She can grab the early lead and hold out or lay down a barnstorming finish. She is hard to look past here. STRETAN ANGEL resumes following performances in stronger company. HEDGED has an impeccable record at this trip TECHFORM’S TOP 5 13 Estriella 100 2 I Am Unstoppable 98 1 Arkansaw Kid 96 3 Stretan Angel 94 6 Hedged 93 SUNLIGHT (Zoustar – Solar Charged) A three-time Group 1 winner, the speedy filly by Zoustar was a once-in-a-lifetime horse for connections. Purchased for $300,000 at the 2017 Gold Coast Magic Millions Yearling Sale, she won the Magic Millions 2YO Classic and was placed in the Golden Slipper as a two-year-old. She claimed the jewel of the three-year-old sprinting crown, beating the boys in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes during the 2012 Melbourne Cup Carnival. She won three of her five starts at Flemington including the time-honoured Newmarket Handicap, becoming the 16th filly to win the race. Her tactical speed, tenacity and consistency amounted to 11 wins and 8 placings from 24 starts and $6,575,950 in prizemoney before being sold for $4.2 million to breeding giant Coolmore Stud.
