Multiple stakes-winning filly Melt will have her first start for new trainer Chris Waller on Saturday, when she contests the Gr.2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) at Randwick.
A dual Group Three winner, Melt won four of her eight starts for trainer Nigel Tiley and finished second to Avantage in the Gr.1 Manawatu Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) as a juvenile.
“Melt has been with us for the last few months and has settled in very well,” Waller said.
“She trialled nicely and comes to Australia with some very good New Zealand form over these shorter distances.
“I am sure she is going to acquit herself well and from the good draw, with Glyn Schofield in the saddle, she should be able to settle up near the pace.”
