​The Week Ahead FEB 11-17: KYLEASE with hoof on till!

Feb 11, 2019

Promising filly KYLEASE will be out to go one better than her debut when she heads to Gosford on Tuesday.

The Joe Pride-trained daughter of CHOISIR narrowly went down in a two-horse war on her home track of Warwick Farm last month, defeating the third-placed runner by almost four lengths. 

The three-year-old filly is expected to atone coming back to provincial grade but it's always hard to declare a maiden until they win!


Upcoming Proven Thoroughbreds runners:

Gosford Tuesday February 12:

Maiden 1100m

  KYLEASE

Joe Pride/Corey Brown

Comment: Gallant in defeat on debut at Warwick Farm last start. Free-running type and should find this much easier.


Grafton Friday February 15:

BM58 1600m

WAS IT WORTH IT

Steve O'Dea/Anthony Allen

Comment: Gets his chance to record an overdue win coming back in distance and grade. Can win with luck in running.

F&M C1 1400m

TOO HOT TO HOLD

Steve O'Dea/Anthony Allen

Comment: Excellent first-up run at the Gold Coast when beaten only half a length over 1200m. Extra distance has her right in the mix.

Maiden 1700m

MISSED THE ALARM

Steve O'Dea/Anthony Allen

Comment: Looks beautifully placed up to a distance in which she is expected to flourish. Should take some beating if she jumps on terms.


Canterbury Friday February 15:

BM76 1100m

 SO SPIRITED

Joe Pride/Jay Ford

Comment: Stays at 1100m after encouraging first-up run in unsuitable conditions. May be looking for further now but going well.


Doomben Saturday February 16:

1MW Handicap 1200m

 SCALLOPINI

Steve O’Dea/Ron Stewart

Comment: Scratched last start due to foot abscess. Trialled since and can sprint well fresh.


Newcastle Saturday February 16:

BM64 1200m

 NICCONITA

John Bateman/Shaun Guymer

Comment: Coming back in trip and grade after peaking on run in 1500m Highway race at Rosehill. Can certainly atone here.

BM70 1200m

 GREENSPAN

John Bateman/Christian Reith

Comment: Caught wide with a big weight first-up and stuck on ok. May need the run second-up as he prepares for longer trips.


Nowra Sunday February 16:

Maiden 1400m

 IS THAT SO

Joe Pride/Chad Lever

Comment: On debut after three trials this time in. Looks well suited first-up over 1400m.
