Stable tries its luck in the Goldfields

The Peacock Stable heads to Ballarat on Thursday night and Bendigo the following night, with two strong each-way chances.

Last-start Mildura winner Mulgrave should certainly make his presence felt at Ballarat in Race One, from the favorable number two alley.

The gelding is competing in a claiming race, restricted to those horses with assessments of CO to C4 only.  

As a C3, Mulgrave is drawn well, courtesy of his $3000 claiming tag in the  preferential barrier draw on claiming price race conditions.

On paper, the Grant Campbell-trained One Tough Reign looks the hardest to beat, having been runner up in four of his past five starts.

Barimah heads to Bendigo

Stable pin-up boy Barimah will compete in the fast-class event for C7 or better horses at Bendigo on Friday night.

All going well, Barimah is certainly going to be one of the major players at Bendigo, especially with his number four barrier draw.  

The hardest for him to beat is the Kerryn Manning-trained Giuliani, who ran an eye-catching second last start at Melton behind the brilliant Yankee Rockstar.

Fingers crossed Barimah can do the job and Tony can head back to his old stomping ground Kilmore for the $70,000 Kilmore Cup on Saturday week.
