2013 Ramornie Handicap Readies Adebisi for Spring

After injuring themselves last run Adebisi is looking to bounce back in Wednesday’s Ramornie Handicap 2013 at Grafton which their Brisbane based trainer Desleigh Forster hopes will be a springboard to bigger things later in the year.

Forster has never been represented in a $150,000 Listed Ramornie Handicap (1200m) but gets that chance this week with her Shovhog five-year-old Adebisi jumping from barrier eight of 15.

Equal second top-weight behind the defending champ Howmuchdyouloveme (60.5kg), after their third on the trot, Adebisi will carry 57.5kg with Michael Cahill in the saddle.

They were also a chance at running this Saturday in Melbourne with the $120,000 Listed Sir John Monash Stakes (1100m) taking place at Caulfield Racecourse.

However in the end Forster decided on the Ramornie during this week’s Grafton Cup Carnival believing they were not suited to the tight home turn at Caulfield despite their summer win at the track.

Adebisi only had their first interstate campaign last summer when Forster took them firstly to Sydney and then Melbourne for a three-run assault.

They kicked things off on a high with a Warwick Farm win in the Listed Razor Sharp Quality Handicap (1200m) on December 22.

Their second run, this time at Caulfield, was also a winning effort when they held on to take out the Group 3 Rubiton Stakes (1100m) by a mere nose before finishing a brave fifth beaten only two lengths by Mrs Onassis in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate at the same track and distance a fortnight later.

The Ramornie Handicap will be their first run since a failed title defense in the Listed Bribie Handicap (1200m) at Eagle Farm on March 30.

Injured during the race Adebisi was beaten nearly 11 lengths way beating home just one other runner to finish 15th to River Lad who is another major Ramornie hope tomorrow.

They have spent the time since recovering and Forster is confident they’re ready to go with an eye also on the upcoming spring riches, the horse also boasting an excellent first-up record with four wins from seven starts.

“He got galloped on during the Bribie. It was nothing major but we decided to give him a break,” Forster said.

“The main aim is to take him back to Sydney and Melbourne and the Ramornie looks like a good race to start off in and he gets in well at the weights.

“There will be a lot of speed in the race which will suit.”
