RAC­ING Fan­cied filly

Townsville Bulletin - - RACING -

SHE had no luck at yes­ter­day’s bar­rier draw, but Dream Kisses still looks the horse to beat in Satur­day’s Townsville RSL Two- Year- Old Clas­sic ( 1200m) at Clu­den Park.

The filly has been in im­pres­sive form for for­mer Townsville trainer Steven O’Dea in Bris­bane and leads a strong field for North Queens­land’s rich­est two- year- old race.

Dream Kisses has placed in five of her eight ca­reers starts for two wins, in­clud­ing her last start at Doomben on June 24 in the AQUIS FARM Crys­tal Slip­per 2YO Fil­lies Plate ( 1200m).

She had to come from a wide gate on that day which is a good sign af­ter draw­ing bar­rier 14 for Satur­day’s fea­ture race at Clu­den Park, which marks the start of the Townsville Win­ter Car­ni­val.

Lead­ing lo­cal hope Golden Guardian is ideally drawn in bar­rier one as he chases a third straight vic­tory on his home track for Black River trainer Michelle Petrof­ski.

Lead­ing Ather­ton trainer Roy Chillemi won last year’s race and will sad­dle up an­other strong con­tender with Grey Mis­sile com­ing from bar­rier four.
