JWR WEEKEND PREVIEW: BALLARAT CUP DAY

Nov 21, 2015

The stable is having a great run at the moment with 13 winners since the start of September and it is the JWR mares and fillies which are leading the charge. From our last 13 winners, the girls have won 10 of them headed by Unlawful, Orvassa, Risque Business, Hipster Girl, Speedy Franzalis and our latest winner Lady Provocateur.

The winning run for the girls may continue over the weekend with Orvassa at Ballarat and exciting first starter Backstreet Lover stepping out at Cranbourne tomorrow night.

BALLARAT CUP DAY

ORVASSA was horribly unlucky last Saturday at Sandown running 5th in the Twilight Glow Stakes and backs up tomorrow in the $100k Vobis Gold Race. Froggy Newitt has been replaced by Patrick Moloney and we are hoping that an change of jockey brings a change of luck!

SANG CHOI BAO (pictured) has been desperately unlucky at his past three starts and will appreciate the big open spaces at Ballarat tomorrow. He will get back and look for him to be rocketing home late.

CRANBOURNE SATURDAY NIGHHT

The stable has two excellent chances on Saturday night at Cranbourne. Street Cry filly BACKSTREET LOVER (pictured) has been ultra impressive in her trials and looks a talented filly in the making. She is capable of winning on debut if she gets some luck in running.

RiSQUE BUSINESS (pictured) is coming off a good win at Mornington and steps up to a BM70 1300m race on Saturday night. She has been scratched from Ballarat due to a bad barrier and is elected to be extremely competitive at Cranbourne in a tough race.

LADY PROVOCATEUR DOES IT EASILY

This years crop of 3yo fillies is the strongest ever assembled at Denistoun Park. Zasorceress and Orvassa are stakes fillies in the making whilst Backstreet Lover puts her reputation on the line tomorrow. Parallel Lines has already won two races whilst Artie Schiller filly Central Park Belle looks ready to in after a slashing debut last week.

Add to that group LADY PROVOCATEUR (pictured) who showed that she has a bright future with a commanding win at Benalla yesterday. The former kiwi filly has always showed good ability on the track and it was fantastic to see her perform so well after a 4 hour road trip in 37 degree heat.

The daughter of Pins was purchased privately from New Zealand for $40k which looks to be money well spent. She is raced by Tom Dugdale and a new group of owners to the stable who are still pinching themselves after yesterday's win.
