Platinum Angel will carry a top-flight form line into her farewell Queensland appearance in the Glasshouse Handicap

Platinum Angel will carry a top-flight form line into her farewell Queensland appearance in the Glasshouse Handicap at the Sunshine Coast.

Platinum Angel will be having her fourth run for the winter in the Listed Glasshouse Handicap (1400m) on Saturday.

The mare missed out on a start in the Group One Stradbroke Handicap on June 8 but instead went around in the Group Two Dane Ripper Stakes on the same day.

She rattled home to run the winner Invincibella to a neck on the line.

Platinum Angel was one of the few horses in the race to make up ground in the straight after the pace slackened in the middle stages.

Invincibella confirmed the form when she won the Group One Tattersall’s Tiara last Saturday.

Platinum Angel has been with Gold Coast trainer Toby Edmonds for the winter in an effort to pick up a stakes win.

When trained in Victoria by Darren Weir, Platinum Angel was minor placed four times in stakes races and also finished third in the Magic Millions 3 and 4Y0 Classic at Ballarat.

Edmonds believes she gets a real chance to finally win a black-type race in the Glasshouse.

“I don’t necessarily agree with those who thought she was unlucky (in the Dane Ripper). She had her chance but it was her best run of the winter,” Edmonds said.

“The 1400 metres on a big track is perfect on Saturday and she does have good soft track form.

“Don’t forget she was second in the (Group Two) Moreton Cup last year when the race was at the Sunshine Coast.

“So down on the minimum you would be disappointed if she didn’t do something.”

Damien Oliver rode Platinum Angel in the Dane Ripper but Glen Boss will have the ride on Saturday.

“Glen is a pretty fair replacement and he won’t need any tips on how to ride the Sunshine Coast on a wet day,” Edmonds said.

Platinum Angel was a $220,000 buy as a yearling for leading syndicator Brad Spicer and she was passed in at the recent National Broodmare Sale at the Gold Coast.

Edmonds said he was not sure exactly what the future held for Platinum Angel.

“As far as I know she is headed back to Melbourne after this and I suppose they will make a decision then,” Edmonds said.

The trainer was at Eagle Farm on Wednesday settling back in to Queensland racing after going to England to supervise Houtzen’s lead-up to the King’s Stand Stakes at Ascot.

“Things didn’t work out for her but it was a good experience,” he said.

“Now it is back to finding another one good enough for the trip.”

Houtzen slipped at the start of the race won by Blue Point and finished eighth.

She will stay in England to run in the Group Two King George at Goodwood before being mated with Lope De Vega.
