Dental impresses at Cranbourne
Trainer Troy Corstens believes Dental is ready to go to the races for the first time at Mornington on Wednesday, following an impressive trial at Cranbourne.
Dental has been putting in some eye-catching displays in gallops and jumpouts at Flemington, but Corstens was keen to test him elsewhere and sent him to Cranbourne.
Dental finished third over 800m on a heavy track, and Corstens said it was mission accomplished.
"She's a very nice filly we've got a lot of time for and has shown us she can gallop," Corstens said.
"She's done everything here at Flemington and we thought it would be good for her to go away, have a trial and experience something close to what she will meet on a race day.
"She didn't have a hard trial, coped with it all very well and had a good experience."
Corstens thinks everything is in place for Dental to run a good race, particularly after landing a nice draw, but is expecting the filly to be even better next preparation.
"She's shown us she has ability and I think she can run a forward race on Wednesday but I do think she will be better next time around," Corstens added.
"She's drawn nicely on Wednesday and it looks a nice race to start her off in."
Dental is 6/1 to win at Mornington on Wednesday.
