Houtzen in Top Shape for Slipper
Meanwhile, Toby Edmonds says fellow unbeaten filly Houtzen (I Am Invincible-Set to Unleash, by Reset) is in career best form ahead of Saturday's $3.5 million Gr1 Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill, reports racingnsw.com.au. The Gold Coast-based trainer drew barrier 16 for his filly at yesterday's draw, but she will start from 14 if the three emergencies come out. "The barrier makes us more hopeful than confident right now but with a barrier we'd have been confident," said Edmonds. "I think she is probably going better now than what she was before the Magic Millions. She is in a good spot." Houtzen retains favouritism ahead of She Will Reign for the world's richest juvenile race despite drifting from $4 to $4.40 after yesterday's barrier draw.
