Bold Glance to take on Southerners in 2012 Warwick Stakes

Queensland gelding Bold Glance will take on a number of quality southern rivals in the Group 2 2012 Warwick Stakes (1400m) on Saturday.

The Warwick Farm feature stands as the kickoff point for a four-race Sydney campaign that will culminate in the Group 1 2012 Epsom Handicap (1600m) in November.

Trained by Norm Hilton in Toowoomba, the seven-year-old suffered problems with injury and illness over the past six months but returned to form in July with a third-place effort in the Listed Ascot Handicap at Eagle Farm before winning the Mount Franklin Handicap at Doomben.

The son of Sequalo won a barrier trial at the Gold Coast on August 14 in comfortable fashion and has pleased his trainer.

“After he won at Doomben I took him out to the farm for a few days to freshen up and he’s done really well,” Hilton said.

Leading Queensland jockey Chris Munce rode the 2011 Doncaster placegetter in the trial and he will accompany him to Sydney for the Warwick Stakes.

Hilton said the seven-year-old will have a further two runs in Sydney before his grand final in the Epsom on October 6.

“[After the Warwick Stakes] He then runs in the Tramway Handicap and another race before the Epsom,” he said.

A winner of nine of 35 starts and almost $800,000 in prizemoney, Bold Glance impressed in his last Sydney trip with third-place efforts in both the Doncaster Prelude and the Doncaster Mile.

Joining Bold Glance in being nominated for the Warwick Stakes is in-form Queensland gelding Startsmeup who is chasing a third consecutive victory.
