DAR­REN Weir’s star Black Heart Bart will by­pass Sandown Hill­side on Satur­day as he will in­stead be head­ing to Perth to tackle Satur­day week’s $1 mil­lion Rail­way Stakes (1600m) at As­cot.

Weir had Black Heart Bart en­tered for two races at Sandown Hill­side but when he found out he had been given 59kg in Perth that swayed him to head in­ter­state with him.

“I had the race in mind for some­time and when he got 59kg that con­firmed he’s be go­ing as that’s what I hoped to get,” Weir said.

“He’ll go over with Ul­mann who’ll also run in the Rail­way Stakes.”

It will be the for­mer Perth gal­loper’s first start in his home state since he joined Weir’s sta­bles.

Black Heart Bart hasn’t started since he fin­ished fifth in the Un­der­wood Stakes at Caulfield on Oc­to­ber 1.

Weir will back-up Mel­bourne Cup fourth placeget­ter Big Duke in the Zip­ping Clas­sic (2400m) on Satur­day at Sandown Hill­side in the hope of break­ing through to win the race for the first time.

“He ran re­ally well. He couldn’t have gone any bet­ter and he’s come through the race re­ally well,” Weir said.

He will also run Gal­lic Chief­tain in the Sandown Cup (3200m).

Gal­lic Chief­tain fin­ished fifth in the Queen El­iz­a­beth Stakes but Weir said that he would have fin­ished with a bet­ter ride.

Weir will have a strong lineup at Sandown Hill­side with Raw Im­pulse in the Eclipse Stakes, Burn­ing Front in the Kevin Hef­fer­nan Stakes and Lucky Hus­sler in the Sandown Stakes. Two of his un­lucky Flem­ing­ton run­ners Snitzepeg and Ta­masa will run in the Sandown Guineas (1600m). 1 2 3
