Facile Tigre 2013 Goodwood Bound

Queensland gelding Facile Tigre will travel to Adelaide to chase Group 1 success next month in the 2013 Goodwood (1200m) at Morphetville.

The six-year-old hasn’t been seen on race day since flashing home for second behind Mrs Onassis in the Oakleigh Plate in February.

Facile Tigre won a 1000m trial at Werribee on Monday, leaving jockey Brad Rawiller confident he is on track for the top-line Adelaide sprint.

“He’s going really nicely. He’s obviously best when he’s fresh and on his trial this morning he’s ticking over beautifully,” Rawiller told TVN.

“He’ll probably have another jump-out at Flemington ahead of the Goodwood but it will be an easy one. He’s going along perfectly.”

The Jason McLachlan-trained galloper also showed his ability in the top grade in last year’s Oakleigh Plate when he finished third to fellow Queenslander Woorim.

Despite his placings at Group 1 level, Facile Tigre is yet to win at higher than Listed level, with his biggest career victory coming in the 2011 MSS Security Sprint.

The son of Catbird is one of a number of east-coast horses being aimed at The Goodwood, the second leg of Adelaide’s Group 1 sprint double which begins with the Robert Sangster Stakes on April 27.

Black Caviar won both races last year but is considered unlikely to return to South Australia, leaving the feature sprints up for grabs.

Classy filly Snitzerland is being set for the Robert Sangster and will head to The Goodwood if all goes to plan there.

The 2012 Golden Slipper runner-up has won seven of 13 starts and more than $1.5 million in prizemoney but is yet to taste Group 1 success.
