It’s fair to say that everyone at the stable is very excited about this weekend. With 6 runners spread across 3 days, there are some fantastic chances them and I think we should land a winner or hopefully two! Here is a run down on our runners.
TEDDY BACKED TO WIN PAKENHAM CUP
TEDDY has been tipped by many shrewd judges to win tomorrow’s Pakenham Cup. His run at Flemington wasn’t missed and his trial was impressive last week. Let’s hope the big dark Hungarian can deliver the goods.
We had a great association with Froggy Newitt going back a couple of years but I can't remember the last winner he rode for us. Hopefully that's about to change. With Teddy drawn inside, Froggy will need to plot a course to the outside so the big European can let down with an almighty finish.

THE STABLE STALWART - DANGER CLOSE
DANGER returns at Pakenham for yet another campaign. Now a 7year old and coming up for start number 37, the son of Written Tycoon is a much loved horse at Denistoun Park having spent his whole career in the yellow and blue colours.
He has never won first up (after 6 attempts) but he might be worth a little place bet at the big odds!

VIOLENT SNOW was scratched from the Valley and saved for tomorrow’s race. After drawing barrier 15, I think we all wished we had run last weekend!
She is flying on the track and I think she would have been a huge chance had she drawn a gate. We will go back from the wide draw and if the swoopers are winning, she’s right in the hunt at nice odds!
Equiano filly ORVASSA has been freshened and lines up in a very winnable race at Geelong on Sunday. Luke Nolen jumps aboard with Damian Lane in Hong Kong.
SANG CHOI BAO is ready to step up this preparation. His trial at Cranbourne was first rate and I think we’ve got his head right so look out for him over the summer.
