A TRIP up the highway has done the trick in providing consistent mare Buffy with a confidence-boosting win.
After being thereabouts without winning in recent starts, the decision was made to duck the five-year-old up to Rockhampton for a Class 3 (1200m) on Thursday, August 29.
She found the road trip and the easier company to her liking, winning easily by more than three lengths after starting $2.35 favourite. 
"It was great to see her back in the winner's stall,'' said trainer Stuart Kendrick.
"She has been unlucky in her last few runs and hopefully this will give her the confidence she needs,'' he said.
"She was well handled by comeback jockey Adam Sewell."
If was Buffy's third win from eighteen career starts. She's also been placed on eight occasions, including six as runner-up.
