Lightly raced filly Meadow has taken the first step towards a double Oaks campaign with her impressive win at Doomben.

It may have only been a midweek maiden but Meadow ($4.60) could not have been more impressive, beating In Kobe ($6) by 2-1/4 lengths over 1630m.

Trainer Desleigh Forster has a big opinion of Meadow who was bought for $180,000 to be trained by Peter Moody in Melbourne.

However, Meadow was sent north as an unraced two-year-old and Forster has taken her time with the filly.

“I gave her plenty of time to grow and today was the first time in her three starts she has been on a dry track,” Forster said.

“She is by top sire Redoute’s Choice out of an Encosta de Lago mare so I really think she will get a distance. I can hardly wait to get her out past 2000 metres.”

Forster said her long term plan was to tackle the Queensland Oaks but the Australian Oaks in the autumn would also be on the cards.

Meadow is owned by well known Queensland breeder Basil Nolan and his family and he is keen to run the filly over 1600m in two weeks.

“We will have a talk about it in the morning. I am just as keen to give her some time and spell her,” Forster said.

Trainer Robert Heathcote’s also has big opinion of three-year-old Pinch Mountain ($10) who won a 1200m-maiden at the meeting in a slick 1.09.8 seconds.

“This is a smart horse. They don’t get under 1.10 for a maiden too often let alone from the outside barrier,” Heathcote said.

Pinch Mountain, who is owned by the Duncan family from the Snowy Mountains region, gave comeback jockey Larry Cassidy a winning double after he scored earlier on Backslapper.
