Fuchsia Bandana (2015), Scales Of Justice (2016) and Material Man (2018) are the latest horses to complete the Hyperion Stakes – Strickland Stakes double. Material Man also won that season’s Belmont Sprint completing a rare treble. Material Man also returned to become a dual Strickland Stakes winner on non-successive years with his 2000 success.
Many top Perth horses have won the Strickland Stakes over the years including in recent times Mr Moet (2012), Scales Of Justice (2017) and Galaxy Star (2019).

- To Win: #10 Naughty By Nature ($8 at time of publish)
Rise in class for this Trade Fair mare but she’s in a rich vein of form and is a genuine Belmont track specialist (4:2-1-0). Jason Miller’s gun four-year-old was good with more weight over the mile here last start and is out to extend her form over further. Longest win to date is over 1700m, but she looks to be going good enough for the 2000m and is more than up to this at a nice price.
