SLIPPER STILL IN PATH OF ELIMBARI

Newcastle trainer Kris Lees is still hopeful of running Elimbari in the $3.5-million Golden Slipper on Saturday week, with the filly’s owners to have the final say.

The one-time favourite is 20th in the order of entry, after an unplaced effort in last week’s Group 2 Reisling Stakes.

Elimbari pulled up well, and will be entered for the Listed T-L Baillieu Stakes over 1,400 metres on Slipper day, if she doesn’t secure a start in the world’s richest race for two year olds.
