Australian Racing: Blinkers a key Move for Sargent's filly

Four Moves Ahead returned to the winner's enclosure with victory in the Tea Rose Stakes during the spring, and shapes as a challenger to Espiona and Fan Girl in the Light Fingers Stakes at Randwick on Saturday.

The John Sargent-trained Snitzel filly is a 18/1 chance to topple the favourites this weekend.

The three-year-old will again be ridden by Nash Rawiller, who has steered the filly in each of her last three starts, with the pair having to navigate the race from barrier 14.

Rawiller explains Four Moves Ahead plan

The jockey believes the filly, who finished fourth in the Golden Slipper, will benefit from blinkers being applied for the first time for the 1200-metre Group 2 race.

"A set of blinkers on, I think, just gives us that little edge that will help her in a race that is a damn hard race," Rawiller told Sky Sports Radio.

"That just gives us, hopefully, a length that we may have lacked against some of these really good horses and a wet track brings us right into the race.

"Physically, she has definitely strengthened up. She's not a big, strong mare but she's an athlete. She has really impressed me with what she has shown in her trials and I was able to ride her yesterday (Tuesday) morning at the track and she gave me a terrific feel."
