DELORAINE trainer Terry Roles expects his promising three-year-old Alesto Star to improve enough in the opening race at Tattersall’s Park today to emerge triumphant in the Steve Bryant Memorial Maiden Plate for three-year-olds and older.

Alesto Star is coming off an eye-catching third at Devonport on January 5 over 1000 metres in which he worked home well and gave the impression he would appreciate more ground.

“We have taken our time with Alesto Star and there is no doubt he will appreciate stepping up to the 1400 metres today,” Roles said.

The stable has three runners on the opening day of the AAMI Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival that boasts 10 outstanding races.

Roles also expects his promising stayer Happent to shine in race four, a benchmark 68 handicap over 2100 metres.
