SMALL FIELD ASSEMBLES FOR CHAMPAGNE STAKES

Earlier in the week trainer Gary Portelli claimed he couldn’t see how any other runner would beat boom two year old Fireburn and it appears the horse racing industry has agreed with only a small field attempt to stop the filly’s triple crown challenge

Fireburn faces small field in the Champage

There will be only five challengers attempting to stop Fireburn on Saturday in the Champagne Stakes over 1600m at Randwick Racecourse and stop the filly claiming the elusive triple crown for two year olds.

Fireburn registered emphatic wins in the Group 1 Golden Slipper and the Sires’ Produce Stakes last weekend and it appears those performances have scared off the opposition for this Saturdays final Group1 for two year olds in the Autumn.


The Gary Portelli-trained Fireburn is looking to become the first filly since Burst in 1992 to win the Triple Crown and first juvenile since gun colt Pierro (2012) to win all three juvenile majors.

Jockey Brenton Avdulla has partnered Fireburn in her last two starts and wins at Group 1 level and will continue to partner Portelli’s stable star in the 1600m feature in the Champagne Stakes on Saturday. 

After the final field was confirmed and Fireburn was confirmed to jump from barrier 2 she was crunched from $1.70 opening price on Sunday into a red-hot $1.55 favourite for the Moet and Chandon Champagne Stakes.

The main danger to the triple crown attempt once again sits with Anthony Cummings trained She’s Extreme who appears to be the main challenger and currently sits as a $3.90 chance on the second line of betting. 

Dundeel colt Let’srollthedice was third in the Sires’ and drew barrier 4 on Saturday while Counttheheadlights  was fifth on that occasion and drew the fifth gate and both will also look to turn the tables in the Champagne.
