Cockram Stakes 2012 Field Announced

August 15th, 2012

A quality field has been announced to contest Saturday’s Group 3 2012 Cockram Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield.

A mixture of returning and in-form mares have been named in the 14-horse field including multiple Group 1 winner Yosei.

The talented mare will be having her first race since the autumn where she was last seen finishing third to More Joyous in the Doncaster Mile.

Two of the in-form horses in the field are Adelaide mare Avoid Lightning and the Darley-owner Glows.

Trained by David Jolly, Avoid Lightning is chasing a fifth consecutive victory and was highly impressive late last month when winning the Listed Lightning Stakes at Morphetville b y 2 1/2 lengths.

Glows has had just one start this campaign but she performed strongly to win the Phonewords Handicap by over a length at Moonee Valley earlier this month.

Other horses nominated for the Cockram Stakes include unbeaten mare Lucky Penny and Peter Moody-trained Le Societe.

The Cockram Stakes is set to be an exciting affair so to back a great value winner head to bookmaker.com.au.
