Ramornie Handicap 2015 Target for Nuclear Class

Tas Morton’s Port Macquarie-based mare Nuclear Class will begin her charge towards next month’s 2015 Ramornie Handicap when she resumes racing at Rosehill this weekend.

The four-year-old daughter of Snitzel was last seen winning the Wild Oats Wines Newmarket Handicap (1100m) at Armindale back in March, Saturday seeing her run for the first time since breaking the track record there in an $85,000 Benchmark 85 Handicap (1100m) sprint.

She is one of 13 nominations for the showdown and is allocated 59kg for a race that could also feature the likes of rising 10-year-old Jest Crewsin’ who ran second in the Winter Dash at Tamworth last time out and progressive Danehill Dancer three-year-old Zizumba.

How Nuclear Class runs first-up will indicate whether to press onto the Grafton Cup Carnival next month for a shot at the lucrative $150,000 Listed Ramornie Handicap (1200m) on July 8.

“She is heading towards the Ramornie and Saturday’s race will be a stepping stone towards that,” Morton told AAP.

While yet to win when resuming to date, she does boast two seconds from as many first-up runs and so is proven fresh heading into her Rosehill Gardens run.

With two wins from three starts at the distance (1100m), the only concern now for the mare’s trainer Morton is locking in a rider for the run this weekend that can take advantage of the apprentice claim to help her with the hefty weight allocation.

“I’m looking around for a good three-kilo kid (apprentice) because she’s an easy horse to ride,” Morton said, the mare having been ridden by an apprentice in four of her previous nine wins.

Two other top sprinters set to resume in Saturday’s Sydney showdown are the Kris Lees-trained God’s Own four-year-old Brook Road who won the Listed Tattersall’s Classic (1200m) at Doomben in late November last year and Gary Portelli’s 60kg top weight Straturbo who boasts a good first-up record (5-2-2-0).

Also Ramornie Handicap-bound this winter are the likes of the Tom Bourke-trained Rocky King who won at the Sunshine Coast over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend and Paul Perry’s Listed June Stakes winner in Sydney over the weekend Wouldn’t It Be Nice.
