Kris Lees & Greg Ryan The Ones To Follow At Muswellbrook

By Tony Megahey

Big occasion trainer Kris Lees is primed to continue a winning streak, while prolific country jockey Greg Ryan is striving to break a rare winless period at Tuesday’s Muswellbrook TAB meeting that will proceed on a Heavy 8 track.

The stable had a winning double at Wyong last Thursday, with recent wins at Royal Randwick and Quirindi. The stable is riding high on 13 Group successes this season and a 140 race wins, including the latest by Power Command and Rhymes at Wyong.

The provincials are where Lees educates the lesser lights and stable riders Andrew Gibbons and Irish apprentice Louise Day share the Muswellbrook duties. Maiden Numista will contest the third event, TheBrookRacing on Facebook Maiden (1280m), with stablemate Tuscadero scratched.

Maputo Express will start in race 4, the Schmetzer Racing Class 1 Handicap (1280m), with Gosford maiden winner Broodwar running in TheBrookRacing on Twitter Class 1 (1000m) for Louise Day who reduced her allowance with two recent winners for Lees.

Trainers extra keen for the meeting to proceed are Hawkesbury trainer Nick Mitchell and Muswellbrook’s Jan Bowen who have booked Ryan for last start winning 'swimmers'. Mitchell’s Homily led to win a maiden at the track two weeks ago by a widening four lengths on a Heavy 8 and contests the fourth race.

Ryan rode Bowen’s aptly-named Miss Fisher to easily win a maiden on the same day and she is in race 6 (TheBrookRacing on Twitter Class 1, 1000m).

Ryan also rides Pel for Pat Farrell in race 5, and St Luke for Michelle Fleming in the last (race 7). Both have wet track placings and the champion country rider has also picked up the ride on Miss Nellie (race 3).

Ryan has missed the winner’s enclosure at recent Quirindi and Coonamble meetings which is extremely rare, and his followers will be out in force to recoup at Muswellbrook.
