As a three-year-old the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott-trained daughter of Star Witness enjoyed back-to-back elite level wins when doing the 2016 Flight Stakes – Thousand Guineas double at a mile.

The now four-year-old has enjoyed dual Group 2 victories since and is tipped to return to winning form second-up on Saturday in the Group 2 $200,000 Expressway Stakes (1200m).

Global Glamour was last seen carting a hefty 60.5kg to a brave sixth when three lengths beaten in the $1 million Magic Millions Fillies & Mares (1300m) at the Gold Coast on January 13.

On the weekend she comes back to 56.5kg at weight-for-age and has Kerrin McEvoy aboard for the Expressway Stakes, which she pays a firming $3 through Ladbrokes.com.au to take out from barrier three.

Hot on her heels in the latest Expressway Stakes odds at $3.30 and drawn one closer to the fence in gate two is the returning Bjorn Baker-trained Addictive Nature.

Jockey Jason Collett rides the lightly-raced Savabeel colt who lines-up in his fifth career start first-up on the weekend.

Already a Group 3 winner thanks to a Rosehill victory in the Ming Dynasty Quality (1400m) last August, three-year-old Addictive Nature races for the first time since his third in the Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes (1500m) last September.

He has trialled twice since in January including a smart two and a half-length winning hit-out at Rosehill on January 22 and looks the genuine danger fresh.

Occupying the third line of betting at $4.40 is another smart three-year-old racing first-up for the autumn, the Gerald Ryan-trained Snitzel colt Trapeze Artist.

At his last Rosehill run back in September, Trapeze Artist left his better fancied rivals for dead flying home for a four length upset in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m).

He was found out when stepped down in distance and tested down the iconic Flemington straight however during the Melbourne Cup Carnival when 15th to Merchant Navy in the Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m).

Out to return to winning form in Sydney, Trapeze Artist had an official trial at Rosehill over 900m on January 22 and won the heat that included superstar horses Winx (sixth) and Redzel (seventh).

Rounding out the single-figure fancies to win the Expressway Stakes at $7.50 is then Memes in barrier four, Jason Coyle testing his Time Thief mare in tougher grade second-up.

A winner of six of her 17 starts to date, the consistent four-year-old returned at Randwick on January 20 and won the Summer Sprint (1000m).

She will need to be improving to come away victorious again on Saturday however as she rises in class, distance and weight (56.5kg) having carted just 51.5kg to victory first-up.
