Sweet Idea will get the opportunity to avenge her narrow defeat in the Magic Millions carnival as a two-year-old in the $1 million Guineas in three weeks after a strong win first-up at Wyong on Thursday. The Gai Waterhouse trained filly, who was second in the $2 million race behind Real Surreal at the Gold Coast , never disappointed her supporters, leading throughout to defeat Weinholt and Estonian Princess as a short-priced favourite.

Ridden by James McDonald, Sweet Idea showed her customary early speed and while she controlled the race throughout, for a few fleeting moments it looked as though the lightly raced Snitzel filly may be in stife shortly after straightening.

"She is not a filly that is going to win by a big margin or do it easy, she is a fighter," McDonald said.

"She looked like she was going to be beaten on the turn but she keeps going, she could have kept going for another furlong if she had too, I think she will improve a lot.

"She did it both ends, I worked her early to get the lead, then we backed off the speed and she sprinted when asked."

"I don't think the 1400m will worry her, she has won a strong 1200m here and she was good at the finish, I wouldn't worry me at all stepping her up in distance.

"She makes her own luck and is just so tough, typical strong Gai Waterhouse horse."

Mark Newnham said Sweet Idea, who was returning from a bleeding attack, would not have another run before the Magic Millions Guineas (1400m).

"She is never a horse that will make things look easy but she gets the job done, it has been no different to the way she has raced in the past, in the Silver Slipper Jimmy was at her for a long way out, she takes a lot of riding," he said.
