Strong Nominations for 2012 Christmas Handicap – Morphetville Boxing Day

The sun may be beating down across the country but that doens’t mean the racing stops and a strong 18-horse list of nominations has been announced for the Listed 2012 Christmas Handicap (1400m) which will take place at Morphetville on Boxing Day.

One of the top entrants is dual stakes winner Conservatorium who has secured six wins from 20 career outings.

The Gary Kennewell-trained gelding has been racing in Perth recently, having finished fifth in the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes and third in the Group 3 Schahill Stakes.

Bringing terrific form into the race is Trevor Dansie’s four-year-old Hidden Value who has won his four most recent outings.

The son of Face Value is yet to race away from Morphetville but has been outstanding of late and secured a breakthrough stakes win on December 8 when claiming the Listed City Of Marion Stakes (1200m).

From 11 career starts he has tasted victory an impressive seven times and finished in the minor placings on two other occasions.

Phillip Stokes has entered Just Discreet who has been solid this preparation and was last seen running third in the City Of Marion Stakes.

Veteran gelding Verco Road is a dual stakes winner and despite being nine years old has shown he can still match it with the younger horses on the racetrack.

The Rubiton gelding has had five starts since September and while he hasn’t tasted victory this campaign, he has not finished worse than fourth and was a narrow runner-up in the John Pope Handicap on December 1.

Others nominated for the Christmas Handicap include Richard Jolly-trained mare Golden Penny, the lightly-raced Rziz and John Hyam’s last-start winner Petman.
