The Light Fingers Stakes is a level weights race for 3yo fillies that usually attracts more than handy females on their way to the bigger races on offer in coming weeks. Fillies only events like the upcoming Gr3 Millie Fox Stakes at Rosehill or the Gr2 Surround Stakes at Warwick Farm are likely races on the agenda for fillies tackling this event.
Classy types Sea Siren (2012), More Joyous (2011), Gold Edition (2007), Assertive Lass (1997), Skating (1993) and Joanne (1990) have all won this race and more often than not the winner of this race will be an above average type.
Top galloper Dear Demi (3rd in 2013) won the Surround Stakes after running third in this race, before running second in the Gr1 ATC Australian Oaks at Randwick later in the carnival.
Nakeeta Jane (2019) resumed from a spell to win this event for the Mark Newnham stable and recent Light Fingers Stakes winners include Alizee (2018) and Global Glamour (2017).
