Bold Glance Targeting 2012 Epsom Handicap

Former Doncaster place-getter Bold Glance will return to Sydney this year to target the Group 1 Epsom Handicap (1600m) in October.

Trained by Norm Hilton in Toowoomba, the talented six-year-old has made a promising return from a throat problem and will have his third winter start at Doomben this weekend.

Hilton said he was happy with the progress made by the son of Sequalo and is hoping he can return to the sort of form that made him one of Queensland’s best horses in 2011.

“He’s right to go, he ran a good race last start. He’s come back well and we’re really happy with him,” Hilton said.

“We’ve got the Epsom in the back of our minds.”

A winner of eight of 34 starts and more than $750,000 in prize money, the experienced gelding showed promising signs of reclaiming his best form last start when third in the Listed Ascot Handicap at Eagle Farm.

The third-place effort was his first top three finish since the 2011 Doncaster, with this year’s autumn campaign cut short following the discovery of the throat issue that required surgery.

Bold Glance has been named to carry 59.5kg on Saturday but will drop down with a claim from in-form apprentice Anthony Allen.

Other horses already declared as targeting the Epsom Handicap include Chris Waller-trained Said Com and Australian Oaks runner-up Aliyana Tilde.

Said Com had a mixed autumn, finishing runner-up in the Group 1 Randwick Guineas to star filly Mosheen before struggling to finish seventh in the Rosehill Guineas.

Aliyana Tilde trainer Kerry Parker will use the Epsom to determine whether his stable star is ready for longer races later in the spring including the prestigious Caulfield Cup.
