While trainer Peter Snowden was not there to see Bello win today’s 2013 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap, stable Foreman Brad Whiddup was at the track.

“(We) drew a good gate and it was a terrific ride,” Whiddup said in praise of jockey Jason Collett.

“He’s a terrific young rider and he’s going really well.”

Whiddup did not expect Bello to go on towards the Group 1 Doncaster Mile on April 20, 2013, and predicted that today’s run could be the gelding’s final autumn start.

“I don’t think so,” he said when asked about a possible Doncaster Mile start.

“I’m not sure what Peter’s plans are now but that’s a good grand final anyway.”

Jockey Jason Collett was thrilled to have scored the 2013 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap win aboard Bello.

“It’s fantastic,” he said.

“(We) got all the favours up the rail there and got a soft run.

“When that run opened up I was pretty happy then.

“Any win is good but to pick up a stakes win like this is pretty good.”
