Trainer Michael Costa wary of Viaductress’ wide draw at Canterbury

Michael Costa will be chasing back-yo-back wins with Viaductress on Wednesday.

PUNTERS can expect an improved Viaductress to strut her stuff at Canterbury on Wednesday, although trainer Michael Costa has just one concern for his last-start winner.

The daughter of Sharkbite sat three wide with cover but proved too good in the run home when posting a 1200m win at Warwick Farm on April 13.

She was coming off a close-up fourth at Kembla Grange and Costa says the progression Viaductress showed between those two starts has been replicated before Wednesday’s Schweppes Handicap (1250m).

Secret Agenda gets late Newmarket call up

Blueblood’s three-year-old filly, Secret Agenda, has been a last-minute addition to the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap against a field of more seasoned sprinters.

After trackwork on Tuesday trainer Mick Price favoured running the filly against her own age in the Goodwood Racecourse Trophy at Flemington on Saturday.

But a small field and the absence of Terravista from the Newmarket line-up helped sway his decision just minutes from Wednesday’s acceptance deadline.

“At 27 minutes past nine, Terravista and Tigers Tees weren’t going to be in it so there was going to be a smaller number of runners than I thought,” Price said.

The Mick Price-trained Secret Agenda was a late inclusion in the field for Saturday’s Newmarket Handicap at Flemington.

Earlier in the week Price was keen to run the three-year-old filly against her own sex in the 1100m Goodwood Racecourse Trophy.

But the absence of Terravista, and the possibility of Tiger Tees missing the race, convinced Price to accept.

Price knows it will be a tough assignment, but said $15 chance Secret Agenda had no weight and was in a small field and a placing in a Group 1 would enhance her value as a broodmare after her Group 3 Gucci Stakes win…

Ridden an absolute treat by Michael Walker, Rock Temple controlled the race from the word go before giving a good kick in the straight to go on and win by ¾ of a length with 3rd place another 2 lengths away.

Waterhouse start the new season on a winning note

Gai Waterhouse starts the new season with a bang with progressive filly Kimberley Star.

Coming off two dominant city wins, the Gai Waterhouse-trained daughter of Star Witness opened at $2.30 but eased to a starting price of $2.80 due to support for the Chris Waller-trained Wudang Mountain ($3.80) and the Gerald Ryan-trained Land’s End ($4.40).

Crowned Australia’s most prolific jockey for last season, Blake Shinn managed to find the perfect spot early in the race, slotting in fourth one out trailing a genuine tempo.

Across heels turning for home, Shinn sent Kimberley Star to the front at the 300-metre mark and with…

Having his third run for new trainer Darren Weir, royally bred Fastnet Rock gelding Try Four gave his rivals a galloping lesson at Morphettville on Saturday.

Golden Rose Dream for Sebring Filly

A $100,000 Inglis Premier purchase from the Widden Stud draft for Elite Thoroughbreds, Seeking Asylum has been practising her craft at the country and provincial tracks for Gary Portelli, but was brought to town on Saturday for the open juvenile event over 1550 metres.

Supido is prepared by Mick Kent, who is no stranger to success with a Sebring having prepared his Group I placed stakes-winner Scratchy Bottom.
While she was more of a stayer, Supido is all speed and scored an explosive victory at his first run back from a spell.

Fastnet Blueblood Breaks the Ice

The fluorescent yellow colours of Darren Dance’s Australian Thoroughbred Bloodstock were carried to victory at Warwick Farm on Wednesday by lightly raced Fastnet Rock filly Rockolicious, whose win was not the only reason her owners were cheering.
The Chris Waller trained three year-old was having just her second start and resuming from a long spell after finishing third on debut at Canterbury last November.
Two solid efforts in recent Barrier trials indicated she was ready to run and under a good ride from Blake Shinn, Rockolicious surged late to win the 1300 metre contest by the best part of a length.

“She’s always been a nice filly,” Newitt said.

Magic Millions not on Secret Agenda’s radar

Impressive debut winner Secret Agenda is comparable to Blue Diamond winner Samaready, according to trainer Mick Price.

Price was effusive in his praise for the daughter of Not a Single Doubt following her brilliant all-the-way win at Moonee Valley on Friday night.

“I think if I could guarantee she can run 1200 (metres), I think she’s every bit as good as Samaready, Roedean, Halibery and those nice horses,” Price said.

“I think she’s every bit as good as them. If I could crystal-ball her getting 1200 metres, which I don’t think will be a problem…

Black Revolver finished 3rd in a field of 11 by a mere 1.9L on the 10th of May at Rosehill. Rider Jim Cassidy commented: “he went terrific… very good!” The field was over 1200m and the gelding was looking for a bit further. Tomorrow’s race is 1400m which looks more suitable for the horse.

Black Revolver will be jumping from barrier 8 in a field of 11 in the Girvan Waugh Handicap (1400m) BM 80 HCP with jockey Jim Cassidy in the saddle again. The race will be very competitive with horses like Katie’s Cove and Suit in the mix.

Price thinks of Pressing on to Brisbane

Mick Price was thinking of bigger prizes after his promising colt Pressing gave his rivals a start and a beating in the listed $120,000 Sky High Mt Dandenong Stakes (1200 metres) at Caulfield on Saturday.

That was after the race but halfway through, Price and the punters who had backed Pressing from $3.70 to $2.70 favouritism had some serious concerns.

”I hoped having had a run he would have got on the bridle a bit better,” said Price in reference to Pressing’s debut win where he also settled last. ”You wouldn’t want to be betting in the run in the first…

IT’S extremely rare that Mick Price will tell an owner that he has a Group winner.

But, that is what Price told Vinery about their filly More Radiant, who today won a trial at Cranbourne.

“It is very rare I tell owners they have a Group filly before she races, but I told Vinery they do have a Group filly,” Price said.

Royal mare spearheads Waller’s stellar team

Bookmakers might have Hawkspur and Royal Descent at the top of Caulfield Cup  markets but Saturday’s Turnbull Stakes could be the defining run of their  spring.

Chris Waller’s two classic winners have barely put a step wrong since  beginning their new campaigns, but this day at Flemington was always a crucial  lead-up. ”We have   been happy with both of them, so we  would stop, in terms of the Caulfield Cup,” Waller said. ”This race brings  together a lot of different form lines and will give everyone a good indication  where they are.”
