Doncaster Mile the target for Alizee

Glyn Schofield on Alizee wins the Flight Stakes

Trainer James Cummings has earmarked the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) as the main target for Alizee as she builds toward her autumn campaign. 

The three-year-old daughter of Sepoy claimed the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) at Randwick during the spring before heading to Melbourne where she finished 3rd in the Thousand Guineas (1600m).

Alizee impressed at the Rosehill barrier trials on Monday, where she worked home strongly into 2nd place to finish three lengths from Redzel while cruising past star mare Winx in the process.
Cummings gave his thoughts on the trial in a stable update while also giving insight to her likely autumn campaign path. 

"I particularly liked the fact she relaxed beautifully in the middle stages of her trial, but once she hooked into the clear she kept surging to the line and would have shown a really beautiful turn of foot sectionally between the two and the furlong,” he said. 
“Those team of horses had won over $30 million in prizemoney between themselves. 
"My feeling is that she looks ready to go - she pulled up well from the trial within herself and you'll see her in the Light Fingers, Group 2, set weights, on Saturday week at Randwick.
"And the beauty of her preparation is she can go a few ways, but I would expect her to be certainly nominated in the Doncaster, and at this stage I would love to see that be her grand final this preparation, provided her performances in the lead-up warrant that sort of race."

While three-year-olds have a great record in the Doncaster Mile with eight winners in the past 19 renewals saluting, Alizee would join an elite group of fillies to achieve the feat.

Sunline (1999) and Skating (1993) are the most recent three-year-old fillies to score in the rich feature.
