Veteran hoop Jim Byrne will chase a fourth...
Head trainer David Hayes has nominated the two year old Good ‘N’ Fast as Lindsay Park’s best chance on a massive nine race program on Finals Day at Flemington on Saturday.
The Lindsay Park Team of David and Ben Hayes and Tom Dabernig will saddle up eleven runners at Flemington and Hayes has isolated Good ‘N’ Fast in the Listed $120,000 Taj Rossi Series Final (1600m) as the one that he will be backing.
“We have got multiple chances. Good ‘N’ Fast is probably the one I’ll be backing,” David Hayes said.
“I think he will get the run of the race and be very hard to beat.”
Good ‘N’ Fast has been to the races on two occasions for a first up second over 1100m down the Flemington straight and then found the winner’s stall over 1400m at Flemington again at his next start.
The two year old Sebring colt has drawn barrier three with Luke Nolen in the saddle and has been installed as the $3.20 favourite for the Taj Rossi Series Final at Ladbrokes.com.au.
The Lindsay Park Team will also lead in Pedicel ($6) for Damien Oliver and Nero Chin Chin ($34) in the Taj Rossi Series Final for the two year olds.
Hayes has a high opinion of Pedicel but admits that her chances have been shot down after drawing the outside barrier in the twelve horse field.
“I would have really fancied this filly but she will need a very good ride from Ollie but she is a great chance to pick up the black type and she is a valuable Redoute’s Choice filly,” Hayes said.
“She has come back from Sydney and has seemed to have thrive back at Lindsay Park.”
Pedicel kicked off her racing career in Sydney with a win at Canterbury over 1100m before running fourth in a 1400m two year old Handicap at Rosehill on June 16.
Nero Chin Chin is yet to win from five race starts and Hayes said that the Pierro youngster will take a lot of benefit from his run over the 1600m in the Taj Rossi Series Final and expects him to excel as he steps up in distance at his next start.
“He ran a poor race last start but I don’t think the conditions of the track suited him,” Hayes said.
“Look for him running on and he has been set for an 1800m in a couple of weeks. He is a promising young stayer.”
The Lindsay Park Team’s other runners are Miss Gunpowder, Miles Of Krishan and Red Is The Rose (Race 3), Woulda Thought So (Race 4), Dane Hussler (Race 6) and Jacquinot Bay, Cool Chap and Mihany (Race 8).
