Dual Group winner Positive Peace will be out to build on her outstanding second-up record in the Wenona Girl Quality at Randwick.
In-form trainer Bjorn Baker will rely on some girl power when he saddles up four horses at the Randwick Guineas meeting, three of them mares.
Baker, who produced a winning double at Warwick Farm midweek, has been satisfied with the progress of all three and he is hopeful Positive Peace can further enhance her excellent second-up strikerate of three wins from four attempts.
The mare assumed her customary leadership role before tiring late when resuming with a fifth to Subpoenaed in the Millie Fox Stakes.
“It was 1300 and she’d only had the one trial so she was entitled to get a bit tired,” Baker said.
“She’s going to improve from there and her work on Tuesday was very good.
“We won’t change anything. She will go straight to the front and I think she is getting back towards her best form.”
Sydney Cup nominee She’s Ideel turned in an eye-catching performance in the same race, flashing home for third, and while she will enjoy a distance rise in the Aspiration Quality, Baker expects her to shine once she gets to a genuine staying journey.
“We’re hoping she is going to be better the further in trip she goes,” he said.
“She will get back, she will be hitting the line hard and it’s a big field so hopefully they go quick enough to give her a chance to finish over the top.”
Missybeel has been mixing her form but should get her favoured firm conditions on Saturday, while comeback galloper Samadoubt, who resumes from a tendon injury in the Canterbury Stakes, will round out Baker’s Randwick team.
