Fools’ pace a big help

Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - SPORT -

TRAINER Jar­rod McLean is back­ing Trap For Fools’ fron­trun­ning style to avoid a re­peat of last year’s chaotic Kingston Town Clas­sic in Perth to­day.

McLean and his boss Darren Weir still have night­mares over $3.20 favourite Black Heart Bart be­ing smashed from pil­lar to post early and los­ing any chance of win­ning the 2017 Group 1 event.

“Trap For Fools will come across from bar­rier 10 and go for­ward,” McLean said of the Mackin­non Stakes win­ner, an $8.50 chance. “His racing pat­tern elim­i­nates the bad luck.”
