Single Gaze Primed for Peter Young
Trainer Nick Olive says Single Gaze continues to thrive ahead of Saturday's Gr2 Peter Young Stakes (1800m) at Caulfield. Single Gaze (Not a Single Doubt-Redaluca's Gaze, by Intergaze) was considered an unlucky runner when resuming with a slashing second to Hartnell in the Gr1 CF Orr Stakes (1400m) on 10 February, and Olive says the 5YO has made the necessary improvement to go one better in Saturday's $200,000 weight-for-age feature. "She has come through that run [CF Orr] with flying colours and gone forward off it. She had a nice gallop this morning [Tuesday] on the steeple grass at Caulfield and she worked really well," the Canberra horseman told racing.com. "She sat off another horse, went three-quarter pace over 1000 metres and galloped home the last 600m. It was a good solid gallop and they came home the last 400m in 22.8 so we were really pleased." Olive added: "I think the 1800 metres will suit her second-up. She is a little more dour going in to her second run, we think she will be one of the main chances on Saturday, we think she will give it a good crack."
