Oakland Park’s North Ridge will run in the $100,000 Listed Old Comrade Stakes over 1600 metres at Ascot on Saturday. He goes into the race off a last start fourth beaten two lengths in the Listed Grandstand Cup. Drawn well with in-form jockey Shaun O’Donnell on board, he should again be competitive. He has been a good campaigner for our partners having won 7 races and amassed over $400,000 in prize money and bonuses.
The Rogano 3YO gelding In Love With Paris will be out to make it two form two this campaign when he tackles the open 3YO handicap over 1200 metres. He is a progressive type but is up against the unbeaten Pearls and Prawns. He will be given every chance with Paul Harvey on-board.
In the last on the day our 3YO Snitzel filly will will also be out to make it two from two this campaign when she runs in the 62+ all age event over 1200 metres. She too will have the services of Paul Harvey and looks to have a genuine chance in this race.
Good luck to our partners as well of the connections of Taxagano, by Oakland Park’s Rogano, he has been in super form winning his last two starts. Trainer Fred Kersley has him flying and the 4YO gelding looks capable of working his way through the classes.
