Sunday 01 January 2017

Race 10: Lim's Stable Stakes Class 3 - 1400m
Horse no: 1
Time: 5.25 PM
Jockey: APP S SHAFRIZAL -2 (57kg)

Denman (AUS) x Morinda (AUS) 5yo gelding. Had a brief freshen up after his last start and resumed full training in early December. He looks well and James is pleased with his recent work. He's back down to Class 3 grade which should help. It looks a strong race on paper but he's drawn a good barrier 3 and with a 2kg claim we're hoping for a good run.

Race 11: Prosperity 2017 Stakes Class 4 - 1400m
Horse no: 10
Time: 5.55 PM
Jockey: M KELLADY (54.5kg)

Mastercraftsman (IRE) x All Night Party (NZ) 5yo gelding. Started back into fast work after a break in November. He had a soft trial last week which James was happy with. He was always a bit unlucky in running last year and again we've drawn a bad barrier in 11. We'll ride for luck and hopefully he'll finish off well.

Monday 02 January 2017

Race 5: Class 4 - 1200m
Horse no: 2
Time: 2.50 PM
Jockey: V DURIC (58kg)

Charge Forward (AUS) x Mozambique (AUS) 3yo gelding. Nice and bright around the stable and in good physical condition. He won his last race start easily with Vlad Duric on board, and trialled well just over a week ago. He's drawn a decent barrier in 7. There are a few other frontrunners in the race and if we can get into a box seat position behind the leaders it should be perfect. On paper it looks a nice race for him and we're hoping for another win.

Race 7: Class 3 - 1200m
Horse no: 4
Time: 3.55 PM
Jockey: V DURIC (54.5kg)

Darci Brahma (NZ) x State Circus (GB) 4yo gelding. He's nice and fresh and has been working well on the training track throughout December. James was pleased with his trial last week and he's drawn a nice inside barrier with barrier 4. The 1200m trip is sometimes a bit sharp for him and we expect him to get back in the field but he should finish off strongly.
