Seal confident ahead of Globe Derby

Trainer Jeremy Seal believes Dougs Limousine will have what it takes to make her mark when she returns from injury at Globe Derby on Sunday.

The mare has been out of action for almost a year after slashing her leg in a paddock accident, but is finally ready to make a much-anticipated return to action tomorrow.

Seal said: "She cut her back leg down to cannon bone where there really isn't much flesh. She shredded it quite badly and it was a mess.

"It didn't look good for a while, but she was given plenty of time and is showing no signs of concern."

Dougs Limousine has been trialling well in the lead up to the race and Seal believes she is capable of making her presence felt at Globe Derby, even though she is still a couple of races short of peak fitness.

"I trialled her last Sunday and she went quite well," Seal said. "She got tired over the last 50 metres but pulled up great and has improved during the week.

"She'll still need a couple of runs to hit her peak, but she is going well enough to let them know she is there.

"The race looks like a good starting point for her and I expect her to get back to her best."
