Noticed this galloper has been transferred from Waller to a new/rookie trainer Annabelle Neasham, is owned by Aquis and have just read an article from last spring where it states "we will be supporting her heavily" as she kicks off her own training gig..no ****! has i dare say been given some fairly good gallopers to kick off with in this bloke and Prague is another i noted and who resumed with a nice close up 3rd last Saturday.

Annabelle whose name i have seen around but know not much about is from the UK i believe.Bit of digging tells me she worked for Gai in 2016 on a working holiday and never left, subsequntly ran The Maher/Eustace's Sydney operation from 2018 and with considerable success too until kicking off in her own right in August last year, so far has had 13 winners from 61 runners at 21%.

Mo'unga is dual nominated for Sydney and Melbourne this saturday last time i looked and is great odds particularly for the flemington race which i think he could win first up, do not know if he is there or in Sydney though.
Has accepted for The Apollo in Sydney also a notably bigger test but the wraps were big for him too.Interesting to watch how he goes...and Annabelle too
She has started well and i think she is VERY highly rated.Smart move would be to "sign up" Tommy Marquand for rides wherever possible(he lobs there this week i believe and will be ready too ride on the 27th Feb),i could see them forging an alliance of sorts for his time here and he used to ride Prague and maybe others for Aquis anyway.

    yes i was going to mention that yesty lol nice looking woman indeed.

    The horse is running in Melbourne their setting him for the Guineas($21 atm), is i think a very good chance tomorrow and at around $13 is well worth a bet.
    I like Dom To Shoot who is over there but he is the same price that just isn't right.

    Very nice third today, i think he can beat both those that finished in front of him over a mile.Will run a big race regardless.

    Bypassing Melbourne maybe due to the harder tracks but just a guess.Nommed for the Randwick Guineas getting the extra week break then on to the Rosehill Guineas 2000m all being equal he could smash them.

    Anabel said it was mainly because the horse has never run on only a 2 week break and as she got him back to Sydney straight after the C S Hayes (in case covid interfered with her ability to go to Melbourne) it would have meant not only a 2 week gap but also another Sydney Melbourne trip.

    Thanks Tony, I had a quick look for any info but sometimes it's hard to find.Makes good sense as he is a colt who will appreciate further than 1600 too.
    I really like this horse and he has heavy form so look out I reckon.
