Sunlight in good shape
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.
