Rail: True Entire Circuit


PIERRO ROSE (Race 5, 2:45pm, 1500 metres, No. 8, jockey Steve Baster, 56kg)

Pierro Rose (Pierro/Rose Of Sharon) two-year old bay filly. Pierro Rose has travelled down to Melbourne an absolute treat, as evidenced by her strong gallop over 600 metres on Monday morning. We look forward to seeing this filly improve with the step up to 1500 metres and we expect to see her right there in the finish come race day. Each way chance.


SATURDAY 23 MARCH 2019 – Kembla Grange



REGAL STAGE (Race 3, 2:49pm, 1200 metres, No. 2, jockey Winona Costin, 59kg)

Regal Stage (Redoute’s Choice/Estelle Collection) four-year old bay horse. The horse has taken no ill effect from his last run, he has very good race fitness under his belt and we know he is the class act of this field. Regal Stage is carrying top weight as he is the class act in this field but he has drawn well in barrier 4 so we look forward to seeing him salute the judge come race day. Winning chance.

BRITZEL (Race 4, 3:29pm, 1200 metres, No. 5, jockey Lee Magorrian, 57kg)

Britzel (Snitzel/Brandish) three-year old bay or brown gelding. Britzel is raring to get back to the races on Saturday after having a bit of time off the scene. The gelding has done a very good job this preparation with two solid trials under his belt and the 1200 metres will suit him beautifully first up.  He will improve with the added fitness but we expect to see him right there in the finish come race day. Each way chance.

AMAMI (Race 5, 4:14pm, 1400 metres, No. 6, jockey Winona Costin, 56.5kg)

Amami (Choisir/Amo Ami Ama) three-year old bay filly. Amami has made nice improvement following her first up run and we can't fault her heading into Saturday. The filly has drawn ideally on the inside with a jockey that knows her very well, she is right down in the weights and she has the fitness to see out the 1400 metres. This race has shaped up very nicely for Amami and we expect to see sharp improvement on Saturday. Each way chance.


SATURDAY 23 MARCH 2019 – Canberra

Rail: +6m 1000m-350m, +3m Remainder


VERMONT (Race 3, 1:13pm, 1300 metres, No. 3, apprentice Quayde Krogh, 58kg)

Vermont (Exceed And Excel/Snowdrift) three-year old chestnut gelding. Vermont has flourished with the added time between runs. The race day fitness and experience has brought him on very nicely, which shows in his trackwork and we expect to see him improve as he steps up in distance here. There is a bit of speed on in this race, but our gelding has good early speed and he should be able to dictate the terms of the race. Each way chance.

TRANSACT (Race 7, 3:53pm, 1600 metres, No. 2, apprentice Quayde Krogh, 62kg)

Transact (Dundeel/Rap Tale) three-year old bay gelding. Transact has made good improvement from his first up run with the added fitness under his belt. He has trained on very nicely following the run and the step back in class will certainly suit him, although he will have to carry a bit more weight. We have added blinkers to switch him on and we do expect to see him prove competitive in this spot. Each way chance.


SUNDAY 24 MARCH 2019 – Muswellbrook

Rail: True


THE LIFELINE (Race 4, 2:30pm, 1000 metres, No. 5, jockey Winona Costin, 56.5kg)

The Lifeline (Pierro/Princess Quality) two-year old bay colt. The Lifeline has trained on very nicely following his two good trials this preparation. The colt will appreciate the 1000 metres on debut, although we know he will only improve with the added distance, fitness and race experience moving forward. We couldn't be happier with how he is heading into this affair, he is primed to put in a competitive performance and we look forward to seeing him start on Sunday. Each way chance.

ADAGIRL (Race 7, 4:25pm, 1450 metres, No. 12, jockey Winona Costin, 54kg)

Adagirl (Lonhro/Adaline) three-year old brown or black filly. Adagirl did a wonderful job when breaking her maiden last start. She has come through the run exceptionally well and has been bouncing around out on the track this week, ticking every box for a horse on the quick backup. The filly will only improve with the added confidence of a win under her belt and we expect to see her right there in the finish once again come race day. Each way chance.


SUNDAY 24 MARCH 2019 – Ballarat

Rail: OPut 5m 600m-WP, True Remainder


OPULENT ANGEL (Race 2, 1:25pm, 1400 metres, No. 12, apprentice Zac Spain, 57kg)

Opulent Angel (More Than Ready/Opulence Start) three-year old chestnut filly. Our filly has trained on beautifully following her debut having taken good benefit from the raceday fitness and experience. She is the most honest filly at our Flemington stable and the step up to the 1400 metres will certainly suit, although she must overcome a wide barrier draw. Each way chance.


MONDAY 25 MARCH 2019 – Goulburn

Rail: True

GAYSON (Race 1, 1:40pm, 2100 metres, No. 6, jockey James Innes Junior, 57.5kg)

Gayson (Savabeel/In The Mood) three-year old brown gelding. Gayson is primed to graduate from maiden class following a very strong placing in city company over a distance far short of his best. The gelding is just beginning to hit his straps this preparation and the step up in distance and drop back in class will suit him beautifully. He has drawn well in barrier 4 in a race that doesn't have too much speed on, so we expect to see him prove tough to beat on race day. Each way chance.
