Forget resumes at Muswellbrook on Sunday

Kim will send impressive trial winner Forget to Muswellbrook on Sunday to contest race 6 Mt Arthur Coal W Harris Bm 70 over 1280m. The Exceed and Excel gelding races well fresh and has recorded win and a placing over the distance. The stable believes that Forget has found a very suitable race to kick off his campaign and Kim could not be happier with the way the gelding has progressed since his impressive 7 length trial victory earlier this month. “Forget is very well he trialled super the other day. He does come to hand quickly and will be very competitive with any luck – It looks a nice race to kick off’ added Kim. Mitchell Bell will be aboard Forget with the pair jumping from gate 8.

Newcastle Saturday

The Kim Waugh stable will send two gallopers up the highway to Saturday’s provincial meeting held at the spacious Newcastle racetrack. Oxford Art will take her place in race 6 Glasurit 90 line Maiden Plate over 1400m whilst Touch Heaven will line up 40mins later in race 7 Kloster Paint Maiden also over 7 furlongs.

Oxford Art has freshen up nicely since her last start failure and has pleased Kim in a recent trial at Newcastle. Oxford Art is a lightly raced mare by Excellent Art who has taken time to grow into herself and mature “She is a lovely big strong mare who stands over 17 hands high, she will really appreciate the big and straight of Newcastle the tempo of the 1400m will also suit her. I’d expect her to get back from the barrier and hit the line late as I believe she will be better suited over further in time” said Kim. Mitchell Bell will be aboard with the pair jumping from gate 9.

Touch Heaven a veteran of two starts will be out to atone for his luckless 4th when traveling wide the entire trip at Gosford a fortnight ago. Kim could not be happier with the horse and has trained on well since. ‘Touch Heaven is rock hard fit. The big Newcastle track will suit him along with the step up to 1400 looks ideal. With even luck it looks a very nice race and Touch Heaven will be very competitive” said Kim. Senior jockey Grant Buckley will guide Touch Heaven from a good gate in barrier 2 in Saturday’s event.

Sleepwalker heading to Gosford

Sleepwalker steps out for the second time this campaign lining up in race 4 W N Bull Funerals Maiden Plate over 1100m at Thursday’s Gosford meeting. The lightly raced Dreamscape gelding has pleased Kim since his first up performance when finishing a close second at Gosford 10 days ago and will strip fitter after taking benefit from that run. “Sleepwalker is very well, he is a gelding who has shown nice ability at home and is still learning what it’s all about. The horse has drawn ideally in barrier 1 and if he jumps well from that gate he’ll be very competitive. The extra distance will suit” added Kim.  The stable has secured the services of Tye Angland who will be aboard Sleepwalker for the first time, jumping from gate 1.
