A BRILLIANT last to first win by PEGGY JEAN at Rosehill’s trials last Friday has ignited the Inglis Classic winner’s autumn ambitions on the eve of her return to racing in this weekend’s Magic Night Stakes.

The Gerald Ryan trained filly was ridden cold at the back of the field by Nash Rawiller in her 900m heat but put paid to her five rivals with ease, going onto score by a length.

PEGGY JEAN will bypass the Golden Slipper in favour of Randwick’s Sires’ Produce and Champagne Stakes on April 12 and 19 respectively.

The daughter of Myboycharlie was one of several in the red and white colours of Triple Crown Syndications that excelled at these heats.

Stablemate DOTHRAKI won his 900m hit-out with his ears pricked to record his second trial win this month.

Triple Crown co-founder Michael Ward informed us that the Gosford Guineas on April 6 will be the starting point for the Mossman son.

Three other Triple Crown horses that we must mention are LONANCEBuffering’s three-quarter-brother BRAZEN MOSS and the high class sprinter HOT SNITZEL who will be going for back to back wins in the Sebring Stakes when we see him produced on Golden Slipper day in two weeks time.
