Trainer John Ledger suggests improving filly Very Humorous has two significant assets – speed and strength – and both will be used to advantage at Wagga on Friday.

Wangaratta-based Ledger bred the daughter of Happy Giggle who tackles the Bedrock Landscape Supplies Benchmark 50 Hcp (1000m).

The three-year-old is chasing back-to-back wins after a 4-1/4-length romp in a Class 1 event over 1100m at Berrigan on March 19.

“We intend to ride her real positive, let her run,” Ledger said.

“She’s quick out of the gates, the barrier (12) won’t worry her.

“She’s continued to work well, improved since Berrigan.

“I’m confident she’ll be in the mix. She’s in the zone.”

Out of the unraced Danzero mare Our Polly, Very Humorous will carry a cross-over nose band for the first time.

“She’s worked in the gear over the past couple of weeks, it stops her getting her mouth open and not breathing,” Ledger said.

Very Humorous has returned a different filly this preparation.

“Her first preparation was ordinary,” Ledger admitted.

“She wanted to overrace, no balance or coordination, just legs everywhere and was very hot, fizzy, early.

“She’s come back a different horse. To be honest she’s surprised me. Over the past six months she’s found a great deal of extra speed.

“While she’s only around 15 hands, the filly is a lot stronger through the hind quarter and shoulders.

“She’s a tough little machine, no superstar but we’re going to have some fun with her.”

Very Humorous returned from a 14-week break to record an impressive 1000m maiden win at Albury on January 22 then had a seven-week let-up before her 2-1/4-length third to Harry’s Luck and Perrion over 950m at Towong on March 12 before streaking to an all-the-way win at Berrigan.

Ledger admitted to a tactical error at Towong.

“We tried to hold her up. She didn’t finish it off,” Ledger said.

“We let her roll at Berrigan and she never looked like getting beat.”
