COMPLACENT FILLY WITH LOFTY AMBITIONS
Cambridge trainer Catherine Cameron has a promising three-year-old filly on her hands in the form of Comme Bella Fille (NZ) (Complacent), who was successful in the Lyndhurst Farm 1400m at Matamata on Wednesday.
The daughter of Complacent came from the rear of the field under a ground-saving ride from Tegan Newman to score in the manner of a filly that will be effective over further.
“She has always been a nice athletic filly and has wanted to please,” Cameron said.
“She got flattened at her first start and then ran a super third at Te Rapa before we freshened her up.
“She had a quiet trial at Rotorua last week and we had to back her up this week if we were any hope to get to something like the Sunline Vase (Gr.3, 2100m), which would be our preferred target.”
Comme Bella Fille was purchased after failing to meet her $15,000 reserve at the 2019 New Zealand Bloodstock Ready To Run Sale.
“We bought her for some very good owners who I trained Cossack Warrior for,” Cameron said.
“She’s not nominated for the Oaks (Gr.1, 2400m), but depending how she performs in a race like the Sunline Vase, we would consider a late payment.”
