Cliff Brown wouldn’t mind a stable full of horses like debut winner Moe Little Miss Kubi.
The three-year-old daughter of Headwater heads to town for start number two on Saturday when she races in the Ladbrokes Plate (1200m) at Moonee Valley.
Little Miss Kubi powered through heavy ground at Moe earlier in the month to record 2-¾ lengths and Brown hopes the filly can keep her record intact.
Brown said little Miss Kubi was just going about her business in the stable without causing any commotion.
“He’s the quiet little horse in his box that never causes any grief and just goes about his business and eating,” Brown said.
“It wasn’t until her first jump that we thought she was fine and thought she might have something.
“It would be fantastic to have a stable full of horses like her.
Brown said Little Miss Kubi went about her work at Moe over 1000m in professional fashion and was looking forward to going up against stronger opposition on Saturday.
One thing Brown does know is that little Miss Kubi likes wet ground, and if the predicted rain on Thursday, Friday and Saturday actually arrives, that will boost her chances.
“I don’t really know where he sits,” Brown said.
“You can’t do much more than win on debut. She was good, really good, and we’ll get to know a little more about her after this.’
Little Miss Kubi is also entered in Sunday’s Benchmark 64 three-year-old handicap sale.
“I’ll also accept in Sale, just in case it’s weaker or Hard 10,” Brown said.
“He loves the hard track.
Punters betting early on the Moonee Valley program liked Little Miss Kubi’s first win, which firmed from $5 to $4 at the TAB.
