Delightful Memphis is in good shape for her first Australian start, the $11,500 C2 mobile at Albion Park, Brisbane, on Saturday night (June 17).
Mark reports she has come through the travel well, and he is hopeful she will show her good form in her first look at the track this weekend.
“She’s well, worked along pretty nicely this morning (Thursday),” said Mark.
“When you are not quite sure of the form it is hard to line her up against the opposition. But you’d like to think she’d be more than competitive back in the grade.
“We’ll just have to see what happens when the gate leaves and take it from there. She could land in front, but if I had to sit parked it wouldn’t bother me,” he said.
Kowhai Monarch also contests a trot feature on the card, and Mark will also drive him. His form has been good at Menangle and his Brisbane appearance will be interesting.
Rocker Band will join the duo after she contests $31,800 Frith Stakes (G3) over one mile at Menangle on Saturday night.
