There’s a first time for everything and today we could see it happen with GOODONYA SONJA and she shoots for back-to-back victories for the first time. Trained across the road (Eagle Farm) by Lindsay Gough, the Captain Sonador mare is in good touch of late, winning two of her past three runs. She came off two unplaced runs (in Listed company) and took on a Class 3 at Beaudesert where she proved too good in the 1100m contest. The five-year-old then returned to Doomben and had no luck at all in a harder BM75 affair where she ran into dead ends everywhere and lost momentum in the run home. Last start she was back here in an easier Class 4 and with Brad Stewart back in the saddle, she was ridden closer to the speed and avoiding any trouble, she proved too good in the run home. She maps well here from gate five and with Stewart remaining aboard, should be on the speed again, slipstreaming the leaders again. She is a two-time winner at the track and trip and Stewart is two from two with the mare. In winning form, she should prove hard to beat again.
