Wyong trainer Tracey Bartley is confident his mare Miss Redoble can perform well in tomorrow’s $150,000 Polytrack Provincial Championship Qualifier at Kembla, despite a wide barrier draw.
Bartley said the four-year-old, who put together back to back wins last preparation, had been unlucky at her two runs this time in.
“She hasn’t raced with a lot of luck but I’m happy with how she is going,” he said.
“Barrier 16 doesn’t worry me. I think she can get into a better spot. She really needs the 1400m so this suits perfectly and if she gets clear running, she will be finishing hard.
“I’ve booked Travis Wolfgram. He’s a very good rider and I’m happy with that.”
Miss Redoble is one of three Wyong hopes in the Qualifier, with Kristen Buchanan saddling up last start winner Oakfied Geronimo and consistent gelding Hubble.
Wyong trainers already have four trainers heading for the final, with Kim Waugh and Damien Lane each qualifying two horses at Hawkesbury and Newcastle respectively.
The Wyong Qualifier, the last in the series, will be run on March 30, with the club planning a big day of entertainment.
