    AN OUNCE of luck.

    That’s all is needed in Saturday night’s Vicbred Super Series Final according to trainer Adam Kelly.

    Kelly will contest one of six Group Ones with Alice Kay, which is among the main chances in the $130,000 decider.

    A feature winning daughter of the event’s sponsor, premier stallion Art Major, Alice Kay is set to begin from the inside of the second row – one of the reasons for an ounce of luck.

    The other is Alice Kay’s rivals include classy stablemates Amelia Rose, Jemstone and Maajida, which are the top three runners in betting markets.

    Prepared by dominating horsewoman Emma Stewart, Amelia Rose is the $2.50 TAB Fixed Odds favourite, followed by Maajida at $3.20 and Jemstone on $3.30.

    Alice Kay is the only other starter under figures at $6, having tightened from her opening quote of $8.

    Amelia Rose has drawn the pole, with Jemstone to come from gate two and Maajida the outside of the back line.

    Alice Kay earned her position in the field by finishing second behind Maajida in their semi last weekend.

    “She is in great shape and ready to run a good race, but will need an ounce of luck on the night,” Kelly said. “I was very happy with her run in the semi.

    “She’s come through it in great order, has been working well and is feeling good within herself.

    “Emma’s three are obviously the trio to beat, plus our draw poses a bit of a problem.

    “At this stage I imagine she will be two-back along the pegs so will need that luck to get a clear run in the home straight.”
