Foot To The Floor For Redzel

By Brad Gray

Perhaps connections of Redzel should consider renaming their prized sprinter ‘redline’ as he only knows one way and that isn’t about to change ahead of the Group Three TAB Hall Mark Stakes (1200m) at Randwick.

“You can only ride him one way. He’ll be out in front and highballing it,” said co-trainer Paul Snowden.

“Kerrin (McEvoy) knows him very well and the mid-section is vital to him sustaining it. He can get 1200m but he is going to be stepping a bit short late if he has had to do a bit mid-race. It’s like Kryptonite the last 50m, I’ll say that about him.

“He needs a breather at some stage. I don’t think there is a lot of pressure there and I think he can get that. If any the other horse wants to take him on he is the one that can shake them off and they are only ruining their own chances.”

The four-year-old speedster has returned in career best form this campaign boasting two narrow seconds. Firstly by a nostril in the Group Two Challenge Stakes behind English before being gunned down late in the Group One Galaxy by classy stablemate Russian Revolution.

Redzel looked the winner of the Galaxy

“It’s a lovely race for him on Saturday. He is no worries on a wet track and he is in good spot at the moment. He has held his condition well and is certainly working like a winner,” Snowden said.
