Stephen Maguire is chasing more success with his young talent at Riverina Paceway on Friday.
Following About To Peak's win in the NSW Breeders Challenge heat at Leeton on Tuesday first up, the Mirrool horseman also has Noble Trick resuming.
Noble Trick was an impressive winner on debut at Wagga in May before two unplaced efforts in higher company.
Maguire is pleased with how he's returned.
"He's pretty good, he's still a little bit bulky but the run will do him good," Maguire said.
"He should go ok."
Noble Trick dominated his rivals on debut, going on to win by 16.1 metres in a mile rate of 1:57.3.
However he disappointed Maguire after being beaten at a $1.65 favourite in the Goulburn Sapling Stakes before a sixth at group three level.
"I thought his Goulburn run was ordinary but the track was very heavy that day and he didn't handle it," he said.
"Then his Menangle run was very good because he over-raced a fair bit so his effort was pretty good.
"I was happy enough with that."
Maguire had always planned to give the son of Bling It On a break after his Menangle run.
However he knows things won't be easy resuming, despite drawing well in barrier three.
"It's a nice draw and that will help big time," he said. "There is a couple there with reasonable form so it is not going to be easy."
Among them is Bully Bourne, who clocked a mile rate of 1:56.0 to win on debut for Rod Woodhouse.
Arma Rolling Stone is another last-start winner for Brad Hewitt.
Maguire is looking to plot a course to the NSW Breeders Challenge heats.
Group one winner Mister Rea looms as the big challenge, but Maguire is hopeful Noble Trick can still stack up well.
"You just can't beat him (Mister Rea) as he's a nice horse but you have to go around in the heats to make you eligible for the Regional series," he said.
The conditions of the series almost caught Maguire short with About To Peak, who was originally the first emergency for Tuesday's race after only racing twice this season.
She was sent out a $1.75 favourite after drawing barrier one.
