Bookmakers aren't having any early doubts on the Smart Melody running out a strong mile with the unbeaten filly having been wound in to $2.80 after drawing barrier 2 for the $500,000 Schweppes Thousand Guineas.

She will be looking to buck a recent trend of failed Tranquil Star (prelude)/Thousand Guineas double attempts with Irish Lights back in 2009 the last filly to complete that winning double. The two other place getter's in the prelude Thrillster ($6) and El Dorado Dreaming ($7) round out two of the other fillies under double figure quotes along with the Flight Stakes runner-up Fiesta ($9).
