The race is truly on amongst the three year-old fillies to be crowned the East Cape Champion at the end of the 2018/19 season.

Although the Cape Town raiders Canukeepitsecret and Star Fighter won two of the Listed races in Port Elizabeth, the EC fillies held their own.

Last Friday the Candice Robinson-trained Star Fighter won the Listed Breeders Guineas, with two top PE fillies Madame Speaker and Klever Kathy second and third.

That was the second time this season that Madame Speaker ran second in a Listed race. Klever Kathy won a Non-Black-Type race this season.

Just Chaos won the Listed Racing Association Stakes back in October but has been quiet since then.

March Music was second then and was third in another Listed race to keep her in the title race.

Her stable mate Mary O’Reilly has a second Listed place but her fifth place in the gr2 Sceptre Stakes also caught the eye.

Madame Speaker, Klever Kathy and Just Chaos look set to take on the boys in the Listed East Cape Guineas on 29 March at Fairview.

The race for that EC fillies title is far from over.
