Unable to break through in four ...

Unable to break through in four starts this time in, Canberra based trainer Matthew Dale said her efforts have been a lot better than what they first appear.
A notable second placing behind Girl Guide two back, Dale said Jacinta simply didn't handle the wet track in the Listed Mona Lisa Stakes last start.
"Her two runs in Sydney were good, she ran really well behind Girl Guide in Melbourne and then she is just nowhere near her best in the wet," Dale said.
"She was just never comfortable at Wyong [Mona Lisa]."
Unraced at Canberra since her solid performance behind Messene in the Listed National Sprint, Dale said it was too good an opportunity to miss.
"We took the chance to give her a home game while it's there," Dale said.
"Theres not that many races throughout the year at Canberra that she can race in, the one on Friday is worth a bit of prizemoney and she only has to walk down the road."
Dropping back noticeably in grade, Jacinta does appear well placed on career best form.
"Her runs this preparation have been strong in tougher company, she now comes back to a country open at a track she's won at and at a distance she's won at," Dale said.
...
"Jay [Ford] knows her, he rode her a couple times last preparation, he understands her and we'll just have to see what the weather does," Dale said.
...
Though well travelled this preparation, Dale felt Jacinta hasn't shown any sides of ill effects.
"She hasn't missed a bit and has thrived this preparation within herself, the travelling doesn't appear to have affected her at home," Dale said.
From the good draw, Jacinta is expected to settle up on the speed, with future plans put on hold until after Friday's event.
"Naturally she races on speed and I would anticipate that she would be in the first four," Dale said.

Canberra based trainer Matthew Dale couldn't be happier with handy mare Jacinta, as she attempts to clinch her first stakes success in Friday's Listed Mona Lisa Stakes at Wyong.
Continuing to raise the bar with each performance, Dale said Jacinta had come through her latest effort at Moonee Valley in fine order.
"She got beaten by the right horse, all the mail down there was that Girl Guide was flying and was going as good as Gregers," Dale said.
"We were ultra pleased with Jacinta's performance.
"She is very well, fourth up stepping up to 1350m should definitely suit and we're very happy to have Tommy Berry back on board."
Though previously successful on a rain affected track, Dale said it still remains a concern.
"The question mark tomorrow is obviously the track condition, she has won on a Slow 7 previously but that was in a lot weaker company at Wagga earlier in her career,"
Drawn wide in the large field, Dale said they aren't going into tomorrow's race with a preordained plan.
"Tommy [Berry] knows the horse well, so I will pretty much leave it up to him, because from a wide gate in a pressure race, you don't want to go into the race too tied down," Dale said.
...
A notable sixth placing behind Messene in the Listed National Sprint last preparation, Dale said collecting some black-type success was important for her breeding prospects.
"With well bred mares, black type does become quite important," Dale said.

Dale Looking To Build With Jacinta 08 August 2014
Canberra based trainer Matthew Dale admits Jacinta faces a tough task at Randwick on Saturday, but expects her to show good improvement on her first up effort.
Set to line up in the final event, the daughter of Commands hit the line gamely fresh, after she settled further back than Dale had hoped.
"The ear muffs probably switched her off a little bit more than we anticipated," Dale said.
...
Electing to remove the ear muffs, Dale expects Jacinta to race more forward, though admitting she faces a tough task from the awkward draw.
"I'd imagine she will race a little bit closer because the ear muffs have come off," Dale said.
...
"It's always been the plan to build with her this preparation as she steps out in trip," Dale said.
...
Having taken his time with the son of Not A Single Doubt, Dale said he expects him to be even better next preparation.
"He's always been late to mature and has been a step behind his age group the whole way through," Dale said.

Canberra based trainer Matthew Dale appears to hold a strong hand at Thoroughbred Park on Friday with three leading chances engaged.
Dale saddled up a winning double at Canberra last meeting and appears well placed to kick off the new season on a winning note, with last start winner Coco Miss chasing a hat-trick of victories in the third event.
...
"She's well and truly on trial at the trip, when I first got her I thought she was suspect at 1200m, but she's run her last two starts out very solidly," Dale said.
...
"I thought she was a little bit plain in her debut for me back in February, so we elected to tip her out," Dale said.
...
Having created a good impression on debut when overcoming difficulty in the straight to work home strongly over the 1000m, Dale said she has continued to progress following her debut win.
"She hasn't missed a beat since her debut win, they seem to pull up a lot better after a first up run on their home track," Dale said.
