Dual licensed Tasmanian horsewoman Siggy Carr admits excitement is the reason why she isn't riding at The Valley on Friday night.
The jockey/trainer will have her first Victorian metropolitan runners on Friday night and the nerves surrounding that feat are enough to keep her out of the saddle.
"It's that exciting that I decided I didn't want to ride them myself," Carr said with a laugh.
"I thought I'd just enjoy the moment of having the runners (at the races) and put the big guns on."
Carr takes a team of in-form horses to The Valley, with Coronation Glade ($8 Sportsbet) stepping out over 2040m, Bandinelli ($13) in the 955m Challenge and Hannah's Song ($7) in the last over 1200m.
Coronation Glade and Bandinelli have won their past three starts, while Hannah's Song won three on the trot before finishing second last start.
All three were moderate purchases, with Carr's magic touch able to turn their form around.
"Coronation Glade, the three runs he's had for us, he's won all three," Carr said.
"We feel he is stepping up to the 2000m at the right time. We lack those types of races at home.
"The stable is just absolutely flying. Scott Brunton gave me 12 yards down at Seven Mile Beach, so we have been alternating the horses between there and my Brighton training complex.
"It has been the turning table for the horses, having both set-ups and being able to turn them around. Having the beach is amazing for them and I think that's why those older horses have found form."
