Into The Black Book – Ascot Midweek


The OzRace Team comment on the ones to follow from the Wednesday meeting at ASCOT

Wednesday 17th May 2017


“Don’t give up on this gifted mare after her unplaced first-up run, when she was run off her feet and taken out of her comfort zone chasing a faster-than-average tempo. 1000 metres is not her go, but the blow out will do her good stepping up in distance next start. We expect her to be hard to beat second and third up this prep.” – Thoroheads


“finished fast to run third after being blocked for most of the home straight. It was an impressive race debut by the son of boom sire Gingerbread Man. Only one official barrier trial was contested by the two-year-old before his first race and he is sure to have benefited from the experience.” – Ernie Manning


“Was no match for the exciting winner Mizlecki but did do a bit of extra work in running and showed some courage to box on after not having things his own way. Pretty encouraging debut and this run will provide him with a strong platform to win second and/or third up.” – Thoroheads


“One of the runs of the day when never on the track and plotting a particularly wide path on the turn, before balancing up and hitting the line hardest to run the leader/winner Slick Mover to a short neck. Promising filly and she appears to be looking for a mile now. Must be followed.” – Thoroheads

“Massive run from well back on a day where few made ground – another promising type from the Kersley camp and look for this one over further.” – Chris Blackwell

“is yet another talented three-year-old emerging from in-form trainer Fred Kersley’s stable. The filly ran on strongly to finish second over 1400m after covering considerable extra ground. She has now raced three times and appears to be ready for longer journeys.” – Ernie Manning


“was absolutely crunched on the tote in the lead up to what was an impressive run having drawn wide and forced to do all the hard work. The lightly raced Fath 6yo has put together two good runs on end, and worth following from a favourable gate” – Chris Blackwell


“produced a big effort to run third after being trapped wide for most of the race. The lightly-raced gelding, who is still performing greenly, was stepping up from 1600m to 2200m. He is from a mare by champion UK sire Galileo and appears to have a bright future in staying ranks.” – Ernie Manning


“Promising three-year-old who never settled when tucked away behind the leaders on a very slow tempo, however, despite wasting bulk energy early and mid-race, he was still able to pick himself up and work to the line to place second. Race fit and in-form, and we expect him to be very hard to beat is placed to advantage next start.” – Thoroheads


“WOW what a performance after being enormous the start prior the step up to 2200m proving the right move – exciting 4yo who will be rising through the classes with ease on that run – a must follow” – Chris Blackwell
