Price’s Pressing 2014 JJ Atkins Claims

Caulfield’s Mick Price is looking forward to the trip to Queensland with his promising young colt Pressing, the undefeated two-year-old eyeing JJ Atkins 2014 glory next month at Eagle Farm Racecourse.

One of three elite levels on the line-up for Stradbroke Handicap Day on June 7 in the penultimate Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival feature race meeting, the $500,000 Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) is on the agenda for the son of Sebring who will be floated to Brisbane from Melbourne.

Price has made the decision to take them to the sunshine state via road instead of flying and will kick off the trip at midnight on Tuesday.

They’ll be joined on the road by their Group 3 winning stable mate Jazz Song.

The Fastnet Rock filly was last seen crossing second to the now retired Miracles Of Life in the Group 2 Euclase Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville on May 3 and so has proven she can handle interstate assignments.

She’ll run against her own kind in the Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes (1350m) on Doomben 10,000 Day on Saturday week all going to plan.

As for Pressing, they’ve had the two runs for two wins to date both at home at Caulfield.

On debut they jumped awkwardly showing their greenness but came from the back of the pack to win by a quarter length on April 12 over the 1200m.

They backed up at the same track and distance 21 days later with Brad Rawiller riding them for another win over the same horse, runner-up Petrology prepared by David Hayes, in the $120,000 Listed Sky High Mt Dandenong Stakes (1200m) where they did it from near the back of the field again.

Both times Price was surprised to see his horse home first after less than impressive trackwork performances over less distance.

“Shorter distances just don’t suit him,” Price told AAP.

“He makes his own mind up when he goes, but when he does get going he’s got a good finish.”

It was that Black Type victory that earmarked them as a candidate for Brisbane where they are expected to have their first run in the traditional JJ Atkins lead-up, the $250,000 Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1350m) at Doomben on May 24.

However the youngster must first prove to Price they’ve handled the travelling before Pressing is confirmed for either assignment.

“Sometimes you take them away and they thrive and sometimes you take them away and they stress and go backwards,” Price said.

“If he doesn’t thrive, I will spell him.”
