Graceful Anna is set to make a return to racing after a six month spell due to a strained suspensory ligament in the near hind leg.

David Pfieffer, Graceful Anna’s trainer, is convinced of his horses ability to perform after winning her barrier trial at Rosehill on January 4, 2011.

”I will use this race as a guide with her but I think she will be well suited in those black-type mares’ races.

”There is a good program of them, and if she shows she is up to it, I think the Robert Sangster Stakes in Adelaide, being a group 1, would be a good target,” Mr Pfieffer said.

Tom Hugh’s four-year-old mare Miss Octopussy is also being aimed at the 2011 Robert Sangster Stakes.

“She’s entitled to have a go at the Robert Sangster,” Mr Hugh said.

“She’ll be the fresh horse on the scene as she’s had four runs in four months.”

Betting options will be available closer to the nomination date at Luxbet.
