The New Zealand-bred mare ran below expectations when ninth to Consensus in the Stakes, her first outing since the spring.

Begg said the mare looked a bit dour and instead of an immediate trip to Sydney and then further north to Brisbane she will instead be aimed at the Group Three Easter Cup at .

“We've had a change of plan with her,” Begg said.

“She was a bit dour the other night at Moonee Valley so we've turned things around with her.

“We're going to keep her here and have another look at her so at this stage she'll run next Saturday in a 2000-metre handicap at Caulfield and then we'll aim her up for the Easter Cup at Caulfield.

“After that we'll work out what we do.”

Begg had been planning to run the mare in the before heading to Brisbane for the Hollindale Cup at the on May 4 and the two weeks later.

After two unplaced runs in New Zealand during 2017, Our Libretto joined Begg's stable last year winning four races on end before an unlucky seventh in the at Flemington on November 10.
