The connections of Australasia's best racemare Sunline have confirmed the dual Cox Plate winner will resume racing at Te Rapa on Saturday week.

Connections are believed the be swaying to the local race because it is a Group One event, whereas the other possible race a week later in Sydney, the Apollo Stakes, in only at Group Two level.

Sunline is expected to have her final serious hit out for the Waikato Draught Sprint at her home track of Takanini next Tuesday morning.

Laxon told Sport927 this morning the mare, with regular race rider Scott Seamer in the saddle, worked "extremely well" and she was pleased with the mare's progress.

"She seems to have come back bigger and strong and much better than last year. I could be a bit biased though," Laxon said.

Having the two mares clash in the race would be a promoter's dream. They are clearly the country's two best mares having proven themselves on both sides of the Tasman in recent times.

Laxon also added she and Seamer will travel to Dubai in the next couple of weeks to examine the conditions and weigh up the possibilities of sending the mare for a race on World Cup Day at Nad al Sheba.

PICS - Quentin Lang.
