Nestor Continues Breakout Year At Dubbo (Sunday)

By Tony Megahey

The portents and wet track credentials, along with the clout of champion Greg Ryan, are all in Kody Nestor’s favour at Dubbo’s TAB meeting on Sunday.

And Nestor, with several home track favourites in the heavy, can follow up the confidence surrounding his rising talent Jailbreak in Saturday’s TAB Highway at Kensington.

“Like to think it could be a nice couple of days - my best at home are What the Fuss and One Pound and Jailbreak off his previous run and the good draw.” Kody enthused.

“Toro Toro is without doubt the horse to beat (at Randwick), but we should sit closer this time and maybe stronger at 1400m. But this horse is a talent.”

Nestor, amidst his most successful training season with 30 winners so far, and an imposing 21 per cent winning strike rate is represented throughout Dubbo’s capacity nine-race TAB programme.

Ryan is set for a booming day.

Aside from riding Kody’s prime selection in What the Fuss, the long-time regional champion is on strongly credentialed runners in his productive association with young trainer Clint Lundholm. They rarely miss at home.

From a big representation, and singling out What the Fuss and One Pound, Nestor offers a valuable insight for punters.

“We’ve had the rain, we’re a heavy eight; you need horses who can get through it,'' he said.

“What the Fuss and One Pound both won on a heavy eight at Wellington a few weeks back. What the Fuss was a real big win.

"He’s up in weight but back in grade from a fairly strong Highway and Greg won on him at Wellington - he’s always a bonus.”

What the Fuss, a short course specialist, has 60kg but drawn inside contesting the sixth event over 1000m.

And importantly in the heavy going will be fitter for recent racing from a spell.

One Pound has a wide draw for Jay Ford to contend with in the previous race.

“Need some luck from out there but this filly going terrific, in a race to suit and we know she’ll handle the going.”

At present Dubbo is a heavy eight in overcast weather.
