Star harness racing mare El Jay's Magic looks set for another big season following her impressive first-up win in the $10,000 Ella Coulson Cannonball Charge (1609m) at Ubet Park, Hobart.

El Jay's Magic was resuming from a four-month spell but made light of the task as she faced the breeze outside of the leader Run Ripalong and when driver Erin Hollaway called on the mare to extend turning for home she sped clear and went on to win decisively.

El Jays Magic was last season's best performed mare and her trainer Grant Hodges said she was destined for a big 2015-16 season if she did well during her break.

It was clear after she demolished her opposition tonight that she had done well during her spell and she looks set to be aimed at the George Johnson and possibly another interstate trip to tackle some feature mares' races.

She clocked a mile rate of 1.57.01 and did it comfortably in defeating All I Cab Be that tried hard in the home straight with Star Chamber coming from last to grab third just in advance of Jukebox Music.
