Messara Reports Alverta "Starting To Thrive"

Friday, 11th June 2010

Australian trainer Paul Messara has fellow Australian sprinter & Gr1-winning 6YO mare Alverta (Flying Spur-Grilse, by Rahy) aimed at the Gr1 Golden Jubilee Stakes (6 furlongs) on June 19 at Royal Ascot & told gbiracing.com: "She has settled in very well & I am very pleased with the way she is at the moment. She has come on a lot in the last 10 days & is starting to thrive. She has put back on 15-20kg of the 40kg she lost on the journey over here. She has really enjoyed the work here. I have been on the gentle side with her. She is normally very good when fresh & she is not a horse you want to over-gallop. The 6 furlongs is on the short side for her, but the 6 here is probably like an Australian 7 furlongs. She sprints very well & has run Takeover Target to a nose in the past."
