Another Bullseye on target for big campaign


Another Bullseye showed she was on target for a big campaign as the Mossman mare won for the first time fresh at Pakenham on Thursday night.

One of the outsiders in the six-horse field jockey Daniel Moor let the mare balance up early at the tail of the field before making a decisive move at the 600m by moving up three-wide and keeping the favourite blocked in, before bursting clear.

Moor, who in the past two days has been granted a contract to ride in Singapore, said he was impressed with the mare.

"She has been going well back at home, but she usually needs the run first-up and this is short of her best distance so it all bodes well for her campaign," Moor said.

The win for the jockey-trainer combination was the second in two days, following Dreaded's six-length romp at Sandown on Wednesday.

"Daniel is riding in terrific form and he rode this race perfectly, we are going to miss him when he takes up his six-month contract in Singapore, but we have a few more wins planned before he jets off," O'Brien said.

The win was the four-year-old mare's third in her career and took her prizemoney to $125,000 from her 17 race starts.
