Australian Racing - Racing: Trainers upbeat on Glint Of Hope chances

Training partners Trent Busuttin and Natalie Young will bid for more Oaks glory on Saturday when their Australasian Oaks winner Glint Of Hope takes her chance in the Group 1 Queensland Oaks at Eagle Farm.

The daughter of Japanese sensation Deep Impact will jump from barrier 14 for the final Classic of the season and will need to overcome a five-week absence, having not raced since her breakthrough win at Morphettville on 30th April.

Busuttin happy with prep

Despite that, connections are pleased with how the 14/1 chance is heading into the 2200-metre contest. You can follow the action via our Sports Live Streaming service.

"She has been ticking over since the Australasian Oaks and we are very happy with her," Busuttin told

"Five weeks between runs, we thought about trialing her, but the wet weather took care of that.

"She is only a light filly, she isn't a big, strong, robust thing, so we've just kept her ticking over with the gallops and she will certainly be fit enough."

Busuttin plays down distance

The dual winner will be stepping back up in trip on the weekend, but Busuttin does not expect the longer distance to be a problem for the filly who was beaten just over four lengths in the VRC Oaks back in November, her only other try beyond 2000 metres.

"I don't think that (the extra 200 metres) will be an issue on pedigree and she was strong enough through the line in Adelaide, so it's not a concern," Busuttin said.

Daniel Moor, who was on board for the Australasian Oaks triumph, will once again take the ride.
