Fo­ran wary of only one thing — Bon­nie Sare’s weight

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACEDAY PREVIEW -

INVERELL trainer Al­lan Fo­ran says only one thing can beat Bon­nie Sare to­day — and it’s not one of her ri­vals.

The six-year-old mare races in a bench­mark 58 hand­i­cap over 1900m and she’s fly­ing at the mo­ment and is no doubt good enough to win the race on class alone.

“She’s only tiny and has 59kg so that’s the only thing that can stop her,’’ Fo­ran said. “Other than that, she should nearly win. She was un­lucky first-up then she did noth­ing but run first and sec­ond so, if she runs the trip, she should beat them.”

Af­ter runs over 1400m and 1600m, Bon­nie Sare takes on to­day’s 1900m trip for the first time, but Fo­ran isn’t wor­ried.

“She’s go­ing well and she’s run strongly over 1600m so she should run the next 300m be­cause she’s nice and fit,” Fo­ran said.

“She set­tles re­ally well and is easy to ride. You can put her wher­ever you want and from that gate (10), she’ll go out the back and fin­ish off well.”

Ruby Two Shoes is Fo­ran’s other lead­ing hope in a bench­mark 58 hand­i­cap (1400m). She ran a su­per race first-up over 1100m at Ar­mi­dale when storm­ing home.

“She’s go­ing re­ally well but it’s the first time she’s been over 1400m,” Fo­ran said.

“If she runs as well as she did first-up, she should go close. She was a bit too far back last start but flew home.”

Bin­na­cle is Fo­ran’s other run­ner, in the third race, but he needs to lift to win.

“He’ll have to im­prove be­cause he hasn’t been do­ing much,” Fo­ran said. “He’s got the abil­ity but he just doesn’t seem to want to do it. I’m hop­ing that might change be­cause he’s been work­ing a bit bet­ter this week. I’ve put the blink­ers back on and, if he tries his best, he’ll be good enough.”
