Mystic Journey begins Cox Plate preparation

Tasmanian superstar Mystic Journey has hit the trial track as her preparation towards a tilt at the Cox Plate begins.

All Star Mile winner Mystic Journey impressed on the trial track this morning.
Inaugural All Star Mile winner Mystic Journey has made her first steps towards the 2019 Cox Plate after a successful return to the trial track on Tuesday morning.

The $5 favourite for this year's Cox Plate at online bookmaker BetEasy stepped out on the Devonport synthetic track for her first hit out since claiming the 2019 All Star Mile and suitably impressed, winning her trial with ease.

Racing over an 800m journey, well short of the filly's ideal trip, Mystic Journey didn't have to exert much energy to breeze past the field, recording a 33.51-second final 600m, which caller Duncan Dornauf as 'one of the better times that we have seen at the trials'. 

She enjoyed a one length margin on the line to Century Arrow, a horse with a 75 rating which has six wins to his name from 22 starts.

Now the first trial is out of the way all eyes shift to what's next for the Tasmanian prodigy.

Adam Trinder has stated in the past that the Group Three Bletchingly Stakes at Caulfield in late July as his first-up option, providing track conditions to suit. 

Three Group One contests including Memsie and Makybe Diva Stakes as well as the Turnbull Stakes will also be on the agenda prior to the $5 million Cox Plate.
