Triple Threat For Tactical Advantage

By Brad Gray

Boom youngster Tactical Advantage brought up three straight wins at Randwick on Saturday and made it an early double for James Cummings having also taken out the two-year-old race with Exceeds.

“He has got a really brilliant turn of foot. When I thought about running in this race my jockey (Glyn Schofield) was very doubtful and my foreman Nacim Dilm had to remind him to 'leave the training to James and you just ride’ and he rode him very well,” Cummings said.

“That was a really good field. Glyn and I have had a lot of time for the horse all preparation. His win first-up at Canterbury was electrifying, showing a brilliant turn of foot and he improved again at six furlongs. Brought back in distance with a good gap between runs, Glyn just had to angle out to the right spot and he rode the race perfectly.

“I have a plan to freshen him up for a race like the Maurice McCarten (March 11) but I’ve got plenty of time. If I can get him there and he goes really well I can keep raising the bar.”

Tactical Advantage makes it a hattrick

Schofield confirmed the stable’s opinion of the three-year-old son of Bel Esprit but was adamant that he still had plenty to learn.

“He just keeps putting performances together and winning so while he keeps doing a few things wrong and winning, there is a lot to like about him,” Schofield said.

“James might the right call, he had him in last night (at Canterbury) and picked a Saturday race for him and reaped the rewards.”
