Last season's Gr.1 Australian Oaks winner will appreciate the step back up to 2000 metres following her last-start fifth in the Gr.1 New Zealand Thoroughbred Breeders' Stakes.

"Bringing her back to the mile was probably asking a bit much the other day," said Bruce Perry, racing manager to owner Lib Petagna, whose colours were also recently carried to victory by debutant Newton.

The Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman-trained Authorized three-year-old was a first-up winner at Pukekohe over a mile. His continued progress could earn him a trip to Brisbane for the Gr.1 Queensland Derby.
