2011 Champagne Stakes Field, Barriers & Weight

April 20th, 2011

Two-year-old Group 1 racing returns to Royal Randwick this Saturday with the 2011 Champagne Stakes field brimming with a new batch of talent all hitting top form.

There are plenty of wins throughout the field with just four of the 12 entries yet to register their maiden victory.

Helmet is the best of them at the moment having missed the Golden Slipper due to problems in the barriers but he’s now recorded three wins on the trot this year.

He also beat many of these same runners last start with a gutsy run hanging on down the main straight.

On that day he beat Uate but connections are full of confidence he will be able to turn around that result.

It was his first ever loss with career stats of three wins and a second meaning he’s well and truly a contender in this event.

Salade will be having his first run for Bart Cummings since crossing the line eight in the Golden Slipper.

That was just his second start after debuting the week before the Group 1 in the Pago Pago Stakes.

Fast And Sexy is another still looking for Golden Slipper retribution after she was scratched in the barriers before the race even began.

John P Thompson’s Pane In The Glass is another big contender having won three in a row to start her career but just missing out in her next few with tight place finishes.
