The Group 3 W.A. Champion Fillies Stakes is the feature race of the day at Ascot on Saturday afternoon, with a quality field of 12 vying for bragging rights.
The undefeated filly from the Grant & Alana Williams yard Keshi Boom took on Super Smink in the Listed Burgess Queen Stakes at her first metropolitan start, and she gave her windburn at the top of the home straight to record a dominant win.
The daughter of Spirt Of Boom appears to be a very smart filly, and after winning her first three starts, she will seek to remain unbeaten in the Champion Fillies Stakes, at her first attempt at the 1600m.
The Boss Lady made it a hat-trick of wins last start when taking out a 3YO Plate at this track and will have to step up from 1200m to 1600m on Saturday.
The Michael Lane-trained filly has been going through her grades nicely, but she will have to improve again to continue the winning streak when stepping up to the mile and taking on Group company for the first time.
Simon Miller will have two fillies in the feature race of the day, with Generosity coming through the Burgess Queen Stakes and Brave Strike through the Listed Belgravia Stakes.
Both of Miller’s runners are coming through strong form races, but like every runner in the field, they will be attempting the 1600m for the first time.
Ima Wild Girl from the Daniel & Ben Pearce yard is one of two runners that have raced over further than 1400m.
The daughter of Performer finished second behind Ecstasy Of Gold over 1500m at this track in a Class 1 Handicap last start, where the Greg Cave-trained filly had a good margin on the runner-up.
The W.A. Champion Fillies Stakes will be run as the sixth race on the program and is scheduled to jump at 3:07pm AWST.
