Distance The Key For Have A Nip At Kembla

Rosehill trainer Richard Freedman is looking to open options for Have A Nip by stretching him out to a mile in the Bald Hill Class 1 Handicap at Kembla Grange on Sunday.

Freedman has enlisted his gun trackwork rider Shaun Guymer to get the job done as he continues return to the raceday saddle.

“Shaun knows him very well and if he get him to relax I think he will be running on,” Freedman said. “Shaun is very reliable and is one of the best trackwork riders I have had. He is a great judge of speed and that will flow through to raceday.

“He knows that he has to ride them well to stay on them, so he has to make the most of the opportunities I can give him.”  

Have A Nip is lightly raced six-year-old and as a big horse if he can settle he could develop into a fair miler.

“I said to the owners that it might win a race or two at 1200m but if we can get it to a mile there are a lot more opportunities for him,” Freedman said.

“We have trained him to get him out in trip this time in and he gets to 1500m on Sunday.”

Guymer has been on Have A Nip at both his start for Freedman running into third on his return at Kembla before leading and dropping out to run fifth at Hawkesbury.

“It is just a matter of him settling and relaxing if he does that he will run well. He over-raced a little bit at Hawkesbury the other day, so we didn’t get to see if he can run a trip,” Freedman said.
