Fromelles Targets ATC – Summer Cup 2012 Double

Kiwi mare Fromelles stays on in Sydney this summer with her Trans-Tasman trainer John Sargent, who has stables in both New Zealand and Australia, confident the six-year-old can be competitive in both this Saturday’s ATC Frank Underwood Cup and the upcoming 2012 Summer Cup.

The daughter of Savabeel, winner of the Group 3 Rotorua Cup (2200m) in the wet back in May, travelled over to Australia for the first time this spring and has had three runs down under so far.

Her first was a disappointing dead last when 10th in the Listed TAB Angst Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill.

She was also outclassed second-up when she failed to overcome a wide barrier draw to beat home just one other runner with 11th to Darci Be Good in the Group 3 Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m) on November 8.

Nine days after that Fromelles showed good improvement getting up to a more suitable staying distance when running a brave third behind Levi’s Choice in the World’s No. 1 Rum Handicap over 1900m at Rosehill.

This Saturday she races again in the $100,000 Listed ATC Cup (2200m) at Warwick Farm, formerly known as the Frank Underwood Cup, where she has drawn barrier six of eight with Blake Shinn booked to ride her for the first time replacing the suspended Nathan Berry.

“She has been progressing well and hit the line nicely last start,” Sargent said.

“She’s a stakes winner at home in the Rotorua Cup so she’s got a bit of class about her.

“She has finally matured this year which is why I brought her over here, as well as trying to kick the stable off here with a nice stayer.”

The ATC Cup odds are currently led by the Chris Waller-trained Moriarty ($2.70) who finished one better than Fromelles in the World’s No. 1 Rum Handicap.

Punters can then find Sargent’s New Zealand raider further down the markets at a quote of $7, an equal price with two other hopefuls Ward and Dreamworker who are drawn in barriers two and three respectively.

It is a wide open ATC Cup this year and Sargent, chasing his maiden stakes victory out of his new Warwck Farm operation, remains hopeful that Fromelles can score an upset as she, like many in the field, heads towards the $125,000 Group 3 Summer Cup (2400m) at Rosehill Gardens on Boxing Day.

“She’s not a carnival horse against the top weight-for-age stars but this is a very good level for her,” he said.

“She’s one of the horses that will hopefully get us away here in Sydney.

“I’ve got a dozen horses in at the moment here and hopefully I’ll get some more over (from New Zealand).

“I’m just progressing slowly, getting the systems right and the staff right and just building it up.”
