TASMANIAN Laurels winner Lillycette gets her chance to notch her first win on the Devonport track when she tackles a grade five event (race 3) over 452 metres this afternoon.

The Ted Medhurst-trained bitch has won three of her five starts since arriving in Medhurst’s kennel.

She was awesome in winning her Laurels heat and final but at her first try on the Devonport circuit last week she had to settle for second to Minnie Mogul after meeting interference nearing the home turn in a grade five over 452 metres.

Today she has drawn box eight and while an inside box would be more suitable she should be able to stay out of trouble to the top turn and if that eventuates she should be too good for this field.

The dangers appear to be Prince Nitro (1), Elite Enfield (6) and last start winner So Many Times (3).
