Aided by an excellent ride, the horse put his best foot forward to get the cash at Rwick on Sat.
Only just missed the start and tracked into the race behind the favourite before peeling to the outside, where he prefers to unwind and indeed where the best going was on Sat, and powering home to win. As with his W.Farm victory, the horse wanted to bludge a bit when he ranged alongside the leader 100ms out but a couple of smacks around the behind sent him racing clear.
Great to see him run out a strong 1550ms, handle open company and get through the ground (officially a Slow 6 but considered worse than that by the jocks). He now has a strong 33% win rate and will hopefully build on that in the near future.
Has pulled up in great order and I saw him this morning going for a long ride around the Georges River….his standard post race routine. We’ve earmarked two races for him to complete this prep. Sat week at W.Farm an Open 1600ms and a fortnight later a 1600ms Open at R’wick.
