Climate Change helps

The green grass of home could produce a vastly improved result for local filly Climate Change in Saturday's Mornington Sires (1200m).

Climate Change has already raced in Sydney and Adelaide but will compete on her home track for the first time in Saturday's $150,000 contest.

A trip to Adelaide went awry after Climate Change was caught wide when fourth in a Listed race on April 6.

"She sat three-deep facing the breeze and had no luck from the draw," her trainer Shane Nichols said.

"I think she acquitted herself quite well. She was going to run seventh of eighth at the furlong but she toughed it out well."

Nichols said a gallop at Mornington on Tuesday morning showed Climate Change had taken no harm from her tough effort first-up in Adelaide.

"She had a good gallop this morning, really good, so she's done well in that run." he said.

Nichols said Climate Change wasn't a top-class two-year-old but she had the ability to be competitive in Saturday company, especially over the 1200m of her next assignment.

He added the barrier draw would be crucial to Climate Change's hopes of a second win at her fourth start.

"She's a nice filly," he said.

"She ran fourth in a stakes race but she wasn't a Blue Diamond filly or a horse of that quality.

"She'd have to draw well on Saturday. It's a difficult race on the nominations so it will be interesting to see how it comes up."
