16/01/02 Choisir Aims to Go One Better in Classic
The Paul Perry trained youngster Choisir, who was an unlucky runner-up to Athelnoth last Saturday, looks set to start one of the favourites in the $610,000 Inglis Classic in Sydney on Saturday.

A $55,000 purchase last year, Choisir a son of Danehill Dancer was away sluggishly last weekend and then the rider had difficulties after his saddle shifted during the race.

The colt is currently quoted at 2/1, just behind the Lee Freedman trained unbeaten youngster Pillaging who is marked a 6/4 favourite in a market from Colin Tidy.

Mukareena, the horse who boxed on strongly to finish a game second to Pillaging at big odds last start, is the third pick according to Tidy at 8/1.

The Gai Waterhouse trained Fairy Brightia, who chased home a smart one last time out is marked at 12/1.

Meanwhile, Maryann Thexton unveiled a last minute Classic contender at Caloundra in Queensland on Sunday. Her gelding Planagram, a $37,500 son of Spartacus, thrashed his rivals by over five lengths. He is due to arrive in Sydney later this week and is assured of a start.
