Don't Doubt Mamma delivered the Tony McEvoy stable a Group 2 double in thrilling fashion at Moonee Valley on Friday night, and stamped her ticket to the Group 1 Myer Classic.
Moonee Valley was rare territory for the four-year-old mare having her second start at the track, but the winning post certainly wasn't - it was her seventh career win in 16 starts.
And Dwayne Dunn, on board for four of them now, heads back to the place he'd earned the previous three wins on her - Flemington - for a crack at the $500,000 Classic.
"It's her race," McEvoy said of the Myer.
"We discussed it at length [about the Toorak Handicap option] - I'm very keen to get some weight off her at the elite level.
"As you can see, she's not a very big mare.
"We thought about it - we thought weight-for-age against mares, mile here [at the Valley]. Let's have a look at her at the mile against her own sex.
"The Myer's her race. It's a big Group 1, against the mares, and she probably won't run before it."
The Group 1 open handicaps are definitely still on McEvoy's radar in the future with the impressing daughter of Not a Single Doubt.
"I'd love to get her into a handicap with no weight one day," he added.
