TRIS­TAN DUNN GOOD — A GAIN

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACING - SHAYNE O’CASS TAB HIGH­WAY

BREAK out the tem­plate; Dunn wins TAB High­way!

Pun­ters who only back Matthew Dunn-trained horses in TAB High­ways were count­ing their bless­ings again with up and comer Tris­tan De An­gel win­ning his sec­ond and last one at Rose­hill Gar­dens yes­ter­day.

In do­ing so, the son of Not A Sin­gle Doubt ren­dered him­self in­el­i­gi­ble for fu­ture TAB High­way suc­cess but Dunn has his eye on an even big­ger prize next.

‘’He is el­i­gi­ble for the Coun­try Clas­sic over 2000m in a cou­ple of weeks so we’ll just get him home and as­sess him and if Matthew chooses to pull that rein and come back down then, we will,’’ the sta­ble’s Keira Dunn said.

Tris­tan De An­gel was given the per­fect ride by Tye Ang­land who has been a ma­jor con­trib­u­tor to Dunn’s un­par­al­leled suc­cess in the High­way races.

‘’ We are al­ways con­fi­dent when we have Tye Ang­land on board, he is a lovely as­set to the team and he gave him a lovely run dur­ing the race and was able to get the job done — again,’’ Dunn said.

“Tye started rid­ing for us way back in the day when Madotti was go­ing around in the Magic Mil­lions and from there he has just built a re­ally good re­la­tion­ship with the sta­ble.’’

As for Ang­land, he gave the flashy chest­nut the all clear for a rise in dis­tance af­ter con­sec­u­tive 1400m wins at his past two vis­its to Syd­ney.

“Step­ping up to a mile would be no prob­lem at all, even go­ing be­yond that,’’ Ang­land said.

‘’It takes him that fur­long to pick him­self up and re­ally get go­ing so, over the 2000m, you can ride him a bit qui­eter and save him for

that last run.’’
