Gimcrack Stakes placegetter Ticket To Ride is showing all the right signs on the training track

Gimcrack Stakes placegetter Ticket To Ride is showing all the right signs on the training track but co-trainer Michael Freedman knows her ultimate test will come on race day.

The filly resumes in Saturday’s $2 million Inglis Millennium in 14 Days Handicap (1000m) at Randwick, her first start since closing for third behind Every Rose in the Gimcrack.

Freedman says Ticket To Ride has enjoyed a faultless build-up but her looming clash with blue blooded colts Mount Fuji, Rulership and Mission River will give him a better barometer of her credentials.

“Obviously, she hasn’t been to the track for a few months now so it will be interesting to see where she lines up against a few others but I’m pretty happy with her,” Freedman said.

“Since October last year there has been a lot of nice two-year-olds step out, both fillies and colts, so tomorrow will hopefully give us a guide on where she sits.”

Tommy Berry rode Ticket To Ride at her only start but had already committed to the Snowden-trained Mount Fuji for Saturday’s race.

Brenton Avdulla has picked up the mount on the Freedman filly and while Berry is excited to partner $2.8 million colt Mount Fuji, he regards Ticket To Ride highly.

“There is a good chance I might have stuck with Ticket To Ride because I think she is a very smart filly,” Berry said.

“She gave me a good feel on debut and her trial was nice.

“She, for mine, is the one to beat because I know what she’s got there.”

Freedman, who trains alongside brother Richard, will saddle up two runners in the PFD Food Services Handicap (2000m), English import Mushaireb and Roman Son.

A last-start winner over 1550 metres on the Kensington track, Mushaireb gets the chance to prove he can extend to a middle distance.

“It will be a good test to get him up around that distance and we’re hoping the tempo of that sort of race might be better than if we kept him to a mile,” Freedman said.

The brothers also have Pumpkin Pie in the City Tatts Bushfire Appeal Handicap (1600m) with the mare bidding to break a winning drought stretching almost two years.
