The Gr.1 Courtesy Ford Manawatu Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) is the target for the smart juvenile Bit Lippy.

“He’s going to go to the Matamata Slipper and then the Sires’ Produce, I’m not sure about the Sistema as the Manawatu one is a bit longer and that will suit him,” trainer Wayne Hillis said.

Bit Lippy placed at his first three starts in black type company before he won last Saturday’s Gr.3 Phoenix Park 2YO Classic (1200m) at New Plymouth.

“He’d been unlucky in a couple so he deserved it,” Hillis said.
