Exciting filly Gregers will begin her 2013 Spring Racing Carnival campaign in the Aquanas Foods Handicap (1000m) at Moonee Valley on Saturday as she works her way towards a possible start in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield on October 16.

The daughter of Commands had a short but impressive juvenile campaign, winning on debut at Moonee Valley in February before finishing fourth behind Miracles Of Life in the Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m).

The rising three-year-old spent a healthy period in the spelling paddock and Hayes believes that she has returned to work as a better horse.

“You shouldn’t really spruik them until they’ve done it, but it looks like she’s progressed well,” Hayes told Racing Victoria.

“She’s a very promising filly.”

Gregers has been set a tough task by the handicapper with the filly sharing top-weight with Darley Thousand Guineas hope Metastasio.

Hayes will take advantage of the three kilogram claim of in-form apprentice Kayla Nisbet to give Gregers some weight relief.

“It’s a shame she’s got so much weight, but with Kayla Nisbet’s claim it will ease the burden a bit,” Hayes said.

“Kayla’s probably the leading apprentice in Victoria the last six weeks; she hadn’t ridden a city winner six weeks ago.”

The Aquanas Foods Handicap is set to be one of the most competitive races on the exciting Moonee Valley card this Saturday with Gregers and Metastasio set to take on the resuming I’m Too Sexy, Peter Moody-trained Diamond Glow and debutant Maroon Bay.

Hayes is chasing his third win in the Thousand Guineas having previously won the race with Miss Finland (2006) and Irish Lights (2009).
