Connie Greig Has Three Live Chances In NSW Picnic Champion Series

By Mark Brassel

SOME RED-HOT FORM HAS SEEN FIVE-YEAR-OLD MARE VALADYIUM POWER TO THE FRONT IN THE 2022 NSW PICNIC CHAMPION SERIES

Dubbo trainer Connie Greig has excellent prospects of taking out the 2022 $50,000 NSW Picnic Champion Series Final later this year with the in-form Valadyium.

With Will Stanley aboard, the mare took out the Bedgerabong Picnic Cup (1400m) before making it two straight by carrying 66kg to claim the Condobolin Picnic Cup (1400m).

Courtesy of those two victories Valadyium has raced to the top of the picnic series point score with 23 points.

She leads fellow Greig-trained galloper Call Me Trinity who is on 21 points, another mare in a purple patch of form having won successive trophy races at Bedgerabong, Condobolin and Tottenham.

And yet a third Connie Greig-stabled performer, Linden Tree, showed he is also in the mix going to 11 points after winning races at Condobolin and Tottenham.

The Sharon Jeffries-trainer Jin Chi Phantom moved up to nine points after he narrowly took out the Tottenham Picnic Cup at the odds of $11.
