An eye catcher at both runs back to start this preparation, she proceeded to take a good step forward last start, when far too good at Randwick over 1300m.
Returning a new career peak, she is back better than ever and while up in grade, she appears very well treated at the weights.
Always need a touch of luck with backmarkers, but if she gets clear air, she looks to good for them.
Generally any horse that has more than 500 days off, they are a terrible betting proposition.
I haven't ran up the numbers in a while, but I remember doing it a few years back and I've tried to avoid them ever since.
But like most rules, there are exceptions, hopefully that being Rosina Kojonup on Saturday.
Not seen since finishing a close fifth in the 2018 Gosford Guineas [1200m], she returns from arthroscopic surgery to her near fore knee (568 day break)
The little sister to She Will Reign, Rosina Kojonup has won two of her four career starts and has displayed good ability in the process.
I didn't even realise she was back until I watched her trial last week (I was watching it for Noble Boy - bless him) and I put her straight in my blackbook.
They rarely trial any better and I love the set up for her on Saturday.
This looks to be the sweet spot and while she may lack a bit of match practice, she should get every chance.
Intrigued to see what the market does with her, either way I'm happy to be holding a ticket, she is certainly good enough.
