The Week Ahead MAY 27-JUN 2

May 27, 2019

Proven Thoroughbreds has nominated runners in two upcoming stakes races as the winners continue to flow at a healthy rate.

A double at the Nowra Cup meeting on Sunday elevated Proven's tally of winners for 2019 to 30 and there will be several runners looking to build on that number in the week ahead.

Two of those horses, TAMARACK and BROOK MAGIC (pictured) can attain stakes status on Saturday. The former is set to line up in the $150,000 Listed McKell Cup (2400m) at Rosehill while Brook Magic could head north for the $125,000 Lightning Handicap (1050m) at Doomben.


Upcoming Proven Thoroughbreds runners:

Warwick Farm Wednesday May 29

3yo Maiden 1200m:

 AZOUSTIC

Joe Pride/Jay Ford

Comment: Debutant who's shown potential in two trials albeit with plenty to learn still. 


Gosford Thursday May 30

3yo Maiden 1000m:

INVINCIBLE COMMAND

Joe Pride/Jay Ford

Comment: Another first-starter difficult to get a read on. The 1000m first-up should help her settle.


Sunshine Coast Friday May 31

BM62 1400m:

 DIPLOMATIC MISS

Steve O'Dea/Ronnie Stewart

Comment: Last start winner sure to improve rising in distance second-up. Has raced four times at this track for a win and three placings. 


Pakenham Friday May 31

2yo Maiden 1100m:

 OCEAN TREATY

Archie Alexander/Andrew Mallyon

Comment: Staying bred filly stepping out for her first start. Likely to find this too short but has shown reasonable speed in her trials. 


Rosehill Saturday June 1

Listed McKell Cup 2400m:

TAMARACK

Joe Pride/Jay Ford

Comment: Appears in career best form having won first-up over an unsuitably short distance before a brave effort in the Lord Mayor's Cup last time out, finishing 2-3/4 lengths from the winner. Can win.
