Star.
I knew she was good but this good?

I guess easily rounding up Hellova Street (a very good horse) down here was an indication.

Go Tassie

Who was the guy with the orange colours? I know Bart trained it. But thought that guy had other good horses that might of won group races?

She has had enough. Her trainer has said today is her final race of the campaing, that rules her out she is clearly showing her trainer she has had enough.

The real bad news is that they are targeting the Irrelevant Plate in the Spring and it will be her 4th start of the campaign.

Previous champions used it for its rightful purpose, A lead up to greater races a week or 10 days later.

How about we see how she runs before making conclusions?

He might just be being very conservative to ensure the Spring campaign

The Guineas was her main target, but the plan for this prep was to always get her to the mile providing she got enough votes. They certainly wouldn't run her just for the sake of it, so dont right her off quite just yet.

She is aiming for the Cox Plate and off today deserves to be there and have a go.

Just hope she has an injury free break and Plate win certainly a possibility considering what she beat comfortably off a wide run.

I hope people now realise? That racing is built on press and advertising!!! There is nothing between our best and middle ranked trainers and jockeys!! It happens time and time again!! OPPORTUNITIES are what decides premierships not ability!! I think c Williams is leading rider in vic?? But does he ride any better then Darmanon?? No!! He just talks and smiles a lot and plays Simon the likeable! Darren weir and Robert smerdon were our leading stable a few months ago. Is Waller and grandson of BART any better then Robbie Griffith or Trinder?? The answer I know is? NO. Opportunities

Not sure she could get the 2040 for the Plate.

But how she finishes maybe it's possible.

She was headed by Alizee who had the soft run. Was drawing away at the end. 2000 won’t be any problem at all. Let’s just hope...pray...that she comes back in good order. So many of our top 3yos don’t measure up come Spring. Get the sense this one’s different.

Say it enough times and eventually you'll get your wish and the Cox Plate will lose its reputation, I doubt it but.

I crunched Hawkshot. Costly.

Treated with even more contempt than in the Guineas.

Ouch!

The girls a star. That win was very Winx like in that she just keeps coming and giving. It was a torrid run.
She’s certainly better than Winx at a similar stage.

Glad for the wildcard as they bet $35

Thanks mate.

Unlike some on here (not you) i have no issue admitting when I'm wrong.

I was wrong about her quality and I'm biased,I didn't think she would measure up (due to local formlines....which are stronger than i thought off Hellova St rxcellent run)

Just hope keeps it up and/or improves, as so many fillies go off the boil seemingly for no reason!!
