Which Horse Will Win The WA Champion Fillies Stakes

The best way to pick who will win the WA Champion Fillies Stakes is to take into account the form, assess the barriers, consider the weight the horse will carry, among other factors.

Additional factors to take into considerations are as follows:

  • Milers – If a three year old has run enough races, you should already be able to tell if it does well at a mile or not. Look for fillies who can do it in 1:37 or quicker.
  • Line Up – Check how your filly has done in similar lineups before. Is she jumping from the same barrier that she made good time with before?
