Genoveffa May Be Small But Set To Break Maiden Status At Kembla

Kerry Parker hopes to get Virigilio back to the Provincial Championships Final again this year, but the hope for his sister Genoveffa is to get her maiden win out of the way at Kembla Grange on Tuesday.

The three-year-old filly has banked a couple of runners-up cheques from Queanbeyan and Goulburn at her only two starts and Parker will step her up to 1200m in the Southern Medical Day Plate on her home track where she is a $10 chance (in from $11) on TAB fixed odds.

“She has her share of talent like her brother, but she is only small,” Parker said. “She has a good attitude to racing and she is holding it together well. Although she has a wide draw I think she will run well and I can see a bit of her brother in her.

“We got her in at this time of year because it gives her the opportunity to chase better races if she is up to it. As I said, she is only a light filly so the 1200m might test her a bit but the way she has been working you would think she would give a good account of herself.”

Parker will also take Sparman ($61) to the races for the second time in Tuesday’s Probus Club Of Miranda Maiden Handicap: “He is stepping up in trip and learnt quite a lot from that first run,” Parker said. “He will run a handy race and might worth an each-way ticket.”

Meanwhile, Parker will look to back-up Heartlings and Virgilio in the Kembla heat of the Provincial Championships after they ran credible races in the Wyong heat on Saturday.

“I was very happy with Heartlings, (which ran fifth) she loomed up and probably just needed that run. She will be much better suited on the big track her (at Kembla),” Parker said.

“Virgilio disappointed me a bit after his win at Canterbury but we will give him another go at it. He got into the Final last year and I think he is going just as well, if not better now.”
