Alizee more than ready for Futurity Stakes

A super impressive win in the Group Two Expressway Stakes on Saturday showed Alizee is more than ready for a tilt at the Group One Futurity Stakes at Caulfield on 23rd February and trainer James Cummings has been left delighted.

"I was very flat this morning to wake up to this sort of track. She's never gone that well on soft and she was up against some horses with great wet track credentials," Cummings said. "But she's a serious animal. To see her do that at weight-for-age is a big thrill."

"I'm pretty pumped up about the rest of her preparation. Hopefully getting her back on top of the ground at Caulfield, she will be lethal I think," he said.

Alizee put the Expressway Stakes to bed in style with a two-length victory over Kris Lees' multiple Group One winner Le Romain to become only the second mare since 2002 to win the group 2 feature.

Alizee has been installed as the $3.50 favourite for the Futurity Stakes while Brave Smash, Kementari and Land Of Plenty are all priced $8 at online bookmaker Bet365.
