TRAINING Mark Newnham took the heart of the exquisite Brut Derby Pattern while evaluating the chances of his Greysful Glamor breast in the $ 1 million Kennedy Victoria Oaks (2500m) in Flemington.
Graysful Glamor goes to the classic Thursday after the impressive victory in the Oaks process before completing the seventh in Ethereal Stakes at Caulfieldu.
Newnham, who trained his first winner in group 1 with Maid Of Heaven in last month's Spring Stakes, is convinced that Greysful Glamor will appreciate the return to the greater Flemington's Victoria Oaks trail.

Big day: SYDNEY'S MESSY MELBOURNE CUP
"They will have to go back to the big track," Newnham said. "Her best rides were in Flemington, Newcastle, and Randwick."
Greyedful Glamourous is similar to Extra Brut, the victorious Victory of Derby last Saturday.
Extra Brut, who was trained by Darren Weir, had Derby's lead game on the same day as the last performance of the Greysful Glamoura, winning UCI Stakes at Flemington and then dropping out of Caulfield Classica when he was sixth for Thinkin & # 39; Big.
"I think the key is Flemington," Newnham said. "Extra Brut obviously appreciated the bigger song when he won Derby and I hope this will be the same for Greyedful Glamor.
"I do not worry about my footsteps at 2500 feet. She's very well grown on her hips, she's relaxed, she will not pull back and save her energy.
"It does not matter if she is running, since she is so relaxed, she is not going to get there and overcome it.
Greysful Glamor is forgotten Oaksa sandals, with TAB Fixed Odds, betting $ 16 for her. The only other Sydney-trained trunk in the race was John Sargent's Miss Moana at $ 23.
Sargent scolds his other Victoria Oaks after winning the classic with Kirramos in 2013.
Weir, Melbourne's premier coach, has a strong hand with Amphitrite's $ 3 favorite, stable friend Verry Elleegant at $ 5, and Zapurler at $ 12.
Aristia, trained by Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra, amounts to $ 4 while trying to become 36th filly to complete the double Wakeful Stakes-Victoria Oaks.
Joke Michelle Payne, who won the Penzance Championship in Melbourne Cupa in 2015, hopes to once again play the lead role at Oxford's quest for a minersman trained by her father, Paddy Payne.
