Clarry Conners will unveil a filly he hopes can measure up to Golden Slipper standard when Create makes her debut at Randwick on Saturday.
The youngster clocked handy time to score a six-length win in a recent barrier trial and has pleased equally as much with her work at home.
The trainer of four Golden Slipper winners, Conners believes Create has the credentials to develop into a contender for the $3.5 million race.
“Yes, with improvement. But she’s got to improve a bit yet and we will see how she copes with everything else,” he said.
“I think she’ll get amongst the good races. You’ve just got to take one race at a time.”
Create will line up in the TAB iPhone App Plate (1000m), a race shaping as one of the most interesting juvenile events so far this season.
Boom colt Rubick is a dominant $1.50 favourite ahead of Create and the Peter Moody-trained Pink Perfection, the only runner with race experience.
Gai Waterhouse will be represented by $1.35 million yearling Valentia and Twirl, a daughter of Lonhro out of a full sister to top stallion Fastnet Rock.
“All the talk about Gerald Ryan’s horse is he’s very good, there are a couple of Gai’s there that go OK also, so it’s not going to be an easy race,” Conners said.
“The other horse of Peter Moody’s is a 1000-metre horse and it’s going to be hard to run down. It has race experience and won well the other day.”
