Racing Online - Horse Racing News - Sunlight Shines In Adelaide Trial Return

Magic Millions-winning filly has made a one-act affair of her first public appearance since the Sydney autumn .

Unsighted since running third to Esitjaab in an all-fillies finish to the Golden Slipper, Sunlight was unextended to win a barrier trial at on Thursday.

Trainer Tony McEvoy sent Sunlight out over 1000m in soft conditions and she easily accounted for city winner More Than Exceed.

Leading jockey had Sunlight travelling outside the leader and allowed her mount to take control on the turn before the advantage to 4-1/2 lengths.

On Australian Timeform ratings this season, Sunlight is rated equal fourth behind Blue Diamond winner .

She has won five of her seven starts and more than $2 million in stakes and could be given an end-of-season opportunity to advance that record.

McEvoy has earmarked the Listed at Morphettville on July 28 as Sunlight's run depending on her recovery from Thursday's trial.

That could put her on a course to clash with emerging Victorian sprinter , a three-year-old with six wins from nine starts since stepping out for the first time in October.
