TRAINER Donna Scott will set the bar high with her stable star Bennelong Dancer this preparation.
The Border's best credentialled galloper ran the race of her career when finishing third in the $500,000 Country Championship final at Randwick in early April.
Bennelong Dancer headed straight to the spelling paddock after the brave performance.

Scott said her five-year-mare was back in work and could be aimed at the The Kosciuszko at Randwick in October.
Bennelong Dancer is quoted as a $15-chance in futures markets for the $1.3-million sprint.
"She has been in light work and might head to Wangaratta at the end of the week for a gallop," Scott said.
"She is probably three to four weeks off having an official trial.
"We will then look to target a fillies and mares race at either Caulfield or Flemington.
"Hopefully a slot holder will then look at picking her for The Kosciuszko."
