Flight Stakes Tips & Runner-by-Runner Preview


The Flight Stakes is always a must-see race and it has attracted an even betting field on Saturday at Randwick.

It's typically a race that attracts a small field, but the 2021 Flight Stakes boasts a full field of 16 runners, which is exciting to see.

We look at the form of every runner in the Flight Stakes, including Startantes and Four Moves Ahead.

Four Moves Ahead


She returned to form at Randwick last start and she's good enough to kick on with it. Barrier 13 doesn't help, but she has time to find cover over the mile.

Mallory


One of the best-backed runners in the field after hitting the line nicely without much luck last start. She has a big race win coming soon, and it could be in the Flight Stakes.

Swift Witness


A nice winner fresh up and there hasn't been much wrong with her recent efforts. Has good tactical speed, so she goes into the mix at value odds.

She's All Class


Yet to fire from two runs this campaign. James McDonald sticks with her, which is good to see, but we would need to see quick improvement.

Startantes


Entitled to finish sixth last start given the quality of opposition. There is no In the Cogo or Anamoe in this race, so she could get back to her best form on the one-week backup.

Latino Blend


She almost scored an upset earlier this campaign, but we can't have her in this race. Some of the others might have a touch more class.

Hinged


She looked good in Queensland but that form took a dive last time out. We would be surprised if she figured in the finish.

Von Trapp


A winner two back, and despite being only fair last start, there has been steady betting support. Not for us on this occasion.

Chill


There is no consistency with her form this preparation. She showed good ability to score three back, but we don't see much upside to that form.

Yearning


She took five starts to break maiden grades, but she could be one to watch at odds. The stable knows what it's doing, and she was scratched from an easier race for this.

Lovemetender


Scored a fresh up win and has done nothing since. That form would need to see a massive improvement to win at Group 1 level.

Fangirl


The Waller-trained filly has been specked at odds following a quality win last start. Facing a sharp rise in class, but she shouldn't be left out.

Never Been Kissed


Started her career with consecutive wins before meeting her match last start. A similar result is expected.

Stray


Yet to win or place from four starts. Nothing to get excited about and she should much longer in the betting.

Galactic Angel


Better when second last start, but she is another that needs to improve. Odds tell the story.

Left Reeling


Consistent, but not good enough to win at Group 1 level.

Verdict

It's an even field for the 2021 Flight Stakes, but we're going with Startantes to enjoy the drop in class and take out the feature race. She showed good speed last week, and she should find this easier.

Four Moves Ahead is the biggest danger, and we wouldn't leave out Mallory.
