Tritton hopeful for Menangle

Trainer Shane Tritton says his exciting youngster My Sweetchilliphilly is rested and primed to strike when she returns to action on Saturday night.

My Sweetchilliphilly finished fifth in a Breeders' Crown semi-final last August and was sent for a spell soon afterwards.

She impressed when finishing second in a trial last week, and Tritton says the three-year-old is looking in fine shape ahead of her latest assignment at Tabcorp Park, Menangle.

"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.

Meanwhile Tritton also has the talented Ideal Pleasure to come from gate four, and has high hopes for her.

"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."
