Summary Of Our Trainers’ Tips For Lord Mayors Community Day

From Chris Waller

Horse: Aleas
Message: (Saturday, Rosehill Race 7, Lord Mayors Cup) Aleas would be our No.1 seed on his recent form. His Wagga Cup win was good and since he has been in Australia, he has been very good.

Horse: Irish Sequel
Message: (Saturday, Rosehill Race 7, Lord Mayors Cup) Finished 5th in the Wagga Wagga Gold Cup last start. Back on a rain-affected surface at Rosehill on Saturday, Irish Sequel is expected to be much more competitive.

From Keith Dryden

Horse: Dream Runner
Message: (Saturday, Rosehill Race 6, Fujitsu General Hcp) Dream Runner put in a top run in the other day at Wagga but they didn’t miss him with the benchmark rating. He has gone up 10 points. If we happened to run a place in the stakes race at Rosehill (the Lord Mayors Cup) on Saturday then he would have been very hard to place. We would have had to go to Melbourne to race. So, we decided to take the weaker option. He has got plenty of weight (60.5kg) but Tyler Schiller’s claim (2kg) helps. Dream Runner was having only his second run in six weeks in the Wagga Wagga Gold Cup so the gelding’s condition would be fractionally improved.

From Gerald Ryan & Sterling Alexiou

Horse: Oceanic Flash
Message: (Saturday, Rosehill Race 6, Fujitsu General Hcp) They (the owners) were nearly going to sell him and I said, ‘don’t sell him until we get him out over 1800 again’ and that was when he won at Newcastle then he went and won four of his next five. He came a long way as the journeys got longer last time and he as always given the impression he would stay. He has come up really well and it wasn’t a surprise he ran well first-up because he has been going well. I know he is jumping straight to 1800 but I don’t think that will worry him a great deal, especially if the track gets a bit better. He has done well since and worked well since.

From Joseph Pride

Horse: Taksu
Message: (Saturday, Brisbane Race 6, BRC Sprint) Taksu will get his chance to shine in the Group 3 BRC Sprint at Doomben on Saturday. I saved him through the (Sydney) carnival and sparingly raced him, he’s had four runs and that was preserving him for a little assault on Brisbane. He’s got a really good record this prep. Even his beaten runs, he was beaten at Newcastle and Rustic Steel ran 3rd in that race and that’s good form. He tuned up for his Brisbane trip with a Warwick Farm barrier trial last week where he finished 3rd.

From Mitchell Beer

Horse: Hardware Lane
Message: (Saturday, Rosehill Race 2, Highway Hcp) Hardware Lane resumed at Hawkesbury and won by a widening three lengths with something to spare. So the form is compelling. Hardware Lane is only up a kilo for last start win and obvious improvement on rain-affected tracks where he excels. A set-back, a month between runs, James (McDonald) said the turn of foot to put them away says better races are in store and he went every bit as good with Mnementh on Tuesday morning – winning work.

Horse: Mnementh
Message: (Saturday, Rosehill Race 10, Bowermans Hcp) Mnementh bled during the Country Championships and had extended time out. Mnementh took lengths off Front Page in fast time last start (in Wagga Town Plate). I know what price he’d be in their races. Front Page, will be hard to beat on weights in that Listed at Flemington (Straight Six) on Saturday. Very happy with his work on Tuesday and Jason Lyon will once again take the rein.
