BIG TEST FOR THUNDER TEDDINGTON
Sep 23, 2016
It is not too often that you see a JWR runner step out over 2400m second up but that's the assignment we have set European import THUNDER TEDDINGTON.
The former Hungary galloper was excellent first up over 1600m (running the fastest final 200m) and jumps straight to the mile and a half tomorrow in the Listed Harry White Classic.
"All of his best form in Europe is over 2400m and longer so there was no point wasting too many runs over the shorter trips".
"He is one of the cleanest winded horses I've ever trained. He wouldn't have blown out a candle after his first up run so the extra distance won't worry him".
"Tomorrow's race is a real fork in the road for him. If he measures up, we can target races like the Geelong Cup or the Bendigo Cup. If he falls short, we can always drop back a grade."
"I am not expecting him to win tomorrow but it would be nice to see him on the heels of the placegetters and we can have him ready to win third up".
VICIOUS TO BITE BACK
The stable expected a big run from VICIOUS first up at Moe and he didn't give a yelp. He gets a second chance at Moonee Valley tonight as we welcome back Friday night racing.
"He was really disappointing at Moe. I think he will be much better suited on the firm going tonight at the Valley. The blinkers go on and I am expecting a much improved run".
