SHE WILL REIGN showed great courage win­ning the Group 1 Moir Stakes at Moonee Val­ley at her first-up run from a spell and her gal­lop Tues­day on the Course Proper says she is on the right path to The Ever­est.

Work­ing with sta­ble­mate CORTESA over 800m with Corey Brown in the sad­dle they clocked 51.04 the trip last 400m 22.69 fi­nal 200m in 10.6 be­ing eased down on the line.

Trainer Gary Portelli has trained her to per­fec­tion and with luck in run­ning will go close in The Ever­est.

Cortesta runs in the two-year-old race to­mor­row and has an each-way chance.

EMBLEY from the Bjorn Baker stable has been in fine form this preparation and look­ing at him at the track Tues­day you wouldn’t know that he’s had a run.

Work­ing on the Course Proper over 1000m he was timed to run 1.09.7 fi­nal 400m in 25.54 last 200m in 11.8.

His last 100m of gal­lop was right on the money and he has a strong chance in the Craven Plate.

REBEL MISS has been tick­ing along nicely at home since win­ning at a mid­week meet­ing in early Septem­ber.

She has had trial at Rose­hill where she fin­ished off okay and her work the last week has been spot on.

Tues­day on Course Proper she gal­loped over 1000m in 1.08.8 fi­nal 400m in 23.1 last 200m in 11.41.

Matthew Smith has al­ways had a good opin­ion of her and it’s all sys­tems go when she runs in the last race to­mor­row at Rand­wick.

A horse with loads of abil­ity is the David Pfeif­fer trained I THOUGHT SO who went down nar­rowly at Rand­wick a fort­night back.

The So You Think four-year-old has trained on well since with a smart gal­lop on the A Grass Saturday and Tues­day he worked the re­verse way on the Course Proper over 800m in 49.62 fi­nal 400m in 22.66 last 200m in 11.18.

He runs the last race at Caulfield Saturday and has a great chance.
