Assail On Track for 2013 Golden Slipper

Clarry Conners‘ exciting filly Assail is over a hoof injury and back on track for a start in next month’s Group 1 $3.5 million 2013 Golden Slipper (1200m).

The talented two-year-old comfortably won a trial at Rosehill on Tuesday, indicating she is well and truly over the problem that saw her scratched from the Magic Millions Classic on race day.

The Charge Forward filly was favourite for the Magic Millions Classic after going unbeaten in two lead-up runs.

Assail won on debut at Warwick Farm in November before leading from start to finish in the Wyong Magic Millions Classic in December to claim a dominant three-length victory.

Regular jockey Peter Robl was aboard for Tuesday’s trial and while he said signs are positive, he maintains the team are not getting too far ahead of themselves.

“She is definitely heading in the right direction but she’s still got to do it,” Robl told AAP.

A possible race-day return for Assail could come in the Group 3 2013 Sweet Embrace Stakes (1200m) at Warwick Farm on March 16.

Despite the injury problems and the fact she is behind many of her rivals in her preparation, Assail is still considered a strong Golden Slipper chance.

She currently occupies the seventh line of Golden Slipper betting at $21.

Favourite is Gai Waterhouse-trained filly Overreach ($4.40) who won the Listed Widden Stakes by six lengths at Rosehill last month.

Victorian filly Villa Verde is second favourite at $7.50 while Silver Slipper winner Sweet Idea, Silver Slipper third Charlie Boy and Whittington all share the third line of betting at $15.

Whittington and Sweet Idea are also trained by Waterhouse, who is a strong chance of claiming back-to-back Golden Slipper titles after Pierro won last year.
