I Am A Star returned to racing for a smart stakes victory a fortnight ago and has been confirmed in the 2016 Furious Stakes field by trainer Shane Nichols.

I Am A Star debuted to racing in April for sixth in The Cove Hotel Handicap (1100m) before posting a maiden race win in the Phar Lap Plate (1100m) at Flemington a fortnight later.

Breaking through for a maiden black type win in the Group 3 National Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville on May 21st, the I Am Invincible filly produced a smart turn of foot to take out the Group 3 Quezette Stakes (1100m) on August 13th and should prove extremely tough to beat in the Furious Stakes from barrier 2.

Peter and Paul Snowden will launch a two-pronged attack on the fillies’ feature after confirming both My Country and Quick Feet in the Furious Stakes field.

Yet to finish worse than second through four career starts, My Country debuted for success sin the Berowra Cricket Club Maiden (1000m) before running second in the Agribaba Plate (1100m) on January 16th.

Returning to racing and winning form in the Rose Valley BM64 (1000m) at Kembla Grange on May 28th, the Poet’s Voice filly was last seen charging home to win the Listed Lancaster Stakes (1200m) at Eagle Farm on June 11th.

Quick Feet has steadily built to the task this time in and is undoubtedly offered her best chance of a returned to winning form after drawing into the Furious Stakes field in barrier 1.

Debuting to racing for success in the Gsssa Wines Maiden (1000m) in November, Quick Feet returned in autumn for seventh in the Group 2 Blue Diamond Prelude F (1100m) before running a close second in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) on March 5th.

Having returned to the paddock after failing to fire and ninth in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) a fortnight later, the Northern Meteor filly ran a credible fifth in the Listed The Rosebud (1200m) first-up this time before boxing on for third in the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) a fortnight ago.

Chris Waller will also be offered several chances of success after confirming all of Foxplay (barrier 6), Awoke (barrier 13) and Overstep (barrier 14) in the 2016 Furious Stakes field.
