Petits Filous Ready For Flemington Test
Trainer Ciaron Maher has provided an update on brilliant Victorian filly Petits Filous (Street Boss-Excellent Lady, by Exceed and Excel) who will bid to maintain her perfect record in Saturday's Listed Cap D'Antibes Stakes (100m) at Flemington, reports Racing.com. The 3YO daughter of Street Boss took her record to 3 wins from as many starts when saluting in the Gr3 Quezette Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield last start. "She had a little break where she had a bit over a week down at the farm and she's come back really well," Maher said. "We haven't had to do a lot with her, she's had a bit of racing and a few trials before that so it's just about ticking her over." Saturday will be the first time that Petits Filous has raced down the famous Flemington straight, and Maher is hoping to use the race as a guide to her prospects in the Gr1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) in November. "The straight is probably another little test for her again on Saturday," he said. "She was a little bit keen last start so hopefully she can get a bit of cover and switch off a little and then that would give us the confidence to stretch her out to 1200 metres."
