Michael Nolan’s Chakvetadze may well be a contender for the 2010 Millie Fox Stakes having proved herself recently over the middle distance. Her latest win was the EIS Open Handicap (1350m) at Doomben.

Montana Flyer, trained by the renowned Gai Waterhouse, recently came second in the Group 2 Breeders Classic (1200m). The four-year-old beat two fellow 2010 Millie Fox Stakes nominees; Bejewelled and Strawberry Field, to clinch the second spot.
Last year’s winner of the race, Neroli, is back once again to defend her title. However having not had any strong runs recently, the six-year-old has a lot to prove.
