EXCITING Horsham filly May's Dream will return to racing at Moonee Valley on Friday night.
The three-year-old daughter of New Approach and She's Archie had a standout spring, finishing second to Guelph in the Group 1 Thousand Guineas at Caulfield in October before contesting the $1 million Crown Oaks at Flemington in November.
May's Dream - who is owned by Horsham's Dunn family and a syndicate from the White Hart Hotel - will tackle the $80,000 1Print.com.au Kerry Gillespie Premium Handicap over 1200 metres.
Owner Celeste Patterson said May's Dream's connections were excited to see her resume.
"We're not expecting too much as she has a big weight on her," she said.
"It's great that Harry Coffey is riding her as mum and dad have known his father Austy for a long time."
The top weight, May's Dream will carry 58 kilograms after Coffey's three-kilogram apprentice claim.
She will jump from barrier four and was yesterday installed as favourite on the TAB at fixed odds of $3.40.
Colin Little's unbeaten Soosa Rama was on the second line of betting at $4.60, followed by Ciaron Maher's dual stakes place-getter Chloe in Paris at $6.
Trainer Darren Weir told RSN earlier this week May's Dream had improved significantly since her spring campaign.
"Towards the end of the spring she looked a bit ordinary to be honest, she looked very light but she's had a great break and has really furnished into a nice filly now," he said.
"She's strengthened up, she looks terrific and I'm sure she's in for a great preparation.
"I'm really looking forward to it."
The 1Print.com.au handicap is the final race on the eight-race card and will jump at 10.15pm.
