The nominations for 2012 Frederick Clissold Stakes aka the 2012 Southern Cross Stakes are now live with a group of 13 horses on track for the 1200m sprint.
The race is rated at Group 3 level and gives a chance for those sitting just below the top class runners to claim some black type prize money.
With the likes of Black Caviar dominating the majors the Southern Cross Stakes is hugely important for that second tier of competition.
It’s also being used by some horses suited by longer trips to get their foot in the door to kick off their preparations.
Some of the more interesting runners in the Southern Cross Stakes nominations include Secret Admirer for Grahame Begg and the flying Neeson for Jo Pride.
Triple Elegance is there for Chris Waller and No Evidence Needed for John Thompson.
In terms of those horses looking for a little further Yosei is one for Stuart Webb as well as the new acquisition in the Chris Waller camp Firebolt.
Firebolt ran with success during the Brisbane Winter Carnival and he will be trying to replicate that success at Rosehill this weekend.
It’s an intriguing little race this one and something a few punters will be tempted to have a nibble on no doubt.
