Saturday’s Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) at Royal Randwick has attracted 55 nominations.

The Chris Waller-trained three-year-old filly Hungry Heart is one of the key nominations for this year’s Flight Stakes. Winner of the Group 2 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m) as a two year old, Hungry Heart has raced twice this preparation for a pair of half-length defeats behind Dame Giselle in the Group 2 Furious Stakes (1200m) and Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m).

Dame Giselle is the other big nomination for the Flight Stakes and she chases a fourth straight win for Peter and Paul Snowden. Dame Giselle has won five of her nine starts, including all three since resuming from a spell in the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) on August 22.

The David Payne-trained Montefilia finished fourth in the Tea Rose Stakes and looms as a solid Flight Stakes contender with the mile potentially suiting the daughter of Kermadec. Montefilia has won two races from her five career starts.
