Miss Liffey Will Resume Bigger And Stronger

Promising Canberra filly Miss Liffey is ready set for her return to racing.

Miss Liffey has won four of her six starts - all at Canberra.

Her only ‘outs’ were both in the city where she didn’t meet the best of fortune.

Trainer Trevor McIlrick says Miss Liffey has been in work for a while and has come back in terrific order.

“She’s got a fair bit of upside I think you will find,” McIlrick says.

“She’s grown a lot and she’s a lot stronger… she’s a very nice filly now. And she’ll probably get better again as she matures further.

“We will get the first run out of the way and make plans after that.”

Miss Liffey is down to race at Canberra on Friday in a BM65 over 1000m, but McIlrick says she won’t run if the track is too wet.

“She is ready to go and she has pretty effective up to a soft 7, but is an unknown in really heavy conditions.

“If those prevail — and being first-up — we will keep her for another day.”

McIlrick says his mare Blue Carlou will definitely run at Canberra on Friday in a BM65 over 1400m.

“She likes the wet, but has to come back from the 2000m and that is an ask.

“However, if the track is in the heavy range it will race like a mile and that’s probably her best trip.”
