Price Confident of Pressing Success with Oliver

Trainer Mick Price is confident of continued success for so far un-beaten colt Pressing in this weekend’s Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1200m) at Brisbane’s Doomben Racecourse after champion jockey Damien Oliver was confirmed to pick up the ride.

Confirmed for a maiden hit-out on the Doomben course proper on Tuesday morning, Price told AAP he could not be happier with the condition in which Pressing has arrived, and is expecting a strong performance ahead of a likely tilt at the major Group 1 J.J. Atkins (1600m) on June 7th.

“Damien rides many of our horses in work and he had a good knowledge of the horse” Price said.

“He just did some even time on Saturday and he worked well.

“They will work over 1000 metres tomorrow (Tuesday) and Pressing is very well in himself, so I’m happy with the way things are going.”

Arguably facing his biggest test to date in the BRC Sires’ Produce, Price said no matter the result, he will be happy if the Sebring colt takes it to his opponents and hits the line hard.

“All he has to do to meet expectations is to hit the line” Price said.”

“Whether it’s a win or placing or a fast finish, that’s all I’m looking for and hopefully we can train him on and move along to the J.J. Atkins.”

Debuting with an impressive turn of foot to overcome poor running position and win the Mindy Green 2.y.o. Plate (1200m) on April 12th, Pressing never looked bother in the Listed Sky High Mt Dandenong Stakes (1200m) last time out; strolling home to find the line nearly four lengths in the clear of his closest rivals.

A final field and barrier draw for the 2014 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes is due to be released on Wednesday morning.
