2012 Royal Ascot-Bound Foxwedge Impresses In Trial

Randwick trainer John O’Shea is pleased with the with the trial performance of his Royal Ascot 2012 hopeful Foxwedge despite the crack youngster going down to unknown filly Jester’s Girl.


Foxwedge is on track for a trip to the UK for the 2012 Royal Ascot Carnival

Fastnet Rock colt Foxwedge is preparing to head off overseas to England for their esteemed Royal Ascot Carnival, and had their final run down under ahead of the trip at Rosehill Gardens on Friday morning.

Upset winner of the Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) over Hay List at Moonee Valley back in March, three-year-old Foxwedge backed up from that elite level win 22 days later to finish dead last behind Master Of Design when beaten four lengths in the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on April 14.

Found to have mucus in his throat for the TJ Smith Stakes, O’Shea was happy to see the horse had come through that failure okay as proven by their performance in the trial.

Ridden by Christian Reith Foxwedge finished four and a half lengths away second to the Gerald Ryan-trained Jester’s Girl over 900m in the hitout that was won in 53.71.

The winning time was the second fastest of the seven trials run over the 900m at the early morning meet.

Just a quarter length off them was then the fellow O’Shea-trained Hendricus.

“He had a nice blow out as it was the first serious gallop he’s had since the TJ Smith,” O’Shea said of Foxwedge who is set to travel from Sydney by float for Melbourne this Sunday to begin quarantine ahead of flying out to England next week.

“He looked big and strong and healthy.

“This will bring him along nicely for his trip overseas.

“His action was great and we saw all the things we needed to see.”

Foxwedge’s main aim in the UK is the Group 1 King’s Stand Stakes (1000m) on June 19.

The King’s Stand Stakes is just four days before Peter Moody’s glamour mare Black Caviar looks to extend her unbeaten career record to an incredible 22 in the Group 1 Diamond Jubilee Stakes, a race that Foxwedge could also run in.

In the early Diamond Jubilee Stakes odds at some Australian bookies Black Caviar sits as the $1.35 favourite ahead of Foxwedge on $11.

For the King’s Stands Stakes 2012 Foxwedge is the $5.50 favourite ahead of fellow green and golder Ortensia ($6.50).

Paul Messara’s classy Scone-based mare was last seen running away to win the Group 1 Al Quoz Sprint (1000m) at Meydan on Dubai World Cup Night on March 31 when ridden by Craig Williams.
