Poste Restante to Take on Southerners in 2012 Summer Cup

A former New Zealand mare now based in Queensland will travel to Rosehill to take on the southerners in the Group 3 2012 Summer Cup (2400m) on Boxing Day.

Poste Restante

Poste Restante heads to next week's Summer Cup in good form

The four-year-old remained with Desleigh Forster at Eagle Farm following the Brisbane Winter Carnival and has so far produced consistent results for her new trainer.

Formerly trained by Howie Matthews, Poste Restante first stepped out under Forster in October where she reeled off an excellent finish to claim a narrow victory in the Kanga Couriers Handicap (1200m) at Doomben over a distance that was far short of ideal.

After running fourth second-up at Doomben, the daughter of Postponed has failed to disappoint with three consecutive victories at Eagle Farm.

Forster applied blinkers for her most recent outing but said they will be removed for the Summer Cup after the promising stayer raced a bit too “keenly.”

While Poste Restante has not been overly convicing in her wins, she has done enough each time to finish at the front of the field, leaving Forster with no hesitations about taking her to Sydney with stablemate Adebisi who will run in Saturday’s Razor Sharp Handicap.

“Normally I wouldn’t take her down this early but she and Adebisi are great mates and they’re always stabled next to each other at home,” Forster said.

“On face value she didn’t look impressive [last start].

“But when you get down to the nitty gritty they walked in the race and she had to stop and come around their heels with 58kg on her back.”

Among the top challengers Poste Restante will have to overcome at Rosehill next week are Werribee Cup winner Unusual Suspect and Tony McEvoy’s in-form import Le Roi.
