New Zealand mare Fanatic is chasing a Group Two start in the Adelaide Cup.

Raced by Taranaki breeder Sean Kiernan, the daughter of Shocking will put her credentials on the line in tomorrow’s Listed Roy Higgins Quality (2600m) at Flemington.

Co-trainer Tom Dabernig said the stable had considered taking her straight to Adelaide following her last-start fifth in the Torney Cup at Moonee Valley last month.

“Initially we were contemplating going straight there, but when we saw this race and the smallish field we thought it was worth having a go at.”
