Consistent mare Plucky Girl has had two strong trials as she prepares for another major step in her surprising career.

Trainer admits Plucky Girl continues to surprise him as she steps up to new challenges with her record for 21 starts standing at eight wins and 11 minor placings as well as a fourth.

“Her only relatively poor run was on a very heavy track at last year,” Edmonds said.

Plucky Girl's best win was in the in April with her only run since a third in the Listed Classic at in June.

The mare gets another shot at a stakes race in the Listed Legacy Classic (1200m) at Doomben on Saturday.

“The Ipswich run showed she is up to Saturday's type of race and she has had two trials running second in both,” Edmonds said.

“Obviously with all mares you want a black-type win and hopefully she can get one this campaign.”

She will be ridden by whose win on Silverlink at Ipswich on Wednesday was his 46th since he moved to from Melbourne in August.

Although Saturday will be Maloney's first race ride on Plucky Girl, he was aboard for the first of her two recent trials.
