The More Than Ready two-year-old bounced back from an eighth-place finish in the Silver Slipper to win by a length from Thump and Greytfilly.

The youngster clearly appreciated the dry Warwick Farm surface, coming home fast over the top of her rivals.

O’Shea is excited to have a confirmed Golden Slipper runner and is confident there is improvement to come ahead of the world’s richest two-year-old race.

“We haven’t really bottomed her out. You might have to give some consideration to toying with some gear,” O’Shea said.

“I’d probably like to see her a little bit closer in the Slipper.

“Whether we put a set of winkers on her just to help a little bit to get a forward position. But I was very happy with her. She ran a strong six [furlongs] and was strong through the line.”

James McDonald has ridden Romantic Moon in all three of her career starts and believes she is well on her way into developing into a quality racehorse.

“She’s push button,” McDonald said.

“She feels a beautiful filly and she’s one in the making anyway.”

Odds-on favourite Assail began poorly before getting caught third last and buried between runners.

Peter Robl tried hard to find her a run in the straight but she was never in the race, eventually finishing in sixth position.

Many of these horses are being aimed at the Slipper so remember the form and back a winner at great odds at!
