Murwillumbah trainer Matthew Dunn is looking...
Money continues to roll in for the former WA-trained star Disposition to continue his ace run of form in Melbourne with a Group 1 win on Caulfield Guineas Day in the Toorak Handicap 2015 on Saturday afternoon.
The ultra-consistent Reset four-year-old is now prepared by Lee & Anthony Freedman and since his last Perth run when second to Moriarty in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) back in December, he has had four top four runs in Melbourne leading up to the $400,000 Group 1 David Jones NBCF Toorak Handicap (1600m).
There are 17 hopefuls left in the Toorak Handicap field this season, Disposition leading the betting at Ladbrokes.com.au who are offering Best Tote or SP + 20% on every single Caulfield race this Guineas Day!
After opening at $5.50, Disposition has firmed into $4.80 to become the third Toorak Handicap favourite in as many years to win joining Solzhenitsyn (2013) and Trust In A Gust (2014).
He jumps from barrier seven, which Solzhenitsyn did for his second win two years ago, and was last seen running second when nosed out of the win by fellow Toorak hopeful Stratum Star (steady at $7) in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) at the track last time out on September 26.
Also firming in the Toorak Handicap betting markets this spring are the Darren Weir-trained 58kg top weight Lucky Hussler ($6 into $5.50) out to improve on his close sixth in the Sir Rupert and return to his Group 1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) winning form from the autumn, Peter Moody’s six-year-old mare Abidewithme ($13 into $11) who had barrier 17 of 18 when eighth in the Sir Rupert but who is drawn far better in 11 this weekend on the 52kg minimum, and the last start Caulfield 1700m winning stablemate Kenjorwood ($21 into $17) up in class.
Most of the others in the field have eased out in their price for the Toorak Handicap upset today including the Robert Smerdon-trained Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes third placegetter in the autumn on the back of two Melbourne mile wins in Group company during a stellar campaign Noble Protector ($8.50 out to $11), Moody’s third runner Hi World ($13 out to $14) who has won four of his 10 career starts to date, Hopfgarten ($14 out to $16) for Brisbane’s Robert Heathcote who trained dual Toorak champ Solzhenitsyn (2012, 2013), and Chris Waller’s Sir Rupert Clarke fourth placed seven-year-old Strawberry Boy ($11 out to $16) who has won four of his six previous runs over the distance.
