The Autumn Sun Shines Brightly At Randwick

By Mark Brassel

Bigger goals are in store for outstanding talent The Autumn Sun after he maintained his unbeaten record in the Energy Air Handicap (1400m) at Royal Randwick today.

The $2 favourite shrugged off a determined challenge from third placegetter Whiteley (Lee Magorrian, $7) to win by a length with Royal Celebration (Andrew Adkins, $9.50) finishing strongly to grab second, a long neck in advance of Whiteley.

Winning jockey Brenton Avdulla was full of praise for The Autumn Sun, saying the colt has untapped ability.

"He's pretty smart and I think in around 12 months time you'll see a very good horse.

"Races like the Randwick and Rosehill Guineas will be his go."

Chris Waller's stable foreman, Charlie Duckworth, said: "We thought there'd be a more genuine tempo but Brenton was aware of what was happening and he popped him out three-deep.

"The horse is still working it out. We're delighted with the performance and he will certainly now come on from the run."

Early leader Mickey Blue Eyes (Andrew Mallyon, $9.50) tired noticeably from the 250m and beat just one runner to the post.
