27th April 2012 Runners- Perth
Captain Americo | 2:35 | 0-125 | 3m 7f | The GA Engineering Highland National Handicap Steeple Chase
Jockey: Richie McGrath
Sponsor: Pharma Tooling
Captain Americo is on the comeback trail with his last run for the season. Captain was supposed to run in last weeks Scottish Grand National but sadly the Thursday morning prior to the race he had a slight bought of colic which ruled him out from racing. He appears to have now recovered and is in good form, we hope for a creditable race from him. The ground, trip and course should suit and although he is carrying top weight with 11st/12 he has the physic to carry this well.
Hockenheim | 4:50 | 0-130 | 3m 3f | The Crabbies Alcoholic Ginger Beer Conditional Jockeys Handicap Hurdle Race
Jockey: Nathan Moscrop
Hockenheim is relatively new to the yard, this being his first start for us and will be a case of a fact finding mission as I believe that his Handicap Mark is currently too high. The ground, trip and course should suit, he works well with Nathan who has been schooling him at home. I do not think that Hockenheim will disgrace us today as his work is proven and is a lovely big stamp of a horse.
