Grade 1 – Purse $900,000 – 1600 metres – Turf – 2-Year-Old Fillies
The 2022 Hanshin Juvenile Fillies Stakes looks like a fantastic race in prospect, with some very exciting two-year-old fillies fighting it out for this valuable prize at Hanshin Racecourse, and we have a field of 13 going to post.
We kick off with Kita Wing who made her debut in July when finishing 4th in a newcomers event at Fukushima but has since gone on to break the maiden tag two back before taking a huge step forward to win a Grade 3 last time over this distance. She is sure to be prominent on the betting boards.
Moryana who beat another of today’s rivals Doe Eyes last time is now 2-2 after winning a stakes race last time. This is a big step up the class ladder, but this unbeaten filly by Japanese stallion Epiphaniea looks to hold outstanding claims cutting back to 1600 metres (one mile)
Another filly that has already shown great potential is Itinerator and this Kodai Hasagawa-trained filly is one of the most experienced in the field with four runs. She stepped up on her previous efforts when taking a stakes race last time and could be one at bigger odds that could grab a slice underneath.
Rivara is one horse that will be strongly fancied for this race after winning two of her three races, including a Grade 3 last time when she beat another of today’s rivals Bouton D’Or. That form is rock solid and she’ll be many peoples favorite here.
Dura beat Doe Eyes last time in a Grade 3, and in doing so turned round the form of their debut run against each other, and she is clearly going in the right direction with this step up in class looking the right move, while Ravel is another of interest after beating Liberty Island last time.

Such a tough race to call with so many unexposed two-year-olds in the field but the experienced Itinerator could well be one at big odds that makes the frame here.
The main selection is KITA WING who has progressed rapidly since her debut and is already a graded stakes winner.
Of the others, then Ravel and Moryanna should be very competitive and can be fighting it out for a share of this huge purse for the two-year-olds.
