Drop In Grade Should Ensure Mare Sails Home At Kembla

Gwenda Markwell had enough of opinion of Alert By Sea to run her in a Provincial Championships qualifier and believes back to her right grade she is ready to win the BLG Business Advisers Handicap at Kembla Grange on Saturday.

The Alert mare was still kicking at 200m mark after sitting wide near the lead in the Kembla Provincial heat run at Goulburn on a very heavy track.

“She is probably in the best form of her career,” Markwell said. “I have been really happy with her this preparation and that’s why we gave her a chance in the Provincial Championships.

“She ran well but those horses were just a bit too good for her. It turned out to be the strongest of the series. She drops a fair bit in grade here and still gets in with a nice weight.

“I think the 1300m on Saturday is probably a better trip for her than 1400 and she is ready to run a great race.”

Markwell will also saddle Bolord and Captain Mannung in the race as they resume from spell.

“They might both need the run,” she said,.”Bolord is a nice horse on his day but will improve from this run.

 “Captain Mannering is a stayer, who will need a couple of runs and a bit more distance to be at his best.”

Earlier in the day He’s Blessed and Hollymount Star make their debuts for Markwell in the Lone Pine three-year-old Maiden.

Markwell leads the Kembla Grange trainers premiership with seven wins for the season and is third on the overall premiership behind the powerhouse Sydney stables of Chris Waller and John O’Shea.
