GLOBAL QUEEN (Randwick June 12): Unraced Snitzel filly has now had four trials and has steadily improved with each experience. This was her best effort to date, leading under restraint in her 1080m heat (64.29) before getting them all off the bit when she sprinted from the 300m, ripping home in a fast 33.83. Sure to be well fancied when produced.
