In the same event last year Heart Of Dreams overcame a less than ideal run to finish just under two lengths behind winner and current favourite Typhoon Tracy. In fact during the closing stages Heart Of Dreams showed good pace in closing ground on the winner.
This year though Heart Of Dreams has an ideal barrier draw (2) whilst Typhoon Tracy will start from a wide gate (11). This combination of previous form and barrier luck has Price full of expectation.
“It looks like Heart Of Dreams is going to get the run of the race,” Price said.
Currently on Luxbet Heart Of Dreams is fielding steady support from punters and hovering around the $12 fixed price mark.
Connections are hoping for a better performance than the disappointing last start seventh in the Group 2 Australia stakes at Moonee Valley.
He will be ridden by champion jockey Damien Oliver and Price has made a few changes to get the most out of the five-year-old.
“I’ve put the winkers on him because he shied pretty badly at Moonee Valley in the Australia Stakes when Ortensia shifted out towards him,” Price said.
“We considered putting blinkers on him and we still might later, but these Show A Heart horses do race well in winkers so we’ve gone for them for Saturday.
“He’ll run a bold race. I’m very happy with him”.
