Dal Cielo To The Double

By Brad Gray

Dal Cielo was a problem child as a colt but now that he has been gelded, he has strung two wins together and won both of them comfortably.

After charging home to take out the Summer Sprint at Warwick Farm, Kris Lees kept Dal Cielo nice and fresh ahead of his Randwick assignment.

Dal Cielo does it again!

“He didn’t have a great run in transit but I thought Glyn handled him really well. He presented him at the right time and he let down nicely,” said Lees.

“He’s got to step up from here to start thinking about better races. It’s still summer form. We’ll step him up in trip now to 1100m in a couple of weeks and that will give us a guide as to where we head.

“We were quite lucky to get the horse. He had really good form as a spring three-year-old and although he lost his way as some colts do, but he’s gelded now and the new owners in him will have fun.”

Glyn Schofield is renowned for getting hard-pulling horses to settle and Schofield’s soft hands have had plenty to do with getting this horse back in winning form.

“He’s a horse that is just learning to get his confidence,” said Schofield.

“I could have just yanked him back and followed a bum but he was travelling so sweetly for me I just didn’t want to pull him around. He was happy in his rhythm and he won effortlessly again.

“I said last time that he’s got better races in front of him and today was another step up. It was a well performed field and he has beaten them with a bit of contempt.”
