Payne Chasing Winning Glory in 2012 Winter Challenge

David Payne is admant Winning Glory can bounce back from a disappointing last-start effort and perform at this best in Saturday’s Listed $100,000 2012 Winter Challenge (1600m) at Warwick Farm.

Winning Glory

Winning Glory will look to return to form in the 2012 Winter Challenge at Warwick Farm

The rising five-year-old finished 15 lengths behind winner Banco Mo on July 7 as he laboured to run home in sixth position over 1800 metres at Flemington.

But the Rosehill-based trainer is confident Winning Glory will return to the form that saw him shine over 1500 metres the start before to win a BM92 Handicap by more than a length.

“It was a really bad ride,” Payne said.

“Disregard the run. I have freshened him up since then and he is ready for Saturday.”

Nathan Berry will assume the ride on the son of One Cool Cat who will come from a favourable barrier two position.

Winning Glory is currently paying $5.50 to win the Sydney feature, with Melbourne gelding Forty Thirty ($4.40) and last-start winner Irish Dream ($4.60) currently jostling for favouritism.

Forty Thirty has been in career best form in recent times, winning twice and finishing a worst of third in his six most recent starts.

Irish Dream showed her ability at this level last start when storming down the outside to score an upset victory in the Listed Winter Stakes two weeks ago.

Just behind the top three in the betting is Darley-owned gelding Erewhon who joins the majority of the field in chasing a first black-type win.

A winner of four of 15 starts, Erewhon is coming off a narrow victory at Warwick Farm on June 23 in the South West Kerbing BM90.
