Could a star have been born in the Group 2 TAB Light Fingers Stakes (1200m)?
Find out what the jockeys made of their mounts after first fillies feature of the autumn carnival at Royal Randwick.
Josh Parr (Nakeeta Jane): "She's very exciting. For a horse we believe is on a trip to the Vinery and the Oaks to be able to travel fourth on the fence in a 1200m race first-up and run down a couple of tearaways is pretty exciting.
"It's easy to say after the event but I was confident we'd pick them up because each piece of trackwork she's had this preparation the last 100m she's been really strong. That was evident today, she's a beast."

Jay Ford (Madam Rouge): "I thought I was home, she flew out of the lids so we ended up a lot closer than expected. But she travelled well and gave a good kick. I'm surprised I was run down."
Brett Prebble (Pohutakawa): "A lovely filly, she's shown she can be versatile on the firmer ground and stepping up in distance will really be suitable. I was just held up for 50 yards."
Hugh Bowman (El Dorado Dreaming): "It was a good first-up run."
Brenton Avdulla (Sylvia's Mother): "It was a step up in grade and she didn't disgrace herself."
Glyn Schofield (Melt): "She over raced a bit in the early stages and it was a good effort considering."
Adam Hyeronimus (Terminology): "A good run, she probably just needs 1400m now."
Rachel King (Greysful Glamour): "It was a really good run, she's obviously going to be better when she gets up over a mile. She's come back super."
Kerrin McEvoy (Miss Fabulass): "She relaxed well, we obviously got a long way back. Just on the inside when I had to cut back she just dipped a couple of times in the ground where it is cutting out so hopefully she pulls up fine. Further is going to suit her but it is pleasing to see her manners that way.''
Tim Clark (Oohood): "She just peaked late, she ran okay."
Sam Clipperton (Autumn): "A good effort, she's got ability and she's still working it out."
