THE Kevin Hanley-trained Casino Star will be out to extend her winning spree at Albury today.
The in-form mare has notched three consecutive victories and will contest the $30,000 Open Handicap, (1500m).
Before resuming in December, Casino Star had previously won two races from 19 starts.
Hanley said his five-year-old mare had matured this preparation.
"She going well and I think the biggest difference is she has matured," Hanley said.
"I thought she had always shown her fair share of potential but was just immature.
"She is a half-sister to Burning Front who won over $1 million in prizemoney."

"We picked out a race for her in Sydney on Anzac day.
