Look Out, He Is Comin’ Through

By Brad Gray At Royal Randwick

Comin’ Through is a completely different animal to the one we saw over the autumn according to Michael Walker who made the trip up from Melbourne to maintain his association with the Fastnet Rock colt.

A very lively Comin’ Through looked to have matured into an outstanding looking late three-year-old when parading before his heat, with his effort overshadowed by the appearance of his champion stablemate Winx.

“He trailed really well and is a different horse to last preparation. He seems more focused and was really fresh this morning. I sat outside the leader (Diamond Tathagata) and was swinging off him trying to slow him down because it was his first trial,” Walker said.

“To the eye he looks stronger but being on him and feeling how strong he was… it was overwhelming how much he has improved.

“I’m looking forward to this preparation. He needed to find length of two to catch up to the other three year olds but in saying that, he is not a wet tracking and still ran a Group One placing.

“If he has caught up those couple of lengths he is going to be a horse to be reckoned with.”

Comin' Through trialling at Randwick - July 24

Comin’ Through will trial again at Royal Randwick on August 8 before a campaign will be mapped out with the $175,000 Group Two Tramway Handicap (September 2) and $200,000 Group Two Theo Marks Stakes (September 9) potential starting points while the $1,000,000 Group One Epsom Handicap is firmly on the radar as a spring target for the Criterion relation.

“I’m very thankful that Sir Owen (Glenn) has got me as his rider and I get to sit on them all,” Walker concluded.
