Talented mare Nadeem Lass has been confirmed in the final field for a minor Flemington sprint race this Saturday and trainer Robbie Griffiths has revealed she will progress to the 2015 Bletchingly Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield should her performance warrant a berth.
Nadeem Lass has posted an impressive three wins and fifteen minors through her 25 start career so far and has found impeccable form through his six most recent appearances at the races; failing to finish outside the first three which has included three black type events.
Confident she is in the right form for a return to the winner’s circle on Saturday; Griffiths told Racing Ahead the 2015 Bletchingly Stakes figures as an ideal final point of call for the daughter of Nadeem this time should her form continue to warrant a position in the likely-to-be talented field.
“She can reel off unbelievable sectionals and that was evident last start when she ran second in the sprint,” Griffiths said.
“The plan was always to go down the path of the Leilani Series for the mares but her sprint form is very good and the straight track doesn’t restrict us as much in terms of barrier draws.
“Around the 1400m circuit as everyone is well aware it can be game over from acceptance time so I’ve elected to keep her to the sprint because she was very effective there last time.
“Heads towards the sprint final there on finals day on July 11th and if she’s holding together well and running well enough it flows into the Bletchingly black type Group 3 two weeks later.
“I’m very happy with the way she’s come through the Flemington run and she ticked over with a nice hit-out yesterday morning.”
Running third in each of the Group 3 Vamos Stakes (1400m) and Group 3 Frances Tressady Stakes (1400m) early this time, Nadeem Lass returned to the winner’s circle in the Bendigo Gold Bracelet (1400m) on March 23rd before again running third in the Group 3 Proud Miss Stakes (1200m) on May 16th.
