Chance for wandering Star to shine away from home

A drop in grade and distance, and a 2kg claim, looks like the right formula for a smart filly to return to the winner’s stall and break an “away from home” hoodoo at Tuesday’s feature Manning Valley meeting at Taree.

On a strong card, three-year-old Emperor’s Star from the Brett Cavanough stable at Scone, comes back to 1000m in a good class 3 handicap after mixed form in stronger company over further.

Following a gallant second in the Wayne Harris at Muswellbrook, Emperor’s Star found a stronger BM 70 at Newcastle too tough. She finished down the track after racing on the speed.

On Tuesday, though, she returns to the trip over which she last won – a dashing performance in similar grade in mid-February, clocking a swift 33.55 seconds for her last 600m. In fact, from 12 starts, all three wins have come at home, and this is her first visit to Taree.
