The Moir Stakes winner, Buffering, from the Robert Heathcote yard, is firm at $8.00, while Terravista $5.50 and Angelic Light $10.00 have admirers.

“Chautauqua is obviously the one to beat, but Srikandi is the horse that is attracting the money,” said’s Will Byrne.

“She wintered in Brisbane and has a great first-up record, so she has to be one of the main chances.”
