The Sportsman Weekend - - Randwick Preview -

THE BANKER

Lan­g­ley (Race 3 No. 6) - is the most su­perbly colt you would see. He is by Red­oute’s Choice while his grand-dam, Ne­braska Tor­nado, is a Storm Cat daugh­ter who won two Group 1 races in France - one of those was the French Oaks. I thought Lan­g­ley would win the Golden Rose (dated back to be­fore he had raced and sev­eral months ago) but time ran out, he just wasn’t ‘there’. Still a fair bit ‘new’ and a can do things wrong but that last star t win was a con­fi­dence booster.

THE ROUGHIE

Grunderzeit (Race 9 No. 2) has won five races, all of them at Can­ter­bur y. Need­less to say, I wish we were there on Satur­day but they don’t run Ep­soms at Can­ter­bur y. The James Cum­mings trained geld­ing has been ter­ri­bly sharp in his tri­als and raced well fresh in the past. We know that he is def­i­nitely a top of the ground horse, all of his wins are on good rated tracks. Makes gen­uine ap­peal at the $13 (full field/ Thurs­day morn­ing quote).

THE TRIAL

Per for­mer (Race 1 No. 5) is a Chris Waller 2YO aim­ing to win the Breed­ers’ Plate. This colt was sold for $460,000 as a year­ling at the Magic Mil­lions Sale and is an Ex­ceed And Ex­cel half brother to G1 Galax y win­ner Bel Sprinter. He tri­alled as well as any thing and bet­ter than most when win­ning a heat at the Of­fi­cial 2YO Tri­als at Can­ter­bur y 12-days ago. if there is one horse look­ing to swap Can­ter­bur y 900m for Rand­wick 1000m, it’s Per for­mer.
