Expert Eye Aims for Hat-Trick

Wednesday, 24th June 2020

Queensland trainer Kelly Schweida is cautious about 3YO filly Expert Eye (Better Than Ready-Rasterira, by Flying Spur) and her chances to bag a hat-trick of wins today in the QTIS 3YO Handicap over 1690m at Ipswich, reports racingqueensland.com.au. "She's a nice filly but I wanted to run her over 1400 metres at the Gold Coast last Friday but the meeting was washed out," Schweida revealed. "She's done a good job to win twice in her five starts which have all been in one preparation. She'll race well again but I would have preferred this to be over 1400 metres. Instead, she's had to step up in distance to 1690 metres which isn't ideal. I'm hoping she will run a big race again but she'll go the paddock after this run." Expert Eye has won her past two starts, both over 1350m, and her record stands at two wins from five starts, with two fourth placings and a third from her first three raceday outings. Schweida trained her sire Better Than Ready to eight wins from 16 starts, and now races Expert Eye on lease after she was passed in by Lyndhurst Stud at the Magic Millions March sale.
