And in the be­gin­ning ...

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Racing - RAY THOMAS

PE­TER and Paul Snow­den, ac­knowl­edged as mas­ter train­ers of ju­ve­niles, could be about to un­earth an­other promis­ing young­ster in Cre­ator in the Road­work So­lu­tions Hand­i­cap (1200m) at Rose­hill Gar­dens to­day.

Team Snow­den has al­ready been rep­re­sented by some very tal­ented two-year-olds this sea­son in­clud­ing un­beaten trio Catch Me (Gim­crack Stakes) , Ana­heed (Vic­tory Vein Plate) and Stras­bourg (Max Lees Clas­sic).

Catch Me and Ana­heed are on the se­cond line of early bet­ting at $15 be­hind Tas­sort ($6) for the Golden Slip­per next year.

Cre­ator is at­tempt­ing to join that sta­ble trio and make a win­ning de­but to­day.

He is su­perbly bred by su­per sire Red­oute’s Choice and is closely re­lated to Hong Kong’s cham­pion sprinter Silent Wit­ness. With such a pedi­gree, it wasn’t sur­pris­ing he fetched $1.5 mil­lion at the Inglis Easter Year­ling Sales this year.

Cre­ator has shaped promis­ingly in two bar­rier tri­als lead­ing into to­day’s race and there has al­ready been some solid sup­port for the colt on TAB Fixed Odds, firm­ing from $6 to $3.50.

The Snow­den sta­ble has a good rep­re­sen­ta­tion to­day in­clud­ing im­pres­sive last-start win­ner Reelem In Ruby in the 2019 Mem­ber­ship Hand­i­cap (1400m).

The fa­ther-son train­ing duo also has Smart­edge and On­slaught in the ATC Tip­ping Com­pe­ti­tion Hand­i­cap (1400m), while Tem­prado lines up in the Sum­mer Rac­ing Hand­i­cap (2000m) and Is­land Mis­sile con­tests the Christ­mas At The Gar­dens Hand­i­cap (1500m).
