Godolphin runner Ghisoni is yet to taste anything but success through her short racing career so far and remains outright $3.60 favourites in 2016 Light Fingers Stakes betting markets with leading online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.

Trialling well in the lead-up to her competitive debut, Ghisoni delivered a notable field a comfortable two length defeat in the TAB Rewards Maiden Plate (1200m) on November 11th; progressing to success in the Watagan Grange BM73 (1200m) on November 28th.

Allocated the ideal barrier 2, Ghisoni has been confirmed to be partnered by in-form hoop James McDonald in the 2016 Light Fingers Stakes.

Peter and Paul Snowden have been understandably pleased with the form displayed by Kangarilla Joy this time, who currently features as sole occupant of the second line of betting at 2016 Light Fingers Stakes odds of $3.80 for success.

Debuting to racing in spring for a comfortable win in a Warwick Farm minor over 1100m on August 5th but failed to beat a single runner home in the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) and was returned to the paddock.

Trialling well in the lead up to her racing return this time, the Lonhro filly won the Schweppes BM68 (1100m) on January 2nd before repeating the dose in the TAB Rewards BM78 (1100m) on Australia Day.

Hugh Bowman is sure to give Kangarilla Joy a gem of a ride, who will leave from barrier 6 in the Light Fingers Stakes.

Group 1 winner Stay With Me has so-far received the greatest market share of bets for success in the Light Fingers Stakes; cutting in from a quote of $4.40 to register as outright $4 third-favourite and clear market mover.

Stay With Me immediately stamped herself as a filly to follow upon debut last autumn; running second to Pasadena Girl in the Listed Talindert Stakes (1100m) and fifth in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) before returning to the paddock.

Posting a maiden race win in a Pakenham minor over 1200m on August 20th, the Street Cry filly made a successful transition to black type racing in taking out the Listed Atlantic Jewel Stakes (1200m) but failed to handle the last pace when sixth in the Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m).

Responding in the best way possible in taking out the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) on October 10th, Stay With Me has not been seen at the races since running a credible sixth amongst open company in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) on Derby Day.
