Royal on the hunt for four in a row; Weekend Preview

In form gelding All Too Royal will be looking for his fourth win in a row when he takes on the Golden Slipper Hospitality Handicap over 1100m at Rosehill on Saturday.

He has drawn a poor gate with 15 but he’s in a good groove at the moment and just keeps winning.

We are hopeful he will have some luck from the gate and if he does, he will put in another good performance.

Robbie Dolan takes the ride.

Earlier in the day at Rosehill we have Mask of Time kicking off his Autumn campaign in the 1500m Schweppes Handicap.

He has headed to Sydney to chase some rain and hopefully get some cut in the track and the weather forecasts at the moment suggest he will get it.

He will certainly come on for the run and this distance is short of his best but we still think he can run well.

Mask of Time will jump from barrier six with Sam Clipperton on board.

We then have Age Of Fire running in the Parramatta Cup over 1900m.

This former Weir galloper has also travelled to Sydney in the hopes of getting a bit of cut in the ground.

He is fit and looks very well so we think he has a good each way chance.

Jay Ford rides and the pair will jump from barrier two.

On Friday night at Moonee Valley we have three runners with the first being Kardashing who returns in a 1600m handicap after a quick freshen up.

She’s had a consistent preparation and ran well the other day but we’ve opted to put the blinkers on for the first time.

She will be ridden by stable apprentice Teo Nugent from barrier four and we think she will run well.

We then have Blonde Choice lining up in the Group 3 Typhoon Tracy Stakes over 1200m for 3YO fillies.

This race is a big step up in grade for her, but she has trained on very well and looks great.

Linda Meech takes the ride from barrier four and we are hopeful she can run well.

Our final runner of the night is Absolute who runs in a 1200m handicap.

This is his first run for the stable and we don’t know a whole lot about him yet, but he worked nicely last week and we’re hoping to learn a bit more about him after his run.

John Allen takes the ride from gate 13.

At Canterbury on Friday night we have one runner with Soul Star set to line up in a 1100m handicap.

She is so deserving of a win after being in the money in four of her last five starts and was very good the other day at Warwick Farm.

If she handles the quick backup, she should go pretty close to winning.

Sam Weatherley takes the ride from barrier one.

On Sunday our most notable runner is the people’s champion Black Sail who runs in a BM84 handicap over 1427m at Sale.

He is resuming after a quick break and this distance is probably just short of his best, but he is a tough customer and we expect him to run well.

Linda Meech will take the ride from barrier seven.
