It’s quality over quantity when it comes to the 2020 Flight Stakes (1600m) field, with a small but select field of seven set to lock horns for the $500,000 prize.
Drawing gate 1 is Dame Giselle, who is aiming to become just the third filly to complete the Princess Series hattrick of wins, having already taken out the Silver Shadow Stakes, the Furious Stakes, and the Tea Rose Stakes this preparation.

If she wins Saturday’s Flight Stakes, she will join Angst (1993) and Samantha Miss (2008) as the only fillies to complete the feat.
Her main rival Hungry Heart has drawn barrier 4, with these two runners dominating the market.
