Trainer Nigel Blackiston is excited to have his emerging talent You’re So Good back in work and aiming towards the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m) on her home track during the Spring Racing Carnival.

While she may not have attracted the attention of other fillies like the Bart Cummings-trained Norzita or her male counterparts such as Super Cool, You’re So Good showed some exciting promise in her first preparation during the 2013 Melbourne Festival of Racing.

Right from the time the rising four-year-old by Savabeel walked in to his stable, the Flemington-based Blackiston knew he “had a good one” on his hands.

Fast-finishing second placings behind Alzora in the Group 3 The Vanity (1400m) and Ferlax in the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m), when she lined up as the only filly in the Guineas field, Blackiston was pleased when she added a black type win to her name in the Listed Alexandra Stakes (1600m, 22 March) at Moonee Valley.

Her final run in her first preparation delivered an eighth placing, beaten seven lengths, on a less than ideal surface in the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill Gardens.

“She didn’t handle the heavy going. She missed the kick (at the start), pushed forward, over raced and did so many things wrong,” Blackiston said of the run which did nothing to dent his confidence in her ability.

“It was just one of those races that you put a line through and start again.”

Looking forward, the ultimate aim during the Spring Racing Carnival is the $500,000 Group 1 Myer Classic for fillies and mares under weight-for-age conditions on AAMI Victoria Derby Day.

“She’s been back in our stable for about four weeks now and doing a bit of evens (work) at the moment,” Blackiston noted.

“She’s come back in great order after a nice six week break and hopefully we’ll be kicking her campaign off in the Cockram Stakes at Caulfield.”

The Group 3 W.W. Cockram Stakes (1200m), to be run on 17 August, will be a a defining day for many carnival contenders with the feature race on the card the $220,000 Group 2 P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m) – a race that has shaped many Spring fortunes over the years.

“Then we’ll go to the Let’s Elope Stakes (Group 2, 1400m on 7 September) with her ultimate aim the Myer Classic.”

Blackiston will he hoping You’re So Good can snare his third career Group 1 success after Littorio won the Turnbull Stakes (2000m) and The BMW (2400m), both in 2008.

Blackiston will also be represented in the spring by untapped gelding Desert Wizard, an impressive winner of his two career starts to date.
