The Mick Price trained Flying Artie is favourite to claim a second Group 1 when he lines up in Saturday’s Lightning Stakes at Flemington.
Flying Artie is $4.60 favourite with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au. He just shades Coolmore Stakes rival from last spring Star Turn, who is second pick at $4.80.
Sydney four-year-old Spieth is on the third line at $5.00. In an open race, Terravista, Supido and Heatherly round out the runners under double figures, all on $8.50.
“Flying Artie had the better of Star Turn in the Coolmore, but there wasn’t much between them. They’re the star three-year-olds, but some of the older horses can’t be underestimated, especially Spieth, who’s knocking on the door of a Group 1,’’said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
