Cambridge trainer Ross McCarroll has black-type aims for his four-year-old mare Calligraphy after she toyed with her rivals in a Benchmark 75 at Tauranga on Thursday.

Returning from a brief let-up, Calligraphy was prominent throughout under apprentice Sam Weatherley and always travelling like the winner.

"She showed a really good turn of foot and I thought she was impressive," McCarroll said.

"She was getting a bit tired towards the end of her last preparation and we gave her three weeks off. She has come back much better."

Calligraphy has fashioned a good record of four wins and four placings from just 11 starts.

"While she is well, we have to have a go at black-type."

The Gr.3 Classic Cuisine Rotorua Stakes (1400m) on May 13 is a likely target for the daughter of Perfectly Ready.
