about the time between races.
“I think we’ll go to the Coolmore,” Maher told radio station RSN.
“She had a month between runs (on Saturday) and she looked fine and pulled up fine.
“I think it’s about six weeks to the Coolmore so we’ll send her to the farm for a couple of weeks and just freshen her up and she might have a soft jump-out or something in between.”
Petits Filous will have to take on the colts and geldings in the Coolmore but Maher has been encouraged by the times she has run in all her wins.
“On times, she looks like she’ll measure up,” he said.
Petits Filous’ opposition in the Coolmore is expected to include Golden Rose winner Exosphere and Danehill Stakes winner Kinglike.
