Crockett Hopes Recipe Is Right With Baker's Image

By Tony Megahey

Mudgee’s Cameron Crockett, enjoying his most productive season, has four runners at Friday’s Dubbo TAB meeting and is still searching for the key to wayward talent Baker’s Image.

Baker’s Image will be ridden by Greg Ryan in an Aqua West CG&E Class I (1340m), one of numerous chances for the prolific country rider throughout a strong eight-race TAB program. For regional trainers it’s a lead up to the Dubbo City Toyota Gold Cup meeting in September, with capacity fields the order of the day.

“Baker’s Image is the most frustrating horse I’ve ever trained, any amount of ability, but just never wants to be with you at all,” the dual TAB Highway-winning trainer explained.

“He won his maiden by four lengths at Wellington but hasn’t looked like progressing on it since.

“We’ve tried everything, maybe Greg will get the best out of him, and I guess the one positive is that he’s a lightly raced three-year old and still has time.

"If he happens to produce what we know he’s got, he’d win the race easily.”

Crockett is also focusing on an upcoming Canterbury Park meeting with his talented mare Artistic Beauty. He has maiden Auntie Shirl in the second event, veteran Letchworth in the fourth, and Ricci Royal in the seventh race to round out Cameron’s day.

“Letchworth is a 10-year-old but he’s holding enough form to be competitive and Ricci Royal has ability and hasn’t had much luck in recent races, but he’s in the strongest class 2 I’ve ever seen up here.”

Allan Denham’s Cockles to be ridden by Ryan will start favourite. As will stablemate Happy Go Plucky, in the fourth event, the Dubbo Gold Cup prelude. Happy Go Plucky is probably the most promising galloper coming through the meeting and also with the Ryan influence.
