Trainer Mark Kavanagh says he got a bargain with Celebrity Girl who cost $500,000 and is unbeaten after two starts.

Kavanagh is aiming the daughter of Starcraft at the Group One Thousand Guineas (1600m) and believes she may even get the Oaks trip of 2500m after she coasted home to a 2-1/2-length win in Saturday’s Listed Cap D’Antibes Stakes (1100m) at Flemington.

“She is pretty much above average and I’m very pleased with that,” Kavanagh said after her easy win over Star Salute and Platelet.

“At this stage you sort of think that (the Thousand Guineas) might be a little brave because she is little bit brilliant but she does settle well.”

Celebrity Girl was put away for the spring after her only other start in April when she won over 1000 metres at Sandown.

Kavanagh said he liked Celebrity Girl as a yearling and she continues to impress him.

“She was a pretty good sort,” Kavanagh said.

“She had a massive girth and a really nice walk and just had style written all over her.

“We thought she would run and I reckon $800,000 would be cheap for her right now.

“It is the right time of the year to have a filly like this and she has always shown us plenty.

“She went to sleep today and then clicked up.”

Jockey Michael Rodd said Celebrity Girl was a big, strong filly and would only get better with experience.

“Physically she’s there but mentally she has to switch on a bit,” Rodd said.

“She’s still having a good look around and doesn’t know how to let down properly.”
