The John Sadler stable unveiled its latest smart prospect when Melted made an impressive public debut at Monday’s Cranbourne trials. Sadler is holding the fort at Romsey until Leon Corstens returns from a six-month drug suspension but Team Corstens has still managed to produce well-performed two-year-olds this season.

Melted is by Redoute’s Choice out of the New Zealand Group II winner Raspberry Ripple but failed to reach her reserve at the 2009 Inglis Easter Yearling Sale.

The filly’s breeder, Highgrove Stud’s Ron Gilbert, retained the juvenile and Melted showed she will pay her way with a narrow, but strong, trial win in the fastest two-year-old time of the morning.

Melted clocked 48.35 seconds to be nearly half a second quicker than the next best heat which was taken out by the Mick Pricetrained Bellantina in 48.72 seconds.
