Boynton chases big payday with filly

BENDIGO trainer Peter Boynton will chase the biggest win of his career when Attenti Alla Bella lines up in Wednesday's $250,000 Inglis Premier (1200m) at Mornington.

The two-year-old filly is having her second career start after running an unlucky seventh on debut at Moonee Valley.

"On face value she might have looked a bit disappointing at the Valley, but not a lot went right,'' Boynton said.

"She drew wide and had to go back in the field to get in.

"She copped a bump and never got into the race.

"She's improved from that run and I expect her to run a better race this time around.

"It's a good chance for her to pick up some nice prizemoney."

Boynton purchased Attenti Alla Bella for $16,000 at last year's Inglis Premier Yearling Sales in Melbourne.

"I really liked the look of her,'' Boynton said.

"She looked like a real running type and she's got a good temperament.

"She's grown quite a bit this preparation and I'm looking forward to getting her back as a three-year-old."

Attenti Alla Bella hasn't been well helped by the barrier draw.

 In a hot field, which includes unbeaten Sydney visitor Modoc, Attenti Alla Bella has drawn the outside barrier in the field of 12.

"We've drawn a horror gate, but I think we'll be more positive this time around,'' Boynton said.

"Hopefully, we can slot in and get a nice run into the race.

"I'm confident she'll run a better race.

"No matter what she does at Mornington she'll go out for a spell."
