Flying filly set for city clash

ALBURY trainer Brett Cavanough is poised to tackle heavyweights Gai Waterhouse and Gerald Ryan at Rosehill on Saturday.

Cavanough-trained filly New Moves has accepted to contest the $85,000 Australian Turf Club handicap over 1100 metres.

Star jockey Corey Brown has been booked to ride.

The three-year-old has won her past three starts — at Albury, Wagga and Gundagai — and will race against city company for the first time.

She ran third to Sumakaray — trained by Wodonga’s Brian Cox — in the Jack Maher Classic in July.

Cox, meanwhile, has four mounts of his own poised to run at Flemington on the same day.

This Cat’s Magic, Murdoch’s Joy, Full Hand and Minnie Downs have all accepted in races at Australia’s most famous racecourse on Saturday.

Despite running third at Moonee Valley last start, Cox will have to wait and see whether Full Hand gets a spot in the a 1720m handicap.

The gelding is currently an emergency.

Dwayne Dunn, Craig Newitt and champion hoop Glen Boss have all been booked by Cox.
