Howmuchdoyouloveme Tipped for Ramornie Handicap 2012 Win

Consistent Sydney hoop Brenton Avdulla is confident he will be on the right horse in the 2012 Ramornie Handicap at Grafton next Wednesday having sung the Con Karakatsanis-trained Howmuchdoyouloveme plenty of praise leading into the race.


Howmuchdoyouloveme is set to contest the Ramornie Handicap 2012 next week

The first of the black type features running at the Northern Rivers course as part of the popular Grafton Cup Carnival, the $150,000 Listed WHK Ramornie Handicap (1200m) is scheduled to run next Wednesday July 11, 2012.

One exciting young horse heading towards the Ramornie Handicap 2012 field is three-year-old Written Tycoon gelding Howmuchdoyouloveme.

A winner of three of their four career starts so far the up-and-comer comes off successive Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival victories.

Avdulla was aboard for both as well as their win on debut at Randwick last October, Jay Ford taking over riding duties for Howmuchdoyouloveme’s only loss to date when second at Rosehill 10 days after their breakthrough success.

After the horse scored a tidy half length victory over 1200-metres at Eagle Farm on June 23 Avdulla is now confident they can step it up to stakes company and enjoy a black type victory in the Ramornie.

“He’s a very serious horse and has a lot of improvement,” Avdulla said.

“He’s a very gifted animal with a lot of ability but he just has to learn his trade and learn to settle; in saying that he’s learning all the time.

“I haven’t ridden too many horses that can gallop like him on the track.”

Avdulla also has rides on the previous Sunday and following Thursday during the carnival.

“I’m heading up to ride on Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday,” he said.

“I’m looking forward to the week up there.

“Things are pretty quiet in Sydney at the moment and this is one of the great country carnivals in Australia.”

Also on way to the Ramornie Handicap this year are the Peter Snowden-trained duo of Lonhro five-year-old Parthian and stakes winning six-year-old Skytrain.

Snowden will be vying for his third consecutive win in the feature handicap following the success of Pinwheel (2010) and Jerezana (2011).

“I’m looking forward to coming,” Snowden said.

Corey Brown meanwhile has been booked to ride the Angela Davies-trained Magic Cassius in the Ramornie Handicap, the talented Magic Albert four-year-old coming off a smart three and a half length win over 1200m at Newcastle.

Brown rode the gelding for a two length win at Canterbury back in December and is super keen to get on their back next week having missed their Newcastle run having had the flu.

“He was adamant he’s going to Grafton,” Brown’s manager Brett Grant said.

“Ever since he rode the horse back in December he’s had a good rap on him and while the Ramornie is a big jump in grade Corey reckons he’ll beat them.”
