16/5/2018 Anatola on trial for Group One test

The Mark Newnham-trained Anatola (More Than Ready) will be given one last run over 1200 metres in the Bright Shadow Quality (Listed, 1200m) at Doomben on Saturday, before she is stepped up in distance in the Dane Ripper Stakes (Gr 2, 1350m) ahead of a run in the Tattersall’s Tiara (Gr 1, 1350m) on 23 June. The five-year-old mare was last seen winning the Silk Stocking Handicap (Listed, 1200m) at the Gold Coast on 5 May. "We're running her to decide if she steps up in trip for the Dane Ripper," Newnham said. "Going past 1200 is a new area for her with me but she's been strong through the line in her last two and done plenty of work in both races. She'll have to carry more weight this week, but she's earned it. She went fantastic in the Silk Stocking and if she reproduces that you'd expect she'd be able to win.”
