Big Plans In Store For Waking Moment (Kembla Tues)

John Thompson is eyeing a shot at next month's Arrowfield Kembla Grange Classic as Waking Moment looks to break her maiden at the South Coast track on Tuesday.

The Authorized filly has only had the two starts but the step up to 1400m in the Shell Cove Tavern Maiden Handicap on Tuesday but it is only a building block of her preparation.

“I think she is pretty smart and we are going to see the best of her as she gets up in trip,” Thompson said. “Hopefully she will run well on Tuesday and get the job done in a maiden but the reason I’m taking her down there is have a look at the track before the Classic.

“I think she is up to that quality, especially at a mile and above. The big track is going to suit her and hopefully there will be a bit more speed on in this race than last time.”

Waking Moment was runner-up on debut at Hawkesbury in October before being spelled and given time to develop. She had a couple of barrier trials before running on hard into fifth at Randwick over 1200m on February 15 behind I Thought So in a very slowly run race.

It was a race dominated by the leaders with the first three to the turn filling the trifecta. It is also the form race for Tuesday’s maiden with Bye See running second at Randwick, History Repeats fourth, Mull Over sixth and Sceamarr seventh.

“She just need time in the spring but showed she had a bit of talent,” Thompson said. “The other day there was no way she could win from where she was in the run. She got back to last and came the widest and it was a great effort. The extra trip in her favour and I think she will be better again when they get up to staying trips.”

Thompson also has Blanco Cara in the maiden , which is on a similar path after only beating one home in the Randwick race: “She is another staying filly and you just have to be patience with them,” Thompson said.
