Cavente heads list of lightly raced improvers

Coffs Harbour hosts an exciting card on Thursday with multiple lightly raced improvers engaged, none fitting that bill better than three-year-old Cavente.

The John Sprague-trained galloper contests the Moonee Beach Hotel F&M Showcase Maiden Handicap (1000m) and is poised to break through for her maiden win.

Racing heads to Coffs Harbour on Thursday.

The filly saw a dry track for the first time at Port Macquarie when first-up and was heavily backed late in the trade $12-$6.50.

She chased a fast tempo throughout and tried hard to hold on for third place.

Further, there was a considerable margin to fourth, and the form has since been confirmed with a subsequent winner coming of the race.

She is still learning and must contend with a tricky draw, but if she gets luck expect her to be hard to hold out.

Miss Statement looms as a key danger and is ready to peak fourth up with a more favourable set-up.

The Kris Lees-trained galloper led at a fast pace and battled on well when running second at Quirindi last start.

In addition, that race rated highly relative to the day, and the mare will appreciate a drier surface.
