Versatility Key to Supply And Demand

Friday, 24th November 2017

The Tulloch Lodge stable of Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott believe they have the right horse in Supply And Demand to win tomorrow's $1 million Gr1 Railway Stakes (1600m) at Ascot, reports the West Australian. The dual stakes winner is coming off a fast-finishing second behind Hellova Street in the Gr3 TCL TV Stakes (1400m) at Flemington and will carry just 54.5kg in the $1 million feature. However, the son of Sebring has drawn a horror gate in barrier 19 and will have to call upon his versatility if he is to have any chance of success. Bott said the 5YO had travelled to Perth well and was close to peak fitness for his third run back from a spell. "It's a little bit of a tricky draw, but outside of that, he's travelled over well and he's a very fit horse," Bott said. "The best thing in our favour to overcome the draw is the fact that the horse is so versatile. He has tactical speed to be on the pace or lead, but if we decide that's not the best option, he has a lovely turn of foot when coming from off the pace." Bott added: "In recent years we haven't had the right prospects to go over to Perth, but he showed a perfect profile for that carnival. He just lacked a bit of dash and got caught flat-footed last start. A strong mile with a good tempo will suit him." Supply And Demand is out of the good producer Demanding (Octagonal) who has also produced Gr2 winner Washington Heights, dual stakes winner Phenomenons, as well as stakes winner and multiple Group placegetter Spacecraft.

TAS Sprinter on Track for Regal Roller

Thursday, 10th August 2017

Stakes-placed Tasmanian sprinter Lord Da Vinci (Lonhro-Sadlers Brigg, by Montjeu) posted an outstanding trial win at Hobart on Tuesday ahead of his anticipated return to racing in the Listed Regal Roller STakes (1200m) at Caulfield on Saturday week, reports tasracing.com.au. Ridden by race jockey David Pires, Lord Da Vinci was untroubled winning his 800m heat by 7 lengths in a time of 47.7 seconds. His final 600m was a slick 32.79 seconds, believed to be the quickest final 600m sectional ever seen at the Hobart trials. "He was pretty impressive his last 600. He doesn't have a brilliant turn of foot, he just lengthens his stride and when we straightened up I just gave him a little squeeze and then held him together and I couldn't be more impressed with him," an excited Pires said. "I reckon he'll give them a run for their money that's for sure. I really think this has topped him off nicely and he's exactly where we want him to be at the right time so hopefully he will run a brilliant race over there." A winner of 10 of his 33 starts, Lord Da Vinci's best stakes performance to date was a close second to Hellova Street in the Listed Thomas Lyons Stakes (1400m) at Hobart in February.
