Team heads to Donald today

May 11, 2018

Two runners head to Donald today where they'll be racing on a soft 6 track.

 

Equiamico races in the first race which is a maiden over 1000 metres.

He was good first up over the same journey a few weeks ago at Werribee. A 60/1 chance that day he was trapped out deep and with no cover he kept finding in the straight only to be run down late by the stakes placed galloper Zarpoya.

 

He's drawn in 6 today and from here he'll roll forward from the gate. There's a couple in the race who have drawn inside us that will go forward but the speed doesn't look ridiculous. Hoping we can find the fence without chewing up too many carrots.

 

The Darren Weir trained favourite Pip's Pick has got back in all its' starts and will be the horse we'll need to hold out at the finish.

 

Provided Equiamico can handle the soft track he looks a good chance to break his maiden today.  

 

Later in the day Milford Thoroughbreds bred filly Bombay Bullet races in race 5 of the program over 1350 metres. 

 

After blowing the start and not competing in her debut run, Bombay Bullet showed excellent improvement in her next start at Kilmore. After settling back in the field she worked to the line really well to be beaten just 3.5 lengths.

 

The additional 150 metres of today's race will prove to be a real bonus for the daughter of Casino Prince who's breeding suggests she'll appreciate a trip.

 

With the scratchings Bombay Bullet comes into gate 7. She should be able to settle a little bit closer today and she's been rated a 12/1 chance.

 

MIsty Sea and Little Heath look the one's to beat but both have drawn tricky gates.

 

Stable apprentice Leticia Griffin rides both our runners today and takes 4 kg's off their backs.

 

Good luck to all owners! 

 

 

 Equiamico runs second at Great Western at his last preparation.
