WEIR’S POTENT MIX
TRAINER Darren Weir and jockey John Allen made it back-to-back victories yesterday after Volatile Mix took out the Morphettville feature.
Weir and Allen combined last year to win the 2500m three-year-old classic with Howard Be Thy Name who went in as a favoured runner. It was a different story this time, though, as Volatile Mix was sent out a $16 chance to upset his more fancied Victorian rivals Ruthven ($4) and Odeon ($3.20) who filled the minor placings.
And it was Weir’s eighth win at the elite level this season.
