Three options for talented Mr Marbellouz


By: Mark Oberhardt on Mar 20, 2019

Promising sprinter Mr Marbellouz will accept for races at Eagle Farm and the Gold Coast on Saturday but is no certainty to start in either.

Mr Marbellouz, a brilliant last-start Doomben winner, was a short-priced favourite for the Listed Goldmarket at the Gold Coast before it was washed out last Saturday.

The Goldmarket was rescheduled for this Saturday at the Gold Coast with a new field and barriers.

Acceptances and the barrier draw for the Goldmarket are on Thursday.

Kemp also entered Mr Marbellouz for a 1000m race at Eagle Farm where he drew barrier five.

"We will have a good luck at both fields and decide where he is best placed," Kemp said.

"Really, he doesn't have to start in either. His main goal in the Weetwood Handicap (at Toowoomba) and it is only two weeks from Saturday.

"It would have been good to run him last week but the track was really wet. He likes wet tracks but that was very wet and we might have flattened him."

Kemp isn't sure there are suitable races for Mr Marbellouz during the winter carnival.

"I would love to sneak him down to Melbourne one day and try him at Moonee Valley. He works on our tight training track here and flies around it so I reckon he would handle The Valley."
