Moss Trip primed for Guineas assignment
FRESH off the back of her exhilarating victory in the Group 3 James Carr Stakes at Randwick, Moss Trip is looking to back up in the $400,000 Scone Guineas on Saturday, with co-trainer Peter Snowden saying she continues to improve.
It was a nail-biter at Randwick as Moss Trip got the verdict in a tense photo finish – much to the delight of her many owners, with that win following a superb 5th at Group 1 level in the Surround Stakes, and she faces an equally tough task in this valuable race restricted for Inglis graduates.
A $32,000 purchase from the Inglis Classic Sale, Moss Trip has repaid her sales price and more, and lines up against ten rivals in one of the feature races of Australia’s richest country carnival.
And co-trainer Peter Snowden says the Mossman filly has continued to improve leading into this assignment.
“She worked excellently on Tuesday, and I think she’s shown me to have improved again since the Carr Stakes,” said Snowden.
“She’s in great order and I’m really happy with her. It looks a nice race her at Scone.
“It’s a competitive race but she’s a competitive filly and to my eye she’s looking terrific.”
Brenton Avdulla returns back aboard the three-year-old, with Moss Trip jumping from barrier 10.
