All-Star option for Alizee
Godolphin trainer James Cummings says a trip to Melbourne is on the cards for Alizee and has not ruled out a crack at the All-Star Mile.
Alizee beat Le Romain by two lengths in the Expressway Stakes on Saturday afternoon, to make it two wins from two in this preparation, and Cummings has now shed further light on where they plan to head to next.
Cummings is delighted with her form and condition and the way Alizee has swept aside everything put before her.
"She's come back so well which is exciting for us," Cummings said. "When you are embarking on a four-year-old campaign with an exceptional three-year-old filly she needs to improve and graduate to tougher opposition.
"I like the idea of running her in the Futurity Stakes (Caulfield, 23rd February) - stepping up to 1400m in three weeks' time and at weight-for-age again."
Cummings also would not rule out a tilt at the $5million All-Star Mile at Flemington on 16th March, but a final decision has yet to be made.
"She's the sort of horse that if she didn't get voted in would be one of the clear top four picks for a wild card entry," Cummings added.
"She finds the mile very comfortable - I've even tried stretching her out to 2000 metres before and she does cope with the training very well.
"I'll stick to the programme we mapped out for her which includes not only the All-Star Mile but also potentially defending her Queen Of The Turf title."
Alizee is 3/1 to win the All-Star Mile on 16th March. The Autumn Sun is 999/1 while Land Of Plenty can be backed at 999/1.
