Trainer ex­pects plenty of Siz­zle

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - SPORT - TOM BOSWELL GOLD COAST

TRAINER An­gela Plumb won’t need to worry about run­ning into any Group-class horses again when im­prov­ing filly Sugar Siz­zle makes her re­turn to rac­ing at the Gold Coast to­day.

The last time the twoyear-old ran was a week be­fore the Gold Coast Magic Mil­lions in Jan­uary when she placed fourth be­hind even­tual $2 mil­lion 2YO Clas­sic win­ner Sun­light, Ter­mi­nol­ogy and Paquirri.

All three have won or run in Group races since with Sun­light also plac­ing third in the Golden Slip­per.

Sugar Siz­zle, who was an emer­gency for the Magic Mil­lions 2YO Clas­sic, will have a first-up run in to­day’s QTIS Two-Year-Old Class 3 Plate (900m) at Aquis Park.

Gold Coast-based Plumb said Sugar Siz­zle had re­turned more ma­ture af­ter her spell and she ex­pected the Aquis-owned filly to race well in the five-horse field to­day.

“She has def­i­nitely come back a lot stronger,” Plumb said of the filly who won sec­ond-up over 900m at Mur­willum­bah in her ini­tial rac­ing cam­paign.

“She has grown a bit and I ex­pect her to go re­ally well (to­day). I was re­ally happy with her last run.

“When she didn’t make it into the fi­nal field for the Magic Mil­lions she was ready for a spell any­way.”

Plumb said Sugar Siz­zle had some pre-train­ing at Aquis Farm be­fore re­turn­ing to the sta­bles last month.

She said she was in no rush to step Sugar Siz­zle up in grade and would let the Siz­zling filly dic­tate her path.

“We are not go­ing to be tar­get­ing the re­ally dif­fi­cult races,” Plumb said.

“It would be nice to take her across the bor­der again to NSW where she can get the BOBS (Breeder Owner Bonus Scheme) bonus.”
