We have two runners in the $400,000 Group 2 WA Derby to be run on Saturday at Ascot. Both horses coming off good runs last start. The Medaglia D’Oro gelding Cappo D’Oro was a game third last start in the Listed Melvista Stakes over 2200 metres. This horse is bred to run 3200 metres, being a half-brother to Group 1 Sydney Cup winner No Win No Song, so he will relish the step up to 2400 metres.
Pushin’ Shapes goes into the race off a good second last start over 1800 metres beaten 0.5 of a length. We have always had the view he could get to this race.
Our other runner on the day is the competitive Danehill Express 4YO North Ridge. He goes around in race 1, a tough 1600 metre bench mark 72 + event.
Good luck to our partners.
