Jason McLachlan has a high opinion of Fusil De Eve but is happy to keep the filly in Queensland next season.
Fusil De Eve scored an emotional win at the Sunshine Coast last start when she took out a race named after the trainer's late father Bruce on the Caloundra Cup program.
The two-year-old will be out to end her campaign in style in Saturday's Hamilton Hotel Handicap (1500m) at Eagle Farm.
"She continues to improve and is a nice filly," McLachlan said.
"It was a strong win last start and she was just too good for them.
"I think she could beat them again but she's got 58 kilos which is a bit of weight and she's not a big filly."
McLachlan said there was no plans for a southern spring campaign for the daughter of Chateau Istana who has won her past two starts on her home track at the Sunshine Coast.
Instead the filly will remain in Queensland with QTIS bonus money on offer during her two and three-year-old seasons.
"She's a QTIS horse so there are no spring plans," McLachlan said.
"There are races up here for her where she can race for $74,000 so we'll stay at home."
Fusil De Eve steps up to 1500m for the first time on Saturday but McLachlan holds few fears the filly will see out the trip.
"She'll run a mile (1600m)," he said.
"She's a tough little thing. She gets through the wet too which will help her.
"This will probably be her last run (of the campaign). She had that hard run on the heavy track last start so she'll go for a break after this and then we'll bring her back."
