Paul Snowden has revealed that classy filly Quick Feet is in excellent condition leading into her competitive return in Saturday’s Listed The Rosebud (1200m) at Royal Randwick.
Quick Feet stamped herself as a filly to follow through a competitive two-year-old campaign, but has not been seen at the races since failing to make much of an impression and ninth in the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) on March 19th.
Snowden has been thrilled with the condition and ability displayed by the daughter of Northern Meteor in the lead-up to her competitive return in The Rosebud this weekend.
“She’s a very talented filly, probably underrated a touch and a little bit forgotten,” Snowden told Racing Ahead.
“She’s obviously first-up but she’s been trained up well and has had the benefit of two nice trials.
“She’s hasn’t seen a wet track at all so it’s a little bit of a guessing game.
“She’s definitely going well and is very genuine and honest, so she’s going to give it everything she’s got.”
Trialling well in the lead-up to her competitive debut, Quick Feet lined up amongst classy company in the Gsssa Winners Maiden Plate (1000m) on November 25th, but produced a particularly smart turn of foot to comfortably win.
Immediately returned to the paddock with a view towards the major Autumn Carnival two-year-old races, the filly out of Delaluna again trialled well but clearly required a run when seventh in the Group 2 Blue Diamond Prelude F (1100m) on February 13th.
Progressing to undoubtedly her best effort to date when a close second behind French Fern in the Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) on March 5th, Quick Feet found a good position in transit in the Golden Slipper, but failed to match the late efforts of stable mate Capitalist and company; finishing midfield.
Quick Feet could very well receive the run of the race in The Rosebud from the ideal barrier 3 and with Kerryn McEvoy aboard, but has been charged with overcoming 58kgs.
Quick Feet is currently available at 2016 The Rosebud odds of $9 for success with Ladbrokes Australia.
