Dad Insists His Son Has The Better Winning Prospect At Moree (Friday)

By Tony Megahey

Home turf at Moree is where Peter Sinclair usually trains up a storm but the celebrated veteran was keen to switch the focus to his son Nathan for Friday’s TAB meeting.

Peter, a former leading regional jockey and three-decade trainer, is typically represented in most of the eight races, doubles and trebles are regular enough but he insists Nathan easily has the best prospects with a select form runner from a small team.

“Nathan’s got a tough staying mare True Bell that’s come up enormous this prep - race fit and really hard to beat,” Peter enthused.

“Nathan took her to a strong form race at Scone in much better grade after she won so well at Gunnedah and Armidale.

“She’s back a bit in distance but she’s weighted and in her right race. I’ve got a good few in - nothing flash that I don’t think will surprise me, most need more racing.

“Nathan’s only got the one, but it’s the form from us on the day.”

The Sinclair’s are pure inspiration. Nathan has suffered from spina bifida since birth; Peter donated a life-saving kidney and calipers are brave Nathan’s constant companions.

Training the odd winner has given him a marvellous purpose and he’s trained his share of winners.

Meanwhile, convincing enough credentials for True Bell, to be ridden on 58kg for Belinda Hodder in a Victoria Hotel Moree BM 1600m, is an on-pace fourth to recent Scone winner - the Messara’s Total Recall.

The tough stayer was previously narrowly beaten at Warwick Farm conceding a plunge winner Ocean Waltzer 7kg. Total Recall then carried 63.5kg and started odds-on winning at Scone.

Friday’s feature, the final event, a Castlereagh& Barwon Heads BM 66, 1300m suggests it will be fought out by accomplished Rod Northam with Philadora and Gavin Groth’s Big Surprise, both last start impressive winners.

Recent Scone and Dubbo wins suggest Philadora is back in grade somewhat at Moree while Big Surprise has been dominant winning in succession at Inverell with a big weight and also at Scone.

Moree will race on a good 4 track in fine weather.
