Trainer Mick Tubman says he has no firm target for stable star Bye See, but he intends to bring the four-year-old back from a short break in time for the autumn. 

Tubman sent Bye See to the paddock after the mare’s impressive win at Rosehill Gardens back on February 3.

He told The Punt he will give his daughter of flying machine Chance Bye ‘three or four weeks’ break before bringing the Sebring mare back to tackle bigger races.

"She can go wherever we want to go," Tubman said. 

"We will just play with her [schedule] when she gets back but nothing is set in stone at the moment.

"She is a pretty promising mare."

Tubman has already tested Bye See in black type company once last preparation.

As a three-year-old, Bye See finished at the rear of the field in the finished at the rear of the field in the Group 3 Hawkesbury Guineas but was sent to the paddock immediately after.

She has returned a stronger horse this preparation, with two wins and two placings from four starts.

Tubman also had success on Tuesday at Hawkesbury when Old Man Sam proved too strong in the Blakes Marine Provincial Sprint Class 4 Handicap (1100m).

Apprentice Rachel Hunt sat off the speed in a small field before unleashing a powerful sprint, putting a 1-½ length gap on Never Out. Cockles was a further three lengths away in third.
