    AT THE moment there are two, but by the end of tomorrow night’s Melton meeting there will only be one.

    Which one that will be is anybody’s guess…in fact, even their trainer, Emma Stewart, is unable to provide an answer!

    Engaged in an Australasian Breeders’ Crown Final, exciting stablemates Very Pretty and Draw A Dream are set to compete against each other for the first time.

    The significance of the encounter is both fillies enter the clash undefeated.

    Very Pretty has won her four starts in stylish fashion, while Draw A Dream boasts a perfect record from six outings.

    “I’m not even going to make a prediction,” Stewart said. “They are both very nice fillies and will take a lot of beating.

    “Winning streaks don’t last forever and for one of them, maybe even both, it will come to an end on the weekend.

    “You could say the draw favours Very Pretty ever so slightly, but is that enough, who knows?

    “All I can say for certain, is both are going into this in perfect condition and the winner will have earned it, regardless of who that is.”

    To be driven by Mark Pitt, Very Pretty will begin from barrier two, with Draw A Dream next to her in three.

    TAB Fixed Odds have Very Pretty heading the market at $1.60, with Draw A Dream the $2.60 second elect.

    The only other runner under double figures, New South Wales raider Lux Aeterna is considered the main danger at $9.50 from gate 10.

    Lux Aeterna was unbeaten from nine starts before finishing second – beaten a head – behind Very Pretty in a heat and third in a semi won by Draw A Dream.

    Stewart will also be represented by Eureka Jo, which will begin from barrier four.

    The consistent two-year-old has been among the placegetters during the qualifying rounds.
