Over to share in Val­ley spoils

The Sportsman Weekend - - News -

THE Me­nari form will be put to the test in to­mor­row’s Listed MVRC McKen­zie Stakes (1200m) at the Val­ley when Team Hawkes colt Over­share heads back ‘home’ to Vic­to­ria af­ter a de­cent show­ing in the Rose­bud at Rose­hill a fort­night ago.

The Spendthrift Aus­tralia owned colt was close-up in the Blue Di­a­mond Pre­lude and Pre­view at his first two starts.

He won a Can­ter­bury mid­weeker in the win­ter but wasn’t seen again un­til his on­pace 3.2-lens fourth to the barn­storm­ing Me­nari in the $150,000 Rose­bud on Au­gust 12.

“He just had to do a lit­tle bit too much from the bar­rier (7 of 8) and just worked within him­self,” co-trainer Michael Hawkes ex­plained.

“Had he drawn a bar­rier, he would have fin­ished a lot closer, I am not say­ing he would have won but he have been right in the fin­ish.

“The three horses who fin­ished in front of him look like nice horses so hope­fully every­thing goes to plan and it’s on­wards and up­wards.”

Over­share has drawn bar­rier 3 to­mor­row.
