Promising duo RECKLESS CHOICE and KYLEASE headline an exciting contingent of Proven Thoroughbreds runners in the week aheard.

RECKLESS CHOICE is fast becoming one of the most improved horses in Queensland and on Saturday at Eagle Farm, the Steve O’Dea-trained gelding will be out to make it six wins in his last nine starts.

The Joe Pride-trained KYLEASE (pictured) is another galloper for us on an upward spiral, as she heads to Randwick on Wednesday in search of a second victory in three career starts.

Of our seven other runners in the week ahead, five finished in the quinella at their most recent start.

Upcoming Proven Thoroughbreds runners:

Kembla Grange Tuesday March 5:

Maiden 1400m


Joe Pride/Sam Clipperton

Comment: Solid on debut when second at Nowra over 1400m. All the better for that experience and should appreciate the open spaces of Kembla.

Randwick-Kensington Wednesday March 6:

BM70 1250m


Joe Pride/Corey Brown

Comment: Highly-rated three-year-old who won in slick time at Gosford last month. Has since finished alongsided the Group performed Ball Of Muscle in a trial. Looks hard to beat again.

Doomben Wednesday March 6:

BM65 1640m


Steve O’Dea/Boris Thornton

Comment: Doesn’t have the most imposing winning record but certainly has the ability to measure up in this company. Rises to 1600m for the first time in 12 months.

Maiden 1640m


Steve O’Dea/Ron Stewart

Comment: Still a maiden after four runs but has been runner-up in two of those outings and looks suited going up in trip.

Eagle Farm Saturday March 9:

BM80 1200m


Steve O’Dea/Mark Du Plessis

Comment: Always thereabouts by virtue of his early gate speed but needs another win on the board. Goes from 1000m to 1200m in search of a tempo more conducive to his racing style. 

Class 6 1600m


Steve O’Dea/Boris Thornton

Comment: Simply flying this horse. Has won his five of his last eight with a minimum of fuss and looks beautifully placed to win again.

Class 3 1400m


Steve O’Dea/Boris Thornton

Comment: She was desperately unlucky not to win when wide throughout over this course and distance last time out. Third-up she should be cherry ripe and with an ounce more luck will be going close to winning.

3YO Handicap 1800m


Steve O’Dea/Anthony Allen

Comment: Big winner at Grafton over 1710m last month and although this is a substantial rise in grade, she has the potential to flourish as the distances get longer. Should be decent value in betting and looks a definite hope on the way she’s progressing.
