TRAINER John Luttrell has accepted with five horses for the Tapeta Footings 3YO at Spreyton on Sunday but expects to start only two.
``Geegees Hot Hussie and Gee Gees Style will both run, but at this stage I'm looking elsewhere with the others,'' Luttrell said.
``Geegees Velvet trialled brilliantly on Tuesday but I'll probably save her for a class 1 race at Elwick next week.
``Gee Gee Black Fury probably needs further than 1000 metres, so he most likely will wait for a race at Mowbray on October 23.
``The other filly, Gee Gees Prairie, is not as good as the others and might need a wet track.''
Despite cutting back his numbers, Luttrell is still fairly confident that he can win the race.
``Geegees Hot Hussie and Gee Gees Style are really good, strong three-year-olds,'' he said.
``I expect them both to run very well.
``If I had to separate them, I'd go for Geegees Hot Hussie.
``She has come back in great order and trialled really well against older horses on Tuesday.
``(Jockey) David Pires is very happy with her.
``She has a brilliant turn of foot.''
Gee Gees Style was the only horse last season to lower the colours of star two-year-old Grand Tycoon, when he snuck home by a neck in the $30,000 Autumn 2YO Classic at Elwick in April.
The Luttrell runners won't get everything their own way on Sunday, as the field has several other promising youngsters, including last-start winners Prickly Diamonds and Iggimacool.
Apprentice Millie Whitehouse-Summers will have her first race rides at Spreyton on Sunday.
She has been booked for La Bretta, Bring Me Sunshine and Mum Bought A Horse.
Whitehouse-Summers is apprenticed to local trainer Adam Trinder and has impressed at the trials.
