LUCKLESS youngster Miss Ex will be given one more chance to register a feature win before being sent for a spell.
Making her fourth Group One appearance last weekend, Miss Ex finished second in an Australian Pacing Gold Bullion Final at Club Menangle.
The David Thorn-trained filly was also runner-up in last season’s APG Final.
Heading back to the world class venue on Saturday night, Miss Ex is engaged in the Golden Easter Egg.
Originally scheduled for April 9, the Group Three was postponed due to severe weather.
“She’s come through the APG Final in terrific shape and is ready to go again,” Thorn said. “This will be her last start before she goes for a break to have her ready for the New South Wales Breeders’ Challenge.
“I’ll give her a month off and then start building her up again.”
With regular driver Jim Douglass to take the reins, Miss Ex has drawn poorly in barrier nine.
Despite the three-year-old’s starting position, Thorn remains confident Miss Ex can end her campaign on a high.
“It’s not the best draw, but it’s not the end of the world either,” Thorn said. “The main chances have all drawn wide, including Soho Rhapsody which is outside us.
“If she gets the right run she’ll be right in it.”
