Not Listenin’tome Tuning Up for 2015 Hong Kong Sprint

Trainer John Moore has been pleased with the class displayed by Not Listenin’tome since his arrival in Hong Kong, and is hopeful the former Sydney sprinter can complete an ideal tune-up for next month’s 2015 Hong Kong Sprint (1200m) in Saturday’s International Trial (1200m) at Sha Tin.

Beginning his racing career under the guidance of Team Hawkes, Not Listenin’tome immediately stamped his claims as one to watch upon debuting during the 2013 Spring Carnival; winning a pair of minor sprints before running second in each of the Group 3 Telstra Phonewords Stakes (1200m) and Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m).

Having already posted a number of impressive results in his first year for Moore including a win in the Group 3 National Day Cup (1000m) on October 1st, Moore told the South China Morning Post he is thrilled with the condition of the Dylan Thomas gelding and is hopeful he is up to the mark on Saturday.

“There really is room for a nice sprinting prospect here at the moment and I’m keeping my eyes open to buy the right young sprinter,” Moore said.

“In the short term, I hope we can see the best of Not Listenin’tome on the weekend and he can make his case for the International next month.

“I admit the jury is still out on whether he’s our next big sprinter, but there was a lot to like about his convincing win first-up this season and then he had real excuses behind Able Friend last time.

“I like to think he can win this and be competitive on December 13, but to maintain my confidence I really want to see him one, two or three on Saturday.”

Securing a career total of five wins and as many minors through sixteen competitive starts so far, Not Listenin’tome debuted in Hong Kong in April for third in the Group 3 Bauhina Sprint Trophy (1000m); progressing to third in the Pacific Ocean Handicap (1000m) before breaking through for a maiden win in the Group 3 Sha Tin Vase (1200m).

Ladbrokes.com.au is currently offering the best early 2015 Hong Kong Sprint odds, for which Not Listenin’tome can be taken at a particularly generous quote of $17 for success.
