TOP harness racing trainer-driver has likened his smart filly Paris To Pisa to his former superstar juvenile Shez Ryleymak following her impressive debut win in a Big Park Stud Sweepstakes Prelude at Tattersall’s Park in Hobart last night.

Paris To Pisa rolled forward at the start and when Hillier decided the filly should try for the lead she achieved the goal within a blink of an eye  and from there on it was a procession.

While she was starting to tire turning for home she had enough in reserve to comfortably hold out another first-starter Hotlikeasunrise with the experienced Jazzy Jane a closing third.

It was an impressive debut performance from the filly that is owned by her breeder Mark Panton.

Paris To Pisa (American Ideal-Tantallon) had been twice to the trials for two impressive wins and Hillier was quietly confident she would do well on debut.

She did that and more. clocking a mile rate of 1.58.81 which was only .31 outside of Shez Ryleymak’s age and sex record over the 1609m (1.58.5) that she set in June, 2008.
