EXCITING youngster My Sweetchilliphilly is primed to make a winning return at Tabcorp Park Menangle on Saturday night.
That’s the call from co-trainer Shane Tritton, who prepares the daughter of Betterthancheddar with his reinswoman-wife, Lauren.
Sent for a spell following her fifth in a Breeders’ Crown semi-final last August, My Sweetchilliphilly finished second in a trial against older rivals last week, with Tritton stating the three-year-old’s work “has been sensational”.
“We couldn’t be happier with her,” Tritton said. “She ended up getting sick while travelling to Bendigo, which is why she was put straight in a paddock.
“The spell has done her the world of good and she’s in terrific shape. She’s grown, filled out a little and looks a million dollars.
“She was working great before the trial, but since then her work has been sensational.
“She’s a star and we’re very confident she’s ready to win first-up.”
My Sweetchilliphilly has drawn barrier seven in the Raith Memorial, but slots into six with the removal of the emergency.
The filly is one of two runners the Trittons have in the feature, with the talented Ideal Pleasure to come from gate four.
“She did well to win first-up last week and has improved for the run,” Tritton said. “She’s shown of bit of class and will get better as the season goes along.”
