Prince Dylan saved for Cessnock on Friday.

Brilliant last start winner Hawkesbury winner Prince Dylan has been scratched from Wyong and will be saved for Cessnock on Friday afternoon where he will lead the filed out in race 6 Wine Country Motor Inn Bm60 over 1150m.

The Dylan Thomas gelding was rewarded with his consistency with a tough all the way victory in stronger provincial grade and heads to the hunter valley circuit in a great frame of mind following his confidence win at Hawkesbury a fortnight ago. “I couldn’t be happier with Prince Dylan he has continued to please both on and off the track and I’m sure he is more than capable of continuing on his winning ways in what looks a very suitable race on paper. Prince Dylan really enjoys racing on speed and from the ideal gate the gelding should be able to get into a nice rhythm set his own tempo and will certainly be hard to run down on his current form. Prince Dylan has been allotted top weight of 61kgs he is a big horse that can and will carry weight and I have decided to engage heavy weight jockey Aaron Bullock who knows the gelding well” added Kim.

I have been happy with all three trials and the mare has drawn ideally in barrier 3 and she should get a lovely run in transit and I will be pleased to see Staraday hit the line. Staraday will wear a tongue tie for the first time on Thursday” added Kim. Inform jockey Tye Angland has been booked to ride Staraday, with the pair jumping from barrier 4 in the field of 13.

Oxford Magic resumed from a spell five weeks ago and has been kept up to the mark with a solid trial performance scoring nicely over 1000m ten days ago. “Oxford Magic is well, he’s a horse that has shown nice ability with loads of upside that continues to learn his trade. The talented gelding brngs some solid provincal form lines to thursday’s event and combined with a very strong performances on his home track when he is unbeaten in two runs indicates another consistent performance by Oxford Magic. The gelding has drawn lovely in barrier 4 and I’m sure Tye will be able settle him close to the speed and with any luck in running Oxford Magic will be very strong late” added Kim.

Oxford Poet jumped nicely taking up the lead and always travelling like the winner. Tye Angland rated the hulking son of Dylan Thomas to a tee allowing Oxford Poet to bowl along before kicking strongly over just after straightening to score a commanding 41/2 length victory. “Oxford Poet was brilliant to lead from the outset to score a very strong win. He’s been a wonderful horse for the stable he’s just so honest and always gives a great sight he’s such a pleasure to have in the stable. I will take him home and have a look at the calendar before deciding where we go to next. Tye rode him beautifully’ added Kim.
