Beadman Fancies Woodlands Youngsters

By Brad Gray

Two very smart fillies will line up for Godolphin in the Listed Woodlands Stakes (1100m) at Scone on Saturday.

Almanzora burst onto the scene with a brilliant Warwick Farm win before being sent around one of the favourites in the Group Two Percy Sykes Stakes over The Championships where nothing went to plan.

"She’s trialled very well since her last run when she raced upside down and went too hard," said Darren Beadman.

"Her racing manners were first class in the barrier trial which was a very strong trial. The horse who ran third in it (Taking Aim) won the Ken Russell last Saturday.”

Another daughter of Lonhro in Epidemic will also take her place after a luckless debut in an early two-year-old race, the Pierro Plate, back in October.

“She looks magnificent. I really like this filly. She’s got a bit of brilliance about her,” Beadman said.

“At her only start she was desperately unlucky. She’s spelled well since then, has good ability and has trialled well.”

Meanwhile, Kinshachi will represent Godolphin in the Group Three Dark Jewel Classic (1400m) after a very encouraging return at Hawkesbury behind Shillelagh and Daysee Doom.

“She ran very well last start after drawing off the track and being wide throughout and still loomed up to win. She’ll have taken great benefit from the run and her work has been first class since.”

“She’s certainly got the ability to win this type of race.”

Kinshachi's Hawkesbury third first-up

Old North and Grunderzeit also produced eye-catching returns at Hawkesbury, in the Gold Rush, and will meet again second-up in the Listed Luskin Park Stakes (1300m).

“(Old North) was back in at 1100 last start and gets up to the right trip and the big track will certainly suit him. Since his last run he’s taken big forward steps.”

“Grunderzeit was a bit unlucky the other day. With the right run in the race and stepping up to 1300 he should be suited.

“All his wins have been at Canterbury, but if he repeats his last-start performance he’ll give it shake.”

Old North and Grunderzeit bumped into each other first-up too
