Trainer David Brideoake will wait until after Saturday’s Gr.3 Adrian Knox Stakes (2000m) to decide the next step for talented filly Princess Jenni who makes her Sydney debut at Randwick.

Princess Jenni finished strongly to win the Gr.3 Alexandra Stakes (1600m) at Moonee Valley in Melbourne on March 22 in the second start of her autumn campaign.

The three-year-old steps up to 2000m for the first time in Saturday's Adrian Knox against her own age and sex and has top weight of 59kg.

"I thought it was a really good run at The Valley and she has trained on and had a couple of good weeks since," Brideoake said.

"She will travel to Sydney, she's drawn a nice barrier (four) and as long as she travels OK I'm happy with the way she will present on Saturday.

"For the past month and a half this has probably been our plan and we think it's an ideal race for her."

The Gr.1 ATC Australian Oaks (2400m) at Randwick is a week after the Adrian Knox.

"We're going to just take one race at a time," Brideoake said.

"Depending on how she goes, we'll make that call on the Oaks then.”
