“I don’t know if she will get 1600 metres or not but she switches off like she’d run it and Larry gives me a lot of faith,” Schweida said.
“He’s no fool and has ridden more than 40 Group 1s while I’ve only trained two.
“He thought she would win the Dalrello after doing the form and that was after she only had one jump out.”
Schweida was disappointed with barrier 12 for Miss Hipstar, who has shown her versatility by leading or sitting off the pace in some of her wins.
“She’s going good and I haven’t had to do a lot with her after she won the Dalrello,” he said.
“But I’m very disappointed with her draw, if you get caught three deep around Doomben you’re no chance.
“I want to see her race well but I wouldn’t like her to have a gut buster ahead of the Sires’ Produce.
“She’ll run in the Sires’ then we’ll re-assess her to see if she goes to the J.J. Atkins.”
Miss Hipstar was bred by Basil Nolan at Raheen Stud and is the first horse Schweida has trained for the famous Darling Downs breeder.
