Group 1 winning mare In Her Time has firmed in the betting on race morning for the 2019 Group 1 $750,000 Black Caviar Lightning (1000m) at Flemington today.
The Kris Lees trained In Her Time has been designated as the market mover at Ladbrokes.com.au after firming in from $6.50 to be the $4.50 second favourite for the Black Caviar Lightning behind Sunlight who heads the market order at $4.
Corey Brown takes the mount again on In Her Time who has drawn the inside barrier and Lees said that the mare is in great order heading into the Group 1 dash down the Flemington straight.
“In Her Time is proven at Group 1 level and is going into the Lightning in great health,” Lees said.
Less will also saddle up the promising three year old Graff who will jump from barrier three with Tommy Berry in the saddle and is also well up in the betting at $6.
In Her Time and Graff are both resuming from a break and while Lees admits that the 1000m of the Black Caviar Lightning might be short of their best distance, he is still expecting a first class performance from the pair.
“Both horses are in really good order. I can’t split them,” Lees said.
“The 1000m may be a bit short for both, but it’s the ideal race to start them off for the autumn.:
“In Her Time is proven at Group 1 level and is going into the Lightning in great health. Graff is a top-class three-year-old who I’m sure will be strong late.”
