GORDONVALE CUP DAY

BEST BET

JIMMY HOFFA R5 No.9 The Stephen Mass­ing­ham-trained geld­ing gave us a handy fill-up at $2.60 last Satur­day and we will stick with the eight-yearold. He meets harder com­pany this af­ter­noon than what he beat at Can­non Park but he drops 3.5kg from that run. A Gordonvale Cup will go nicely with the Ma­reeba Cup won last month by Jimmy Hoffa.

NEXT BEST

BELLA SASH R3 No.1 Just beaten by the qual­ity Mis­hani Redman last start at Cairns, Bruce Hunter finds a suit­able race for his mare here. Bella Sash goes up in weight but should have the class.

ONE TO WATCH

PARK HUS­SLER R2. No.6 Michael White­house and his mare broke her maiden sta­tus with her fourth run in North Queens­land last month at Townsville. The four-year-old beat Mer­cury Bul­let that day, who won well on Thurs­day at the same track.

THE TRAINER

STEPHEN MASS­ING­HAM JIMMY HOFFA

R5 No.9 “He seems to back up well, he is a horse that you do need to run him ev­ery fort­night, and he has been go­ing well this prep so while he is go­ing well, we will keep go­ing with that.

“He seems to be thriv­ing now half­way through his prep.”
