The Kim Waugh stable will be well represented with a trio of gallopers including Chicago Stomp, Trumbull and Mighty Marmalade all bound for Wyong on Monday.
Middle distance gelding Chicago Stomp resumes from a spell in race 2 Great Northern on Tap at Wyong Class 1 Handicap over 1350m. The Street Cry gelding has been well prepared for his return to the races with four trials under his belt and heads to his first up performance fit and well. “Chicago Stomp is very well, he’s really pleased me since his return to the stable following and whilst his form suggests that he may be better of a touch further he is more than capable of running well fresh. Monday’s assignment looks a very even race on paper. The gelding has drawn ideally in barrier 5 and should be able to settle mid field and with a solid tempo up front I’m sure he will be hitting the line late” added Kim. Brenton Avdulla has been booked to ride Chicago Stomp with the pair jumping from barrier 5.
Trumbull makes his race day debut taking the field in race 4 Hudson Homes 2yo Maiden Handicap over 1200m. The Darci Brahma gelding has shown natural talent in two recent trials scoring nicely on each occasion over 800m and has continued to please in the lead up to his first race start on Monday. “Trumbull is a lovely 2yr old who has really impressed me both on and off the track, He is bred to get over further and will continue to improve with time but both of his trials have been very pleasing and he has shown nice ability. Monday’s event is a little tricky to line up with a large number of first starters but I could not be happier with Trumbull’s prep so far and I’m sure he will prove most competitive” added Kim. Brenton Avdulla has secured the ride aboard Trumbull with the pair jumping from barrier 6 in the field of seven following two early scatchings
Mighty Marmalade steps out for her second career start in race 6 WWW.WYONGRACECLUB.COM.AU 3yr old Maiden Plate over 1200m. The Duke of Marmalade filly looked a touch unlucky motoring home from back in the field and has continued to please since her first up performance with Kim and the team confident of another strong performance with the slight step out to 1200m for the first time. “Might Marmalade is really well, she is a filly that can be a touch slow to begin which is a slight concern however she can be quite as she showed at her first start she is a filly that has nice ability. From barrier 10 we will most likely look to find cover early and I’m sure she will once again prove most competitive in the big field” added Kim. Brenton Avdulla takes the ride aboard Mighty Marmalade, with the pair jumping from barrier 10.
