Trainer Peter Moody has few issues with King's Rose being drawn 11 out of 14 on his first international start in Sunday's Group 1 Champions Mile.
Moody said the New Zealand-bred King's Rose, who is owned by Hong Kong resident Dr Gene Tsoi and is Australia's lone entry, needed to do well to continue her journey to England to join Black Caviar.
Last Saturday, Moody and jockey Luke Nolen took centre stage at Morphettville where Black Caviar claimed the record for the most consecutive wins in Australasia in the Group 1 Sportingbet Classic (1200m).
The New Zealand-bred mare is on trial for a trip to join Black Caviar in England against the serious International opposition in the $2 (Aus) million Shatin feature.
"She has travelled well and settled in well and I'm looking for a big performance," Moody said. "We would have let her get back a bit no matter where she drew.
"She is very well and very fit and it's a mater of how she measures up against these horses."
King's Rose had a casual work-out on the all-weather track this morning. She is a Group 1 winner in NZ and has won twice at Group 2 level and been placed four times in Group 1 company this season.
Her latest was when the Redoute's Choice four-year-old finished third to Sydney's champion mare More Joyous in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1500m) three weeks ago.
Back in Australia, jockey Daniel Moor has no concerns about Northern Hemisphere gallopers Mawingo and Fruehling handling the tricking Gold Coast circuit in their Queensland debuts for Victorian trainer Anthony Freedman.
Mawingos is the $3.30 favourite to win the Hollindale Cup (1800m). He hails from Germany like Melbourne Cup place-getter Lucas Cranach and rises to Group 2 weight-for-age company for the first time in the $300,000 feature, since winning first-up at Flemington last month.
Freedman has elected a lower profile for Fruehling, a last start Werribee winner, with the import to run in the Zaidee's Rainbow Foundation Handicap (2200m).
"Mawingo is fairly inexperienced, but it is not a vintage Hollindale," Moor said. "If he is a genuine WFA performer he has to step up this weekend.
"You have to wipe what these horses have done overseas and look only at their Australian form.
"Mawingo showed us he has talent and he is tough at his only Australian start. Fruehling was a good quality first-up winner, but his second win stamped him as a decent progressive horse.
"It is not often at the business end you can canter up to them in a 2000m race on the turn and have them beat from there."
Moor returned from suspension in Malaysia as a track rider for the Freedman camp a year ago and has not looked back.
"I was never promised rides but I have done the right thing by them and they have rewarded me," Moor said.
In the South Australian Derby, the sole Group 1 run in Australia tomorrow, the Anthony Cummiongs-trained Strike The Stars has been plunged into a $4.10 equal favourite with Zabeelionaire to give the Sydney trainer consecutive wins in Morphettville's $500,000 (Aus) classic (2500m).
Cummings won with Shadows In The Sun, a far inferior galloper on form, last year.
