$250,000 Inglis Premier Field

Friday, 3rd February 2017

A final field of 10 runners has been declared for tomorrow's $250,000 Listed (restricted) Inglis Premier (1200m) at Caulfield. The Inglis Premier is restricted to horses purchased at the 2016 Melbourne Premier Yearling Sale and VOBIS Gold Yearling Sale. This will be the 18th edition of the Inglis Premier, a race in which prize money is taken into account in the ballot conditions for the Gr1 Blue Diamond Stakes. The race has proven to be a launching pad for future stars, with previous winners Snitzerland and Twilight Royale progressing to win Group One races during their careers. The two undefeated Snitzel colts Jukebox (Ciaron Maher) and Perast (Paul Perry) will be out to keep their perfect race record intact on Saturday, while four of the runners in this year's race are on debut. Jukebox is the $2.35 favourite for the race ahead of Perast at $3.40 and Coppergate (Helmet) at $9.50. The final Inglis Premier field is:

1. JUKEBOX (Ciaron Maher-Craig Williams) 57kg (5)

2. PERAST (Paul Perry-Stephen Baster) 57kg (3)

3. BEAVERBROOK (Robbie Griffiths-Ben Thompson) 57kg (7)
