Viadana Unlikely Makfi Starter

Wednesday, 20th August 2014

Meanwhile, trainer Lance Noble says that Gr1-winning New Zealand mare Viadana (Towkay-Yeah Nah, by Kinjite) is unlikely to contest the Gr1 Makfi Challenge Stakes at Hastings on 30 August. "She came through the Foxbridge Plate really well and had a good puff afterwards. She wasn't as forward as I thought and I don't like the timing for the Makfi," said Noble. He said his preferred options were to give Viadana a trial and run her next in the Gr1 Windsor Park Plate or head straight to Melbourne. Noble has previously nominated the weight-for-age Gr1 Myer Classic (1600m) for fillies and mares at Flemington on Victoria Derby day (1 November) as a suitable target for the two-time Gr1 winner.
