Trans-Tasman trainer Michael Moroney is looking forward to the spring with Group One-winning mare Tofane (NZ) (Ocean Park) after her pleasing jump-out on Monday.
“She began nicely and Dwayne (Dunn, jockey) got her to relax before letting her run through the line,” Moroney said.
“She’s come back stronger and is relaxing better in the mornings and Dwayne said that’s how she felt this morning which is exactly what we wanted to hear.
“She’ll have a more serious one in two weeks’ time, but I am very pleased with the way she is progressing.”
The lightly-raced daughter of Ocean Park has won five of her 14 career starts, including a last start victory in the Gr.1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) at Randwick in April.
