    CLASSY filly No Win No Feed will continue her quest for another Group One triumph when she returns to Tabcorp Park Menangle on Saturday night.

    Racing in super form since joining Craig Cross’ stable, No Win No Feed caused a minor upset to capture the Bathurst Gold Bracelet last March.

    Given a short break soon after the victory, the Australian Pacing Gold purchase has had two runs back for a third and a win in a New South Wales Breeders’ Challenge heat.

    As such No Win No Feed is poised to contest a semi-final of the futurity, with Cross expecting the three-year-old to “be a big improver”.

    “With a couple of starts under her belt she will be close to her peak for Saturday night,” Cross said. “She had eight weeks between starts and now with two runs and some solid work she’s feeling pretty good.

    “I’m more than happy with her run in the heat last week and expect her to be a big improver for the second round.”

    To be driven by Luke McCarthy, No Win No Feed is likely to be pushed forward early from barrier three.

    Hoping the daughter of A Rocknroll Dance can find the lead, Cross stated he will be contempt to see No Win No Feed in the ‘death seat’.

    “We’ll be going forward from there, but whether she can cross Keayang Liberty in the pole we’ll have to wait and see,” Cross said.

    “She can do it tough, so if she has to stay out in the breeze it won’t worry her too much.

    “Keayang Liberty is the biggest threat so it will come down to what kind of runs they get.”

    The second semi will see Miss Halfpenny out to retain the title she secured in last season’s Group One decider.

    Third behind Victorian raider Our Road To Mecca in their heat, Miss Halfpenny has drawn barrier five but slots into three with the removal of the emergencies.

    Set to begin from gate two, Our Road To Mecca is the early favourite for trainer Ahmed Taiba.
