Sheezallmine (NZ) (Super Easy) will be vying to add another Group Three victory to her resume when she lines-up in the Red Badge Spring Sprint (1400m) at Hastings on Saturday.
The Daniel Miller-trained mare finished fifth first-up under 62kg at Hastings last start and Miller said She will appreciate the 9kg weight relief this weekend.
“It’s (53kg) going to be a big help after having to lug around 62 kilos last start,” Miller said.
“I thought she went a good race, she was held up for quite a while at the top of the straight and she was quite strong through the line and after the line.
“I am really surprised with how that first run has brought her on. She has really got that spring back in her step now and it looks like she is ready to go.”
Miller believes she will also appreciate the step-up to 1400m and he has been pleased with her work in the lead-up to the race.
“I think stepping up to 1400m, she is probably looking for that now,” he said. “Her work has been good, so I expect her to go a nice race.”
Sheezallmine’s spring plans are still up in the air, but Miller said he will get a better idea after Saturday’s assignment.
“I am playing it by ear at the moment to see whether she will get up over 1400m and possibly further,” he said.
“A lot of it is going to depend on how she goes in Saturday.”
