A new training team will saddle up their first runner when Perth mare Lucciola lines-up at Flemington on Saturday.

Husband and wife training team David and Coral Feek only gained their training licence last month and have set up base at Mornington.

David is no stranger to racegoers having spent the past four years in partnership with fellow Mornington trainer David Brideoake.

The Feeks currently have 10 horses in work and will extend their numbers to 25 when new stables are completed.

Lucciola lines up in the Elms Handicap (2000m) and came to Feek off a last start fourth behind Real Love in the Perth Cup (2400m) at Ascot on New Year’s Day.

He said the mare, a daughter of Verglas, was a little light in condition on arrival in Melbourne but had put the weight back on and was ready to step out on Saturday in preparation for richer targets in the next couple of months.

Feek has the Torney Night Cup (2500m) at Moonee Valley on February 20 and the Roy Higgins Quality (2600m) at Flemington on March 7 in mind for the mare.

“She’ll run a bit on the fresh side,” Feek said.

“She’s done one little bit of work and we’re very happy with where she is at.

“I don’t think she has lost any fitness since coming from Perth and we felt the 2000 metres at Flemington on Saturday was a good starting point for her.”

Lucciola had a long campaign before arriving in Melbourne culminating in her fourth in the Perth Cup.

With the yearling sales season in full swing, Feek said he had orders to fill and would be attending the upcoming Sydney and Melbourne sales.

“I didn’t go to New Zealand and missed out on buying anything at the Magic Millions at the Gold Coast,” Feek said.

“I’ve got a few orders to fill which will give us a couple of youngsters and a few older horses to go on with.”

He said the stable would hopefully have their second runner at Mornington next Friday.
