A filly who was unbeaten from three starts before losing her rider during the 2023 Golden Slipper, Learning To Fly was off the scene for 11 months before returning in the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes on February 17.

She had arrived to that return off strong lead-up trials and despite a terrific ride from Chad Schofield, the Annabel Neasham-trained three-year-old had to settle for second, but being first-up off a long spell, it was a definite pass mark.

At $3.50 via PlayUp, Learning To Fly is favourite to win the 2024 Surround Stakes, while last-start Light Fingers winner Kimochi ($6.50) sits on the second line of betting.

With two wins and eight placings from 10 career starts, the daughter of Brave Smash has been very consistent over the journey and that includes six-straight placings over last year's spring campaign.

Roll On High ($7) rounded her first prep with a stakes victory at Flemington, where she defeated Kimochi and Joliestar, and the latter won the Group 1 Thousand Guineas at her next start.

The Victorian just shades Tiz Invincible ($7.50), a Ciaron Maher-trained filly who opened her spring campaign with a winning hat-trick and she returned this prep with a sixth-place finish in the Group 2 Light Fingers.

Surround Stakes Winners

Contested on the same day as the Verry Elleegant Stakes, the Surround Stakes is one of two majors run on the Sydney's first Group 1 card of the calendar year.

This 1400m three-year-old fillies event is named after the champion Surround, who is the only three-year-old filly in history to win the Cox Plate in 1976, with this race first taking place in 1979.

After initially being a Group 3 and from 1986 a group two, the Surround Stakes received Group 1 status in 2018.

Forbidden Love (2021), Hinged (2022) and Sunshine In Paris (2023) have won the last three editions of the Surround Stakes.
