While there is no black-type racing at Moonee Valley this weekend, there are some interesting runners returning including One Last Dance in the $80,000 2012 William Martin Harvey Sprint (1000m).
The Peter Moody-trained sprinter is unbeaten from three career starts but has not raced since February 2011 when she won the Group 3 Blue Diamond Prelude at Caulfield.
A daughter of Encosta De Lago, the now four-year-old is due to make her return this Saturday from barrier one with Dwayne Dunn on board.
After showing plenty of promise in her juvenile career, One Last Dance has experienced terrible luck, with injury and illness delaying her return on a number of occasions.
The two-time black-type winner missed the Blue Diamond as a two-year-old after suffering a shoulder injury before suffering a colic attack that ruled her out of the spring.
The poor run of luck continued in the autumn when she was forced to miss the entire carnival because of a twinge in the back of one of her knees.
Despite not having raced in 18 months, One Last Dance has opened at $4.40 at bookmaker.com.au for her return race on Saturday.
Another interesting runner in the William Martin Harvey Sprint is 2011 Oakliegh Plate winner Eagle Falls who is currently being offered at $10.00.
Resuming for the first time since a disappointing autumn campaign, the Group 1 winning horse will carry 60kg from barrier five.
After beginning his autumn campaign in excellent fashion when winning the Rubiton Stakes, Eagle Falls failed to finish in the top half of the field in his next four starts.
Also set to run in the 1000-metre race are Jason Warren-trained Freereturn ($5.50) and last-start winner Broken ($6.00).
