TH E EARLY CROW
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.
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).
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.
