Week review

  • It was a quiet week for the stable after last Saturday’s Gunbower meet was abandoned due wet weather, leaving only Albury’s meeting where the stable had two runners.
  • After a first-up win at Grenfell, Crimosa stepped up in class in race six’s BM58 (900m) and put in a strong showing. The six-year-old gelding settled behind the leader and put in a nice run down the straight but was beaten by less than two lengths.
  • Raise Hell ran in the same race and was seven lengths away at the finish.

Week ahead


  • ADR will head to today’s Tatura meeting with six runners targeted.
  • Rodeo Legend will kick the stable off in the first race of the day. He looks one of the main chances to break his maiden.
  • Rainbow Thief will attack race four’s BM64 (1600m) as he edges closer to November’s Berrigan Gold Cup. The eight-year-old gelding hasn’t been far away in his past few starts.
  • Race six (BM65 over 1450m) will see Mescaminto in action who should get a nice run from gate five.
  • Eamonn’s Memory will run in race seven (BM58) after a second place finish at Jerilderie last start, while he hasn’t been unplaced from three starts this prep.
  • Crimosa will be looking to continue his strong form in race eight (BM58 over 1000m) and looks one of the main chances.
  • Mojo Music will finish the day off in race seven’s BM58 (1000m). After a win last start at Leeton, the galloper comes into a stronger race but will be gunning for back-to-back wins.


  • Six runners will take part in Manangatang’s Cup meeting on Saturday.
  • Adelaide’s Diamond will run in race four’s BM52 (1550m).
  • The stable will get their first look at new acquisition Bentley Magic as he takes his place in race five (BM64 over 1550m).
  • Dangers and Wagunda will go head-to-head in race six, BM58 over 1175m. Dangers will be eyeing back-to-back wins after his victory at Grenfell last start.
  • To round the day out Deploy and Destroy and Turnaquid will take on race seven (BM58 over 1175m). Deploy and Destroy has had a dream start to his time at ADR with two wins on the trot and looks a chance to grab a third, while Turnaquid will be looking to find a jump in form.

  • College Dropout, Malabar Prince, Wilma Wombat and More Importance all won their respective heats, while Legal Zou finished second.
