Sorrento Looks a Tight Affair as Seven Fillies Look to Take Next Step

Sorrento Stakes – Grade II




8/12/2015 18:20 8/10/2015 3:00 DMR Race #5 6 1/2f Dirt Graded Stake


Purse $200.000  For Fillies Two Years Old.


1 Level Moon, trained by Asgar

A daughter of the successful sire Hollywood Moon she has notched two wins from three starts included a gutsy effort in the My Dear Stakes last time out. She has not looked like giving up in both her wins so I don’t think this extra trip will scare her and you have to like the fact that both her wins came from the one box and she has got that again today.

2 Technomin, trained by The Sidley Stud

Never got on terms with level Moon in the MY Dear finishing three lengths back in seventh but has since won the listed TTA Sales Futurity in the same time that Level Moon won the MY Dear. Accepting that HRP is a bit like playing bingo as far as form goes at the moment I still can’t see why she should turn the tables on level Moon unless this trip suits her better.

3 Red Rose Of Texas, trained by Joseph Racing

Also a winner of two from three she has worked like a stakes winner even though this is her first effort at this grade. She just scarped home in an overnight last time so I am not overly confident of this step up in grade especially as she is still pretty small and may still have some maturing to do.

4 Dogs Money Maka, trained by Teamf Racing

A good maiden winner at LA last time out but I don’t think she is quite up to one or two of these classier types.

5 Sneaky Fantastique, trained by Yahudi Stables

A game winner of The Cassidy last time up after a good debut run she is certainly well up the ratings as far as this race goes. She will be strong at the end of this trip and comes out of a box that will give her a few choices as far as running style goes. Her mile work last up was pretty good and I am sure she is carrying some stable confidence.

6 Due Know How, trained by Chili King Stables

Third in the MY Dear after a big win in an SA maiden she certainly has a chance if this extra trip suits. The stable is in tip top form at the moment but again on form I can’t see her beating Level Moon but you must not forget the HRP bingo effect these days so don’t write her off.

7 End Of Secrets, trained by Serenity Stables

Unbeaten in two this one is one of the fastest workers in the field and must be respected. The outside gate will be a huge disadvantage especially if the outside speed boost catapults her to the lead but if she can get a position I can see her powering through late on.



Well these events are tough at the best of times but with stakes races resembling bingo at the moment I cannot make a confident pick. I will however go for Sneaky Fantastique to beat Level Moon and End Of Secrets.
