Carmela Miss ready to go back to back at Lismore Turf Club this Saturday 7th June 2014

By Tony White

After a breakthrough win last start following a long run of outs trainer Hunter Kilner is hopeful Carmela Miss can go back to back at Lismore tomorrow.

The four-year-old mare tackles the James Duffy Chiropractic Benchmark 50 Hcp over 1300m.

Carmela Miss won her first start in a race in March 2012 but had to endure another 24 starts before recording her second win over 1200m at Lismore on May 24.

“She had a long run of outs after winning her first start but hopefully now she’s won again she can turn it all around,” Grafton based Kilner said. “It was a good win last start. She got lucky runs through them and won but her form leading up to that had been very consistent with three second’s and a miss.”

Carmela Miss, owned outright by Kilner, has an overall record of two wins and six placing’s from 25 starts.

“She’s a pretty little thing. A chestnut with a golden mane and tail,” Kilner said. “And she’s got a bit of attitude too like a lot of the Dr Green’s.”

Carmela Miss was ridden by Matt Paget last start but leading apprentice Jodi Worley takes over the reins tomorrow, her 2kg claim reducing Carmela Miss’s weight to 53.5kg.

“She comes in well at the weights,” Kilner said. “She’s drawn a lot better tomorrow than last start when she was slowly away.

“Hopefully she can jump a bit better and race handier.

“She pulled up as good as gold after last start and her work’s been good. She’s been working along like her usual self.

“I’m as happy as can be with her.”

Kilner will also saddle up Zappa The Rockstar in the Pacific Farms Macadamias Class 2 Hcp (1400m).

“He’s been leading lately which I haven’t really wanted and not finishing off his races as I would have liked,” Kilner said. “But at Lismore he might just have to go forward again.

“I’ve got a new jockey on (Priscilla Schmidt). Hopefully she can make a difference.”
