Track conditions will determine where the unbeaten filly Romantic Maid steps out this weekend.

Cambridge trainer Roger James is keeping his options open with the exciting three-year-old daughter of High Chaparral.

"She'll be nominated for the mile at Auckland and for the Manawatu Classic [2000m] at Awapuni with the weather to dictate where we go," he said.

Romantic Maid has been untested to win both her starts on good tracks at Avondale and at Te Rapa.


James is keen to get the filly to the Brisbane winter carnival.

"She's owned in Queensland and longer-term I'd like to get her to a race like the Doomben Roses ... and possibly the Oaks over there," he said.
