Friday 03 February 2017

Race 3: Class 4 - 1400m
Horse no: 1
Time: 7.20 PM
Jockey: G BOSS (58kg)

More Than Ready (US) x Unspoken Choice (AUS) 4yo gelding. He looks good and has been working well. He did some nice work on the training track and Glen Boss was very pleased with his performance. We've got blinkers and a tongue tie on for the first time and we jump from barrier 6. The race on paper doesn't look like it has too much speed; we'll hopefully begin well from the gates and race near the front. Stepping up to 1400m will suit him, and we're hopeful for better result this time. 


Sunday 05 February 2017

Race 2: Restricted Maiden - 1400m
Horse no: 6
Time: 1.20 PM
Jockey: V DURIC (57kg)

Darci Brahma (NZ) x Savamour (NZ) 3yo gelding. He's in good condition and is working nicely. Vlad rode him earlier in the week and was pleased with the way he's moving and feeling. Jumping from barrier 7 of 8 we're going to try to ride him nice and positive and in a forward position and leave it to Vlad to ride his race. 1400 suits him and he's a better turf horse, so we're hopeful of positive run.

Race 5: Open Benchmark 97 - 1000m
Horse no: 8
Time: 2.50 PM
Jockey: D DAVID (50.5kg)

Lucky Owners (NZ) x Bumpa (AUS) 5yo gelding. He's come through last week's barrier trial well and he's fit, fresh and in good condition for his first-up run. The race looks fast upfront on paper; jumping from barrier 7 hopefully he'll find his feet early and travel wherever he's happy. We'll try to get him to the outside for some clear galloping room and hopefully we'll have a nice positive showing from this outing.
