Misteed impresses again in trial win

TWO-YEAR-OLD filly Misteed looks to be an exciting talent on the evidence of two trial wins, the latest an eye-catching performance in heat 8 at Rosehill on Friday morning, where she quickly put distance back to her rivals in a few strides when taking the trial by 1.3 lengths.

The filly, a $150,000 purchase from the Magic Millions Gold Coast Yearling sale in January, will now be targeted at a first racecourse start in early January by the Snowden team, where she’ll be one to watch if taking her trial form through to the races.

Co-trainer Paul Snowden was impressed with the display, and looked forward to her imminent first start.

“She was very good trialing today,” he said. “We were pleased with what we saw as we were just trying to harness that nervous energy she showed in her first trial and she did that. I was very impressed with the way she handled herself and hit the line late.

“She’s ready to go to the races now and she’ll be hard to beat wherever she steps out.”

Also on a busy morning at Rosehill, evergreen sprinter Dothraki produced another encouraging display in winning heat 4 in the quickest time of the morning over the 900m trip.

The seven-year-old son of Mossman is scheduled for his next start on December 30 in the Listed Christmas Classic over 1200m at Royal Randwick, with the ultimate goal being another crack at the $1 Million Magic Millions Sprint on January 13.
