Conservative Gresham Out To Atone

By Ray Hickson Just how forgiving punters will be for Gresham’s last start defeat as a $1.24 favourite remains to be seen. The three-year-old has been testing punters for a while too - he was also beaten as a $3.10 elect at Warwick Farm on October 2 and at $3 on August 9. But the Chris Waller stable is making some changes in an effort to coax a win out of the gelding in the Jamberoo Action Park Plate (1550m) at Canterbury on Friday night. Racing manager Charlie Duckworth said the team, like most punters, expected him to win at Kembla Grange on October 19 where he was run down after hitting the lead at the 400m. “We're going to ride him more conservatively, give him something to chase,’’ he said. Gresham is run down as an odds-on favourite at Kembla Grange “He loomed up like the winner the other day but didn't know how to put them to bed. If he has something to shoot at then he can hopefully get a lovely run in transit and collar them late.’’ Duckworth said with the decision to ride Gresham quieter than last start the blinkers are coming off so he doesn’t over race. “We've always thought he was definitely city class and we would have thought he'd have won by now,’’ he said. “We expect him to go pretty close.’’ Gresham, placed in all five starts this preparation, is the $2.00 favourite for Friday night’s race. Tye’s trial pointers Of the Godolphin horses jockey Tye Angland has ridden in barrier trials in the past month, it’s one he’s not riding at Canterbury on Friday night that he marked as a stand out. Angland partners two-year-old Elessedil (race 1) and three-year-old Tiki Bar (race 3) in their respective returns but will be sitting in the jockey's room when promising colt Revenire resumes. “I would like to (ride him), he was the standout of the morning for myself and that was including Marble who trialled on the same day,’’ Angland said. Because Revenire ($1.75 favourite) has just 53kg in the Harry's Tempe Handicap (1100m) it ruled Angland out of the ride. As far as the two fillies he is riding, Angland rated Elessedil as the best of the Randwick trials from October 17 and will ride Tiki Bar with some confidence after two trial hitouts. “(Elessedil) just seemed very forward, did it all within herself and gave me the feel she was going to improve off it as well,’’ he said. “Similar with Tiki Bar, she gave a good feel and I'm confident going to the races with her.’’ Dinnigan's debut in the Wyong Magic Millions in December Forgotten filly returns A growth spurt kept highly regarded Snitzel filly Dinnigan out of the autumn and she’s one of the more interesting runners at Canterbury. The $400,000 filly started a $3.70 chance at her only appearance and finished a half length third behind Madeenaty and Single Bullet in the Wyong Magic Millions back on December 22. Since then she’s trialled twice in May before resurfacing again with a trial win on October 17 and co-trainer Adrian Bott said she’s just needed time. “We thought a lot of her going into the race and since then the form has been well and truly franked on a number of occasions,’’ he said. “She's taken a while to mature since that run. “She's stepping back in grade and is well placed, she's a nice filly going forward. I'm sure there's a lot more to come from her.’’ Dinnigan ($2.50) takes on Tiki Bar ($2.30) in the Pegasus Supply Solutions Handicap (1100m).
