Gol­lan gears up for cen­tury

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

PRE­MIER trainer Tony Gol­lan be­gins a late sea­son on­slaught with 13 run­ners, in­clud­ing a strong hand in the two main races at Doomben to­day.

Gol­lan has been on a Euro­pean hol­i­day which took in the Royal As­cot carnival, but will be home at the week­end for what he hopes is the be­gin­ning of a strong fin­ish to the sea­son.

He is poised to pass 100 over­all win­ners with his tally cur­rently stand­ing at 98.

Gol­lan is lead­ing the metropoli­tan pre­mier­ship with 70 win­ners but is locked in a bat­tle with Toowoomba’s Ben Cur­rie for the state ti­tle.

He has been in con­stant con­tact with staff at his Ea­gle Farm sta­ble and is look­ing for­ward to Lord Co­conuts, Sheiswhat­sheis and Pin­dan Pearl in the Brett Whal­ley and Co Open Hand­i­cap ( 1640m).

Gol­lan laid care­ful plans for Lord Co­conuts af­ter the geld­ing scored a fight­ing win at Ip­swich in a metropoli­tan bench­mark race three weeks ago.
