Redzel looking to turn the tables on Russian Revolution
Team Redzel make their way north for another shot at Group One glory following his strong last start win and gallant second to gun 3-year-old Russian Revolution last time he attacked the big stage.
With the Doomben 10,000 being run over 1200m this year it now slots in where most remember the tradition BTC Cup won by none other than Triple Crown’s very own Hot Snitzel in 2015.
The exhilarating red rocket known as Redzel knows only way one – Lead at all costs – and following his all the way victory in the Group 3 Tab Hallmark Stakes over 1200m a month ago he is primed and ready to go once again.
Having drawn perfectly in barrier 3 punters and form analysts alike put Redzel in front early and hopefully that is where he stays.
“He’s a very hard customer to get past, Redzel” co-trainer Paul Snowden said.
Once again his biggest challenger will be the stablemate Russian Revolution who won by a neck last time the two met in the Group One Galaxy in March.
“The last time these two met in the Galaxy in a handicap, Russian beat him a neck” stated fellow co-trainer Peter Snowden.
“Under Weight For Age conditions he’s a lot better off so he might turn the tables”.
One thing for certain is that the loyal band of owners and supporters will once again be heard as they will their favourite son over the line on Saturday in Queensland.
The horse that has brought together a taxi driver, doctor, teacher, policeman, tech guru’s and the list goes on but they all have one thing in common and that is their love for their champion Redzel.
Whilst all eyes are on Brisbane Triple Crown Syndications will be well represented at both the Scone standalone meeting and Kembla Grange tomorrow.
On a big card of feature racing last start Listed Nation Sprint winner Gold Symphony will be looking to stamp his passport for a trip north with a win in the Listed Luskin Star Stakes.
With a nomination for Group One Stradboke Handicap in June this 4-year-old son of Reward For Effort will be hoping that a strong performance tomorrow will have him right in contention for Queensland’s biggest race.
Also making the trip north to Scone is Triple Crown warrior Dothraki. A winner of over $1,000,000 in prizemoney Dothraki will be hoping to go one better than his last start second in the Group Three Maurice McCarten Stakes. With Tye Angland in the saddle ‘Doth’ will be looking for win number 7 as he continues to fly the flag for Triple Crown.
Triple Crown will also have a dual pronged attack down south at Kembla Grange tomorrow. With Rockin’ Red Rocket looking to break his maiden and 2-year-old first starter Hard Gold making his first racetrack appearance in the Triple Crown colours.
