The Leon Corstens-trained Mosheen lived up to her brilliant barrier trial form when she made a winning debut at Caulfield on Saturday.

The Fastnet Rock filly had won an 800m Cranbourne trial in 46.5 seconds which was the fastest of the three two-year-old trials on March 5.

Well ridden by Danny Nikolic, Mosheen ($2.80) settled third in the small field of five and rounded up first starter Sharnee Rose ($13) to score by a long head with City Of Song ($2.35 fav) a length away third.

“She knuckled down over the last 100 metres and she went to the line well,” Corstens, who was noncommittal about her immediate future, said.

“I think she’ll be a better filly next time in anyway. She’s bred to get a bit of ground.

“She’s always given a nice feel.”

Corstens explained the relatively late kick-off to Mosheen’s career saying that she went shin-sore some time back after trialling at Werribee.

“I was that disappointed we couldn’t go on with her at that stage but she trialled very, very well at Cranbourne,” Corstens said.

“Sebastian Murphy rode her and said ‘this is brilliant’.”

A $250,000 purchase at the Australian Easter Yearling Sale last year, Mosheen is raced by Corstens’ backer Phil Sly.

She is out of the Stravinsky mare Sumehra, a Canterbury 1580m maiden winner who is a half-sister to Lucky Owners, champion miler in Hong Kong in 2004, and Listed winner Miss Power Bird.

Now a successful sire, Lucky Owners’ eight wins included the Hong Kong Derby and the Hong Kong Mile.

Corstens believed he pulled the right rein by scratching Mosheen from the St Albans Plate (1000m) at Moonee Valley on Friday night which was won impressively by the smart colt Golden Archer.

Nikolic said the filly always had the race under control.

“They didn’t go that hard but they really let rip around the turn,” he said.

“She’s a real professional, she does everything right.”
