Golden Slipper contender Alpine Edge will be matched with stablemate Vanna Girl in an important trackwork hitout this week.
The Toby and Trent Edmonds stable plan to start Alpine Edge and Vanna Girl in a 900 metre jump out on the course proper at the Gold Coast on Tuesday.
Alpine Edge will race in blinkers for the first time when he returns from a let up in the Group Two Todman Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on March 6 with Glen Boss booked to ride.
“The jump out will be one of his main hitouts before the Todman,” co-trainer Trent Edmonds said.
The son of Better Than Ready suffered his first defeat when he finished runner-up to Shaquero in the Magic Millions Classic at the Gold Coast on January 16.
