Co-trainer Anthony and Sam Freedman are hoping Agreeable (Sebring) can add some valuable black-type to her record before she heads off to the paddock when she lines up in the Adelaide Guineas (Listed, 1600m) at Morphettville on Saturday. 

The daughter of Sebring (More Than Ready) will be looking to bounce back from her six place finish in the HC Nitschke Stakes (Listed, 1400m) when she lines up in the Listed race. 

"It looks the right sort of race for her," Sam Freedman said. 

"Her run in the Thousand Guineas (1600m) was good and she had some of the fastest closing sectionals there, so I think the mile really suits.

"It's always hard to take on the boys in these sort of races and, if Cherry Tortoni brings his best form, he's probably the one to beat," Freedman said.

"Even a horse like Embolism, they've competed at some of the biggest three-year-old races around, so I suppose it's a mix of which horses are being set for this race."

While nothing is set in concrete, this will almost certainly be the final run of Agreeable's preparation as the stable shifts focus to a spring campaign.

"She's a fairly lightly framed filly and, after this trip to Adelaide, I suspect she might be ready for a break," Freedman said.
