Comp race 9

Cummings Reverts to Latin to State the Obvious

Weekend, 28th August 2020

Godolphin’s head-trainer James Cummings has unmasked himself as a student of Latin in assessing the prospects of Cascadian for Saturday’s Gr1 Memsie Stakes (1400m), where the stable will also be represented by in-form mare Savatiano. Stating the obvious, Cumming’s noted, “The Memsie is traditionally a good horse’s race. Res ipsa loquitur.” The Latin means that the facts are so obvious as not to require any further explanation. As to his duo’s chances, Cummings said of Cascadian, “He’s ready to attack. He’s enjoyed having the freshness knocked out of him by his first-up run, and he’s confirmed that by the sensible and easy way he’s gone about his training since. I’d hoped to see the horse storming home the way he did in the PB Lawrence from the wide barrier. If he runs up to that here it opens up some attractive options in either the Sir Rupert Clarke or the Makybe Diva.” The trainer is equally bullish about Savatiano’s prospects folowing her P.B. Lawrence win. “We’ve often thought of her as a bottled-up talent and now she has the chance to live up to that opinion. Not every horse has the chance to prove they are a Group 1 performer.” Cummings assessed, “She’s been very effective over 1400m at Caulfield, she’s been placed twice in good Group 1 company and this could be her best opportunity to win at that level.”

From ANZ Bloodstock News

Turnbull aim for Harlem

Dual Group 1 winner Harlem (Champs Elysees) makes his return in the Memsie with co-trainer Ben Hayes expecting the veteran to be at his peak third-up when he is due to contest the Turnbull Stakes (Gr 1, 2000m). The nine-year-old is set to head to the Makybe Diva Stakes (Gr 1, 1600m) after tomorrow’s race, and Hayes, who trains in partnership with Tom Dabernig told Racing.com: “He is always going to need the run, I don’t think he’s ever won first-up but we’ve been happy with his build-up. He’s done very well in the paddock, he came in with a bit of a belly this prep and he will definitely need the run and improve. He normally peaks third-up into his prep. We are thrilled with the way he is going, so I would be backing him third-up. Obviously we will go on from the Turnbull, but Turnbull third-up will be our main goal.”

Begg takes easier option with Nonconformist

Grahame Begg toyed with the idea of promising stayer Nonconformist (Rebel Raider) resuming in the Memsie Stakes but he is happy with his decision to take a softer option. Instead of starting off at the highest level, the four-year-old will run in a 1400-metre handicap on the same program as he starts his Caulfield Cup (Gr 1, 2400m) bid. "It's a better way to kick off. He's one-and-a-half kilos above the minimum weight so that's going to be easier than running in the Memsie Stakes," Begg said. "If he was to come back to racing in a Group 1 Memsie Stakes he'd have to be trained right up to the mark, which as he's got bigger goals he's not. With Begood Toya Mother and Streets Of Avalon in that race they are going to run along and in the end it might take too much out of the horse.

comp race 6

Lyre Likely to Need First-Up Run

Weekend, 28th August 2020

Former Gr1 Blue Diamond heroine Lyre is likely to benefit from Saturday's first-up run in Caulfield's Gr3 Heath Stakes (1100m). That's the opinion of co-trainer Sam Freedman who trains in partnership with his father Anthony. "She hasn't been pushed around in her two trials leading up to this. She'll run well, but she will improve," revealed Freedman who is sticking with blinkers for the now 4YO mare who is owned by Godolphin. "She had a frustrating 3YO season but her form wasn't bad at all. Looking through it, she hardly ran a bad race and she ran belters in the Sangster and the Goodwood in Adelaide at the end of her preparation which is very good form for a 3YO filly." Only out of the first four twice from 14 starts which included Group 1 fourths in the Thousand Guineas and Flight Stakes, Lyre comes into Saturday's race off two Group 1-placings.

Richards saddles two in The Heath

Gordon Richards will saddle-up Bold Star (Needs Further) and Garner (Barbados) in the The Heath with the race likely to decide which path the pair take at the Carnival. “I was going to separate them this weekend, but it was going to be a tough call because the race at the Valley next week is weight-for-age,” Richards told theracessa.com. “After they race Saturday, we’ll get a good idea of who goes in what direction. They’ll both come home and one may run in the Wylie, but I’ll be guided by how they go this weekend. You’d like them to be running in the good races like the Moir Stakes but we’ll let them dictate that".

Comp races 3 & 4 - Jockey to follow

Cuneen out to build momentum

Group 1-winning jockey Racha Cuneen hopes a strong book of rides at Riccarton tomorrow will add further momentum to his recently-resumed New Zealand career. Cuneen put his New Zealand career on hold when he relocated to Victoria at the beginning of 2018, but the 28-year-old returned to his homeland and resurrected his Kiwi career in late June. He has ridden three winners from his first 31 rides back on home soil. “It’s been good so far, I’ve just been chipping away,” Cuneen said. “I had a little bit of trouble with my weight to start with, coming out of lockdown, but now I’m starting to get some good support and build up a little bit of momentum. I was originally planning to be here until New Zealand Cup week and then make a decision about going back to Melbourne after that, but with everything that’s going on in Aussie at the moment with Covid-19, I think I’m going to be here for a good 12 months at least. We’ll have to wait and see what happens. But I’m really happy to be home at the moment and hoping to start riding a few more winners

Mate, as a  Master of Disguise (Hos 1st Class) please allow the Mustelid to give you some advice.

1. The whole point of being disguised is that your true identity is not revealed.

2. The pic above is a dead giveaway. For starters, if you are BLIND, how does it help to be wearing glasses? Stop drawing attention to your infirmity, old son!
