TOP HOPE FOR THE RAMORNIE

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACING - RAY THOMAS

WAR­WICK Farm trainer Greg Hick­man is con­sid­er­ing a Ramornie Hand­i­cap cam­paign for Top Striker.

“Top Striker has all the po­ten­tial in the world but he can be his own worst en­emy,’’ Hick­man said at Rose­hill Gar­dens yes­ter­day.

“But to­day the sting out of the ground suited. It was the right race; good j ockey; good bar­rier; he dug deep. In the back of my mind I feel that he could make an ideal Ramornie horse at Grafton next month so we might head that way.’’

Top Striker ($7.50) gave cham­pion jockey James McDon­ald a win­ning dou­ble — af­ter he had scored on Ra­di­ant Choice — when he wore down early leader Nic­tock ($5.50) to win by a neck with Dif­fi­cult To Get ($4.60 favourite) a half­head away third.
