How good is this filly? Won impressively on debut by 5 and is odds on to repeat the dose in race 3 at Canterbury tomorrow.

She could be very good if times mean anything. Her sectionals on a hvy, 33 and change, were phenomenal. By comparison her sectionals were WAY faster than anything else on the day she blitzed them and her overall time and sectionals were also significantly faster than the speedy older horses Puppet Master/All Carisma on a slow last Sat. Looks to have good size about her in the replay.

Only neg is that the rail is back in the true tomorrow which might give leaders an advantage tomorrow?

Sunline wants his credit as if starting a thread about a horse is worth something tangible other then a boost to the ego.

Red - her two siblings have done nothing (one unraced), hence the cheap price (possibly). Perhaps they both had problems and Goree ran out of patience? She actually beat Red Tracer in one of her wins. Bet they are ruing selling her now.

Yes she's a mudlark but she doesn't need to sprint much faster on good going to be competitive at higher levels (see her Newcastle sectionals). Yesterday her times were better than all other races. Pretty decent effort for an inexperienced 2YO who was allowed to coast home.

Breeding buffs - what does her ancestry say about her possible distance limits?

Her pedigree suggest 1200-1400 wet tracker who might get 2000m on a lest testing surface. 

Native Partner is the dam of a colt who started favourite in the 1987 English Derby, Ajdal who failed in that race and less than 2 months later won the July Cup 1200m.

They're aiming high. From RNSW website:

Talented filly Smart Melody is likely to tackle at least the early part of the Princess Series as an early three-year-old. Unbeaten from only two starts and very impressive on both occasions – the latest at Canterbury on Wednesday over 1100m in midweek company – the Smart Missile youngster has concluded her current preparation.

“Because the spring isn’t too far away, she will have a break of only 10 days out at our Ellalong Farm,” Lees said. “I’m not sure at this stage what distance she will handle, but we will look at the first couple of races of the Princess Series against her own sex and take it from there.”

Those are the $200,000 Silver Shadow Stakes and $200,000 Furious Stakes. Both are Group 2 1200m events to be run at Royal Randwick on August 18 and September 1 respectively.

The remaining legs of the Princess Series also are scheduled for Royal Randwick; the $200,000 Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) and $500,000 Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) on September 15 and 29.

To date, only Angst (1993) and Lees’s former champ Samantha Miss (2008) have won all four legs of the series, though a number of fillies have won three legs.

And the format has been changed in recent years since its inception in 1989. It was previously staged at 1200m (Silver Shadow), 1400m (Furious), 1500m (Tea Rose) and 1600m (Flight).

Understandably, Lees is looking forward to testing Smart Melody in stronger company whilst at the same time pointing out it would be silly to start getting too carried away yet.

“She has been able to gallop right from the start, but I’d be lying if I said I thought she would do what she has already,” he said.

Yes. Only small neg is Kmac will want to make sure he doesn't get snookered early from the ace. Fast beginner Americana Magic is drawn outside and Ridicule is no bunny.

Shumookh first up over 1350m is interesting. Wyong suits but thought she'd resume over a shorter distance.
