"The fact she's shown she can run the mile gives her more scope."
The winner of more than $200,000, Massuri had previously raced over 1560m but in easier company in Mackay where she finished fourth in a small field.

09.05.13 CASA DEL FUEGO has promised to break his maiden on a few occasions to date, but the step up to 2100m was the key to getting him across the line in the Moneywise Financial Solutions Maiden Handicap today at Wyong. From the inside barrier, CASA DEL FUEGO was put to sleep midfield by Kathy O'Hara. She had been unlucky on the gelding two starts previous, but rode the perfect race, as CASA DEL FUEGO ran away from his opposition to post a strong 1.5 length victory.
