The Clarry Conners trained Look To The Stars was sent out at the good odds of $17 after being well beaten last start when tenth to Blueberry Hill in the Group 2 $175,000 Bollinger Champagne Classic (1200m) at Doomben on May 9.

Look To The Stars responded to the riding of Luke Tarrant in the straight and was able to score a clear cut win over the Liam Birchley trained Blueberry Hill ($4.40 favourite) with one of the outsiders of the field Cylinder Beach ($101) also running on late for third.

The highly fancied Wicked Intent ($4.60) jumped well from a wide gate and Damian Browne was content to sit off the leader Pepperano in the run to the first turn but when heads were turned for home the Wicked Style colt had nothing to give and faded in the run to the line to finish well back.

The Chris Waller trained Counterattack was also well up in the market order at $4.80 and put in a good trial for the Group 1 $600,000 BMW Australia J.J. Atkins (1600m) at Doomben in a fortnight.

The majority of the two year olds that went around today are likely to front up again in the J.J. Atkins with the exception of Wicked Intent who looked to struggle at the 1350m today.

Look To The Stars recorded her second win from eight starts with her other victory being in a 1200m two year old race at Warwick Farm in March.

At her first run in Queensland three starts back the I Am Invincible filly made up plenty ground from the back when three quarters of a lengths fourth to Big Tree in the Group 3 $125,000 Moreton Hire Ken Russell Memorial Classic (1200m) at the Gold Coast on April 25.
