We have three runners heading to Gatton tomorrow for what looks like a strong Gatton Cup day program.
Trainer Chris Munce gives his thoughts on our three runners:
Stayer EXPERTEA lines up in the Royal Hotel Gatton Cup (2000m), which also doubles as a heat of the Winter Provincial Stayers Series in the build-up to the final to be held on Ipswich Cup Day.
TRAINER COMMENTS: “She’s done very well since her first up run and getting up to the 2000m suits her. As long as she can handle the tight Gatton track, it’s a nice race which leads her into the Provincial Series Cup final on Ipswich Cup day.”
Race 7 – 4:19PM THE ROYAL HOTEL WINTER PROV STAYERS (HEAT) GATTON CUP BenchMark 75 Hcp (2000 METRES)
9. Expertea (12), Nathan Day, 55kg
Sprinter HELLAROO resumes from a spell in the the Cooks Transport Lockyer Lighting Benchmark 70 Handicap (1100m).
TRAINER COMMENTS: “I’m very happy with this filly. She hasn’t trialled but she’s done a lot of work and has had enough gallops, so I expect her to run quite a nice race for us around that track.”
Race 3 – 1:39PM COOKS TRANSPORT LOCKYER LIGHTNING BenchMark 70 Handicap (1100 METRES)
4. Hellaroo (2), Nathan Day, 56kg
Maiden ZEGOTA lines up in her first start for Munce Racing since relocating from the Brad Widdup stable at Hawkesbury.
TRAINER COMMENTS: “She’s done very well. She’s had one good hard trial and a couple of gallops. The 1100m may be a bit of a query for her but she’s had enough work, she’s fit and healthy and I’m sure she’ll acquit herself well.”
Race 2 – 1:04PM WILSON BROTHERS FINANCE/BLUE DOG SPORTS Maiden Handicap (1100 METRES)
3. Zegota (10), Nathan Day, 58kg
