She pulled up well from her first start back from a long lay off.

If she stays healthy - will be winning again at the top level.  She has an incredible motor.

Off to Brisbane if she runs up to the mark.

Bit of rain gives her another few lengths!

Should have won, they all had their pants pulled down thinking the Cerchi horse would just fold up and come back to them and no one took the race up to him.

There was a 200/1 shot sitting outside lead offering protection, how could anyone put the pressure on then?

Between the 1200-1400 they ran a 12.41 and between the 1000-1200 they ran a 12.56 yet Real Love and Tom Melborne were 4-5L off the lead with riders unmoved!!

Dylanson dropped off at the 700m mark rounding the turn and even from 800-1000 they got away with a 12.23 then the leader dropped a 11.89 on them from the 800-600 and the race was over as no one was up and moving and they were all caught flat footed.

Horses like Tom Melbourne and Real Love as well Amelie's Star need to be out and rolling not asked to peel off a sub 11 from a standing start

I was expecting to her next run to be at 2000m+. Apart from the prizemoney tomorrow, I can't see anything good about tomorrow's 1600m race for Amelie's Star.

They want to run in the 2000m Centaurea in 2 weeks, this was the only suitable lead up apparently

I think she'll win in spite of it being well short of her best distance.

I can understand anyone waiting until she gets to 2000m+ next start, but she won't be $4.00. Closer to odds on.

Surely the Centaurea Stks (a $125k listed race) is not the main aim for this campaign?

I'm hoping they go to Qld for the Brisbane Cup. Winning that (or any other 2400m+ black type race) would at least re-qualify her for the Spring Cups.

Didn't say it was the main aim, but that's the race they want to run in next.
Will be going to QLD only if she wins either today or next start

If that's the case, then won't be starting in Doomben Cup on same day.

Maybe if wins easily then goes to Doomben Cup, otherwise Centaurea?

Might be better option to miss Doomben Cup, then pick up easy Centaurea as an easy kill, before going to Bris for Eagle Farm Cup?

Could be going to Doomben. Basically, Weiry doesn't want to take her up there if she can't be competitive . A win today would pay for the trip away, has to earn the trip
