Expensive filly Zac Attack will resume with only one trial under her belt after missing a second hit-out this week.

Zac Attack has drawn barrier one in the TAB Three-Year-Old Fillies Handicap (1000m) at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

The Toby and training partnership has taken its time with Zac Attack who is entered for the Group One and Group One Thousand Guineas.

She will be having her first run since winning on debut at in March after which she was sent for a spell to mature.

By leading sire I Am Invincible, Zac Attack cost $320,000 at the 2018 sale and her half sister by Not A Single Doubt fetched $725,000 this year.

The filly was impressive in a trial last month beating stablemate Grand Zou who has since been a winner at the .

Zac Attack was set to have another trial at the Sunshine Coast on but did not make the trip from her Gold Coast stable.

“We had a look at things and the Eagle Farm 1000m metre race suited her better than a trial,” said.

“She is still a bit wintry and woolly but she has barrier one so we will see.”

Edmonds said whether Zac Attack went to Melbourne would depend on her form in the next month.

“Nominations for those races are early and she is a well bred filly so you have to put them in,” he said.

Edmonds remains confident stakes winning sprinter can break a run of outs in the BRC Membership Open Handicap (1000m).

“I thought his last-start second at Eagle Farm was close to the run of the race but he still has plenty of weight to carry,” he said.
