Winning Form – Magic Tips Comment:
Progeny of a former winner in Pomodoro is featured in the years ‘big one’ with the Sean Tarry Trained trained RETURN FLIGHT who wasn’t disgraced in a Grade 1 last time. She failed to peg back a start to finish winner but perhaps things could have been different had she opted to lead. She dictated matters prominently in the Fillies Classic and also the Gerald Rosenberg Stakes against older horses. Her front-running tactics could be utilised effectively in a race where HEAD HONCHO and MADE TO CONQUER look the only dangers with regards to pace in the race. Interestingly, she is not the stable elect but her light weight will assist her to get to near the front of proceedings. A winner of 6 starts from 12 runs, this top 3 year-old filly has produced wonders for her connections having only cost R20 000.
Verdict: Takes on the boys, but in good form and could surprise.
