SMART mare Acacia Bloom scored an impressive win in a class two handicap over 1200 metres in Launceston tonight prompting trainer Scott Brunton to suggest she could be aimed at upcoming feature mares' races

Acacia Bloom (David Pires) was freshened up for her latest assignment having been sidelined because of a seasonal complaint.

But the four-year-old presented well and in the end gave her rivals a galloping lesson over the concluding stages.

"We have always believed this mare had a bit of class about here and she again proved her versatility tonight," Brunton said.

"We will probably have a look at a couple of feature mares races in the next few weeks and then we might step her out to a mile (1600m) or beyond but it will depend on how she is after her next couple of runs," he said.

Acacia Bloom has started only 12 times for three wins and four minor placings for $35,000 in stakes.

"This mare has been very consistent and that shows in her stats," he said.
