Star hopeful to fall back into the winner’s stall; Boxing Day Preview

Three-year-old colt Star Fall surprised the team with how sharp he was last start at Pakenham and we are hopeful he can make it two-in-a-row on Wednesday when he tackles the Joe Brown Handicap over 1100m at Caulfield.

We were expecting him to run well first-up but thought he needed the run to bring him on however he won and did it with ease which proved he has the class he has always shown in his work.

The son of Zoustar has improved since then and we think the track and distance will suit him very well so we are hopeful he will go close.

Linda Meech will retain the ride on Star Fall and they will jump from barrier nine.

Earlier in the day at Caulfield, we have Omorose running in the Allan Wicks Handicap over 1200m.

There is no doubt she will have to improve on her recent form to win this race, but we would be hopeful that she can get some good metro form under her belt as that is invaluable for fillies and mares later in life.

She is fit and well and if she can produce a career-best effort then hopefully, she is in the mix.

Tahlia Hope will take the ride from gate nine.

Our final runner of the day at Caulfield is Black Sail in the 1600m Ladbrokes Handicap.

The First Light Racing galloper has had a quick freshen up since his runner-up finish in the Wodonga Cup but he is in good form and seems very well.

Black Sail will be ridden by Linda Meech from barrier four and we think he will run well.

Further north at Randwick we have Quality Approach looking to add a picket fence next to his name and score his third win in a row in a 2400m BM70 handicap.

He is a horse that is in great form as is continuing to improve each start.

Corey Brown rides from gate 10 and we are hopeful he won’t be too far away.
