San Isidore trainer Julie French is hoping the confidence picked up from two wins at Temora will translate to further success for Sunlit Grace.
After finishing down the track in her first two runs at Wagga, Sunlit Grace discovered that winning feeling and is now looking to make it a hat-trick on home soil.
“She’s gained a lot of confidence since those wins at Temora,” French said.
“I don’t think she had any confidence at all (at Wagga) but her last start at Temora she won by five lengths and looked liked a different bitch.
“I think she should go good.”
Sunlit Grace scored a narrow win over Armand Bale two starts back before both won again last time out.
After drawing one French believes he poses the biggest threat.
Sunlit Grace has drawn box six in the fourt heat of the Labrokes Odds Boost 4/5th Grade (320m) but French believes having the five box vacant will be a big help although she is definitely wary of the Geoffrey Collins runner.
“When she won her maiden she was up against Geoff Collins’ dog and he was second to her and he won last week,” she said.
“It’s a good dog.”
Littermate Sunlit Quealy is also looking to add to her good form.
She was a winner at Temora two starts ago before a third last time out.
French thought she looked the win again before tiring late.
“Last start she was in front by two lengths but I think she cramped up and ended up running third,” she said.
“She still tried hard and went well.”
