Peter Moody-trained mare Lights Of Heaven stands as one of the best chances to upset her stable mate Manighar in tomorrow’s Group 1 $500,000 2012 Doomben Cup (2000m).
The Zabeel four-year-old was beaten at the line by Shez Sinsational last start in wet conditions and should improve with an expected dry track at Doomben this weekend.
She had a tremendous start to her career last year when winning her first four starts including the Group 1 Schweppes Oaks and since then has been solid when taking on older horses.
The New Zealand-bred mare has drawn nicely in barrier six and sits just behind Shez Sinsational at $6.00 in the Doomben Cup market.
