John O’Shea will hope the lightning strikes again when the promising duo of Awesome Wonder and Duke Of Gordon take Wong to Thursday. A pair of three-year-olds with easy races are well acquainted with the Central Coast track after easy victories at the April 28 meeting in conditions similar to those they will face in their respective assignments.
Awesome Wonder is a three-year-old mare bred in the Northern Hemisphere in April, and she hinted that she had beaten her girlfriend in the heavyweight 10 by 1600m, finishing the field with the last in the style we saw in native brother of Harp Marx.
Given this pedigree, she will enjoy a trip to the Coca-Cola Europacific Partners & Arcade Trader Plate (2000 m).
O’Shea has confirmed a record with imported horses with an easy jump, and when it comes to mares and mares, you just need to see what he has achieved with Promise Of Success in the last 12 months. It will be interesting to see if Awesome Wonder will be able to repeat the dose, because if her brother gives any indication, the best is still ahead.
Duke Gordon is six months older, he was bred in the Southern Hemisphere, and the Meranin is watching out for three of the three in Waong in the Daily Press & Carlton & United Breweries Handicap (1600m).
Coach Randwick once again put this three-year-old in great shape after he announced his first win on April 14 and then backed it up two weeks later as a favorite for $ 1.70 and won by four lengths.
The secret revolution, taught by Peter and Paul Snowden, returns in the form of a measure to the Plate of the Bellbirds & Central Coast Volunteer Rescue Association (1100 m). He won as a favorite before the break in the two-year race in Randwick on January 1, which was won by the winner of the “Golden Shoes” Fireburn, and the “Revolutionary Miss” took second place.
