Wet Trackers Are The Key For Lismore (Tuesday)

By Tony Megahey

High profile border-hopping raiders are primed to dominate Lismore’s Tuesday TAB meeting where heavy track form is the prerequisite.

The dominant Gold Coast stables of Aquis Farm’s New Zealand trainer Kacy Fogden have emerging talents throughout the eight-race program already assessed a heavy nine after constant downpours.

Fogden has lightly raced prospects and explains what is confronting trainers in the region.

“It’s been really difficult with the amount of rain to get sufficient work into them and just as our tracks were starting to recover, more downpours put us back to square one,” explains Kacy who rides regular trackwork.

“But fortunately we were able to work our Lismore runners on Saturday morning, so that’s a positive and our best for the day is Beckford off a dominant Beaudesert maiden win.

“We think he can keep improving and get through his grades but it is still early days.”

The expensive Not a Single Doubt three-year-old gelding contests the Class 2, 1526m Clydesdale Motel race carrying 55.5kg for Andrew Mallyon after winning by a widening three lengths.

While Beckford ($1.90 favourite on TAB) is untried in heavy conditions, his breeding and the strength of his last start win over further is encouraging.

And he was close up previously in stronger maidens at Doomben and the Gold Coast. James Orman rode him to win last start but Mallyon takes over on Tuesday and rode the gelding for a Gold Coast placing.

Lady Snitch ($7.50), a former Victorian contests a fifth race maiden.

“She was with Shane Nicholls only had the one run down there, she’s resuming for us off a couple of trials but early days, it’s wait and see with her.”

Likewise, Vahlia ($51), a Duporth four-year-old mare has gained a start as an emergency for a last race maiden.

“She’s had the two trials resuming, been a bit difficult to train we’ve tried a few different things with her, hopefully, she’ll improve with experience.”

At present, the track is a heavy nine.
