Debut run. She is a highly-strung filly who shows good speed in her work. This will be an educational run for her, and she is likely to be green in running. This outing will bring her on for future races.

Trainer: Clinton Binda
Jockey: Calvin Habib
Wgt: 57.5kg
Draw: 10 (11 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 20/1

She was disappointing in her last start after producing an encouraging debut effort. The stable has opted to run her over 1000m once again. Calvin Habib is booked to ride, and we are hoping to see improvement.

Winning Form Comment: Had excuses in both starts. Can improve.

Race 5 – 14:55
2000m – Racehorse Owners Association MR 85 Divided Handicap (F & M)

4 – Poorlittlerichgirl
Breeding: Dynasty – Doris Duke by Trippi (USA)
Trainer: Brett Crawford
Jockey: Piere Strydom
Wgt: 59.5kg
Draw: 1 (9 Runners)
Predicted Betting: 5/1

She had no luck in her last start as she raced wide around the turn and understandably lacked a finish in the straight. She is drawn in pole position with Piere Strydom in the saddle. The daughter of Dynasty is doing well at home, and she is expected to be competitive.

Winning Form Comment: Best MR:84. Got caught deep in latest. Has cracked pole and chance on previous form.
