Aliferous Wins On Debut At Newcastle
Aliferous lived right up to her name which means "to have wings" in her win on debut at Newcastle.
Given a patient ride by Mitchell Bell, Aliferous flew home in the concluding stages to win running away by just under a length.
Trainer Kris Lees has a high opinion of the Hinchinbrook filly, believing that she will be better suited over a distance greater than Saturday's 1200 metres.
Aliferous next start is likely to be in the city depending on finding a suitable race for her.
A great thrill for her patient bunch of Hearts Racing owners.
