The bitch has been placed in three of her five starts, including her last two, but the box draw is Honey’s biggest concern.

“She tries hard but she has a bad box and getting into trouble is her biggest worry,” Honey said.

“She has got to get a clear run and that is very hard for young dogs because they go this way and that way.

“So we are hoping from box eight.”

Miss Jamaica was second at Wagga from the same box two starts ago when she was able to get a clear run.

Honey is looking for the same thing on his home track, especially after her littermate Sister Tee fell at Wagga last week.

“You just have to keep putting them in and hope they get some field experience,” he said.

“We have high hopes for both of them later on, when they get a bit older.”
