The training career of Aaron Bain looks to be on the way up.

Bain came away with two winners at Globe Derby Park on Friday and Saturday, then followed up with another victory at Mildura on Sunday.

Stable foreman Paul Tonkin said a virus had affected the stable recently, but they were looking forward to a good run over the next few months.

“We have a good team in work, and hopefully the winners this weekend are the start of many more,” Tonkin said.

On Friday, talented three-year-old filly La Machnificent was superb in winning at Globe Derby Park, then backed up on Sunday at Mildura with another easy win.

On Saturday, it was Just Seduce Me which dominated with a comfortable win at Globe Derby Park.

La Machnificent, a filly bred by Graeme Lang in Victoria, continues to improve.

In the SAHRC 3YO Fillies heat (2230m) on Friday, the daughter of Mach Three started a $2.40 favourite and driver Ken Rogers had no hesitation sitting parked outside former New Zealander The Shooting Star ($3) having her first start for Les Harding.

Danielle Hill, on The Shooting Star ran a 61.4 second first half before sprinting up a 27.7 second third quarter.

Despite sitting parked, La Machnificent matched her rival, then dashed clear as Rogers asked her to go for home.

La Machnificent cruised away to win by seven metres from The Shooting Star, with Bobbies Delight ($4), eight metres away third.

The filly went to Mildura on Sunday and came from gate eight as a $3.10 chance and ran out a one metre win of the Ray and Grace Hepworth Memorial heat one rating 2:01.8 beating Majadore.

La Machnificent will be back at Globe Derby Park this week to contest the $10,000 final of the SA Fillies event.

The filly has built up an imposing record of 10 wins, a second and a third from just 13 starts.

On Saturday, Just Seduce Me ($2.70 fav) began smartly to cross and lead from gate five to run out a comfortable five metre winner of the SA BOTRA Mares Heat (2230m).

With Ken Rogers in the sulky, Just Seduce Me did over-race early but then settled and never looked in danger.

Stylish Icon ($8.10) and Canelliesparkle ($10.60) deadheated for second but never looked a winning possibility.

Just Seduce Me has won six races since coming to South Australia midway through last year.
