Luke Nolen, fresh from Wednesday's treble at Ballarat, is confident Bring Me the Maid can make an impact on Saturday's Thousand Guineas, especially if there's some moisture in the Caulfield track.
Nolen said the addition of blinkers would assist Bring Me the Maid, who ran below her usual high standard in the Thousand Guineas Prelude on September 27.
Nolen said Bring Me the Maid, placed in last season's Golden Slipper, had the ability to rebound.
"If there's a bit of moisture in the track come Saturday, I think with the blinkers added she can give it a real shake," Nolen said.
Nolen rode two winners — A Million Tears and Fight to the Line — for Peter Moody at Ballarat and added a third winner on the Mick Kent-trained Varboss.
Varboss is a son of Varevees,  a French mare purchased by prominent owner/breeder Rick Jamieson who ran 14th in the Melbourne Cup behind Viewed.
The four-year-old, having his first start for Kent, finished powerfully in a manner that suggested he will better suited over longer distances than Wednesday's 1400 metres. (Racing Network)
