30/11/2018 Invincible Star out to regain winning form

Invincible Star (I Am Invincible) will attempt to resurrect a spring campaign that went awry by getting a summer preparation back on track in tomorrow’s Starlight Stakes (Listed, 1100m) at Rosehill.
The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained four-year-old was plagued by issues throughout her five-start campaign, which saw a planned start in The Everest (1200m) aborted. Invincible Star is now being aimed at the Magic Millions carnival at the Gold Coast in January. “It has been a frustrating campaign because we know we’ve got a talented sprinter on our hands and we’re yet to really be able to capitalise on that talent and ability,” Bott said. “She’s coming off a disappointing run down the straight but her run before that in a Group 1 was excellent where she was tightened for room over the concluding stages and it probably cost her a place. Her form has been around some of the best sprinters in Australia prior to Saturday’s race, so it’s a significant drop in grade for her.”
