Overmeire On Comeback Trail At Cessnock (Tuesday)

Former South African apprentice Jean Van Overmeire can make a successful return from injury when he heads to Cessnock on Tuesday.

Overmeire, apprenticed to Sydney trainer Bjorn Baker, resumed riding at Bathurst on Monday after being out of the saddle since November 1 due to a fall at Kembla Grange.

He has three rides at Cessnock – Dhamba (race five) and Doosey (race six) for Warwick Farm trainer Rick Worthington and Kamehameha (race seven) for Wyong trainer Brett Partelle.

Kamehameha certainly has the score on the board in terms of track and distance statistics going in to the Newcastle And Hunter Racing Hall Of Fame Benchmark 55 Hcp (1150m).

The six-year-old has had five runs over the trip at Cessnock for three wins and a third and looks a great chance to improve on that record with the aid of Overmeire’s 3kg allowance on Tuesday.

One of the biggest threats to Kamehameha looks to be the Garry Neale-trained Tycoon Mar who won his Maiden in good fashion at his most recent appearance at Cessnock on 29 January. Tycoon Mar was resuming when he won the 900m dash in a slick 49.90.

Overmeire’s mount Doosey also looks hard to beat in the Vintage Cessnock Motor Inn Class 2 Hcp (1570m) after an encouraging first-up run at Bathurst on 27 January.

Resuming from a 14-month break, Doosey made good ground in the straight to finish a length second to Nictock in a Class 2 Hcp over 1200m.

The rail for Tuesday’s seven-race meeting will be in its true position and the track is currently rated a good 3.
