Sun­light in good shape

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - SPORT -

MAGIC Mil­lions win­ner Sun­light is poised for a show­down with The Ever­est hope­ful Na­ture Strip in to­mor­row week’s Light­ning Stakes in Ade­laide af­ter a com­fort­able trial win at Mor­phettville yes­ter­day.

Trainer Tony McEvoy was more than happy with Sun­light, who won her trial by 4½ lengths with Ade­laide jockey Jamie Kah in the sad­dle.

“All went very well, I was im­pressed,’’ McEvoy said.

“She trav­elled beau­ti­fully and quick­ened nicely. The track was pretty rough and it was in av­er­age con­di­tions but she han­dled her­self re­ally well.

“She pulled up nicely so it went as good as it could have.’’

McEvoy said he would wait un­til the week­end be­fore mak­ing a firm de­ci­sion on whether the Listed Light­ning Stakes (1050m) at Mor­phettville would be her first run back.
