The four-year-old mare commenced her preparations with a promising outing during her first trial at the newly laid Caulfield Heath track on Monday morning, covering 1000 metres and clinching fifth place under the guidance of jockey Blake Shinn.
“She stepped a little bit slow away, but she quickly mustered and sat in behind them.
“We asked Blake not to give her a solid one as she'll go two weeks now to her next one, where she will be asked to do a little bit more.”
“Blake said she was building through the line nicely and did everything she needed to do.
“We think she's a good chance in an Oakleigh Plate depending on what weight she gets, so once she has a second one, she will be cherry ripe for a first-up assignment.”
Regarding Skew Wiff's future plans, Gleeson hinted at the possibility of aiming for the prestigious Group 1 Newmarket Handicap (1200m) at Flemington on March 9, in addition to considering other notable races.
