 Mike Moroney looks to have a useful filly on his hands after the winning debut of Slinky Veeness in Sunday's John Duff & Co Fillies and Mares Maiden Plate (1200m) at Cranbourne.

Slinky Veeness, a drifter from $8 to $9 on course, jumped straight to the front from barrier 11 in a field of 13 and was never headed, extending in the straight to record a comfortable 4¼-length win from the Matt Laurie-trained Gaily Mill ($6.50) and the Heath Conners-trained Belcrest Lady ($11).

By the rising Kiwi stallion Guillotine, Slinky Veeness was a $NZ70,000 purchase at the Karaka Select yearling sale. She is out of the stakes-winning Danehill Dancer sprinter Slinky Planet, whose two winners from four runners include Adelaide metro winner Simply Boogie.

Slinky Veeness races in the colours of Iskander Racing and was ridden on Sunday by Damian Lane, who described her as a "smart filly".

"She flew the gates and took it up from a wide alley," he told TVN's Shane Templeton. "I had to use a bit of petrol early but she switched off well underneath me.

"She was probably just floating along in front but once I asked for an effort she really let go.

"She's very green still so there's a lot of improvement. She's only going to get better and I'd say she's city-class for sure."
