All Eyes On Unraced Lees Duo At Gunnedah Monday

By Tony Megahey

Multiple Group winning trainer Kris Lees is anticipating a productive day, rather than any high expectations, for his lower tiered representatives at Monday’s Gunnedah TAB meeting.

Lees, a dominant leader in the NSW Country Trainer’s premiership, combines with in form stable rider Andrew Gibbons in four races, and reveals his typical reliable guide for his multitude of followers. Particularly on debut runners.

Two unraced Lees maidens will be the focus for punters, starting with Another Sonette in the first race, an MPC Earthmoving Maiden (1000m).

“Shown nice ability in three trials, capable three-year-old, forward and well drawn-it’s a suitable maiden,” Lees offers.

With rival exposed form moderate, Another Sonette will likely start favourite.

Debut stable mate Warsaw Pact, a More Than Ready, Gerry Harvey bred filly, contests a Hopefuel Gunnedah Cup Day Maiden (1400m).

“Slow to mature fill, she's had two trials, resuming and probably looking for more ground, just a place chance as there’s fair exposed form in the race,” he said.

Lees offers a degree of confidence about recent Hawkesbury placegetter Mr Tindall in a Rediguard Lightning Prelude (100m).

“Coming back from Provincial to Country grade, puts him in good stead for a race like this. Well drawn and has made nice progress this prep,” he said.

Mr Tindall closed off solidly when second over 1100m at Hawkesbury three weeks ago after running smart time to win a trial at Wyong. Gibbons is certain to have him on pace from barrier five.

Lees and Gibbons close out a seven race day at the popular north western track with Snitzel mare Unbridled Power, a last start winner at Taree, contesting an Arthur Gore Memorial BM 65 (1400m).

“It’s been a long time between drinks for this mare, but she closed off strong and did a good winning a class two in the heavy at Taree. She can maintain the momentum in better grade,” Lees said.

The Gunnedah track is rated a good four and present in overcast conditions.
