6 – Travelling Light
Breeding: Gimmethegreenlight (AUS) – Tina’s Trip by Trippi (USA)
Trainer: Garth Puller
Jockey: Luke Ferraris
Draw: 6 (7 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 10/1
She has her first run back after a spell on the farm and she appears to have freshened up nicely. Coming in to this race on the back of two grass gallops, the stable feel she has found her earlier speed and as such have opted to go into this 1000m sprint for her first run back. She is moving better than ever and should be a big runner here.
Winning Form Comment: Rested 19 wks. Best MR:99. Returns from a break. Takes on males and can improve if fit and well.

1 – East Coast Star
Breeding: Visionaire (USA) – Salita by Western Winter (USA)
Trainer: Peter Muscutt
Jockey: Donovan Dillon
Draw: 1 (14 Runners)Predicted Betting: 5/1
She has been a bit disappointing after failing to convert on her first few promising outings. With that said, she returns to the Polytrack where she perhaps has a preference. From draw 1, she gets the cheek pieces fitted and she will also race with the tongue tie. If all goes to plan, she should be a big factor at the business end.
Winning Form Comment: Best MR:73. Runner-up in both attempts on poly. Gets the cheek pieces fitted. Drawn best of all.

Now that he is having a run on Monday, we will have to see how he takes the run but at this stage he will be a doubtful starter here.
Winning Form Comment: Best MR:82. *Carded To Race – 01.03.2021.
