Bowen's Hill Hits The Highway In Peak Form

Peak Hill deserves a crack at Highway Handicap in Sydney, his Lismore trainer believes, and the four-year-old gelding son of Rip Van Winkle made a late night float trip to Randwick on Thursday to have his chance.

Daniel Bowen trains Peak Hill at Lismore and is hoping the gelding can notch a fourth career win at his 17th start in Saturday's $75,000 Highway Handicap (1800m) at Randwick.

Peak Hill won at Toowoomba last start after finishing fourth in the recent Lismore Cup.

“He deserves a crack at it,” Daniel Bowen said from George Street in Sydney.

“We came down Thursday night, left about 8.30pm and got here about 5.30am.

“He travelled well and looks good in the coat, looks happy.

“He’s drawn well (1), we just hope it doesn’t get too wet for him. He’s better on a better surface.

"He’s come a long way though this preparation. He’s been going real good, just kept improving. His run in the Cup (Lismore) was full of merit. The riderless horse got in his way and he had to come down the outside when the race was all over.”

Peak Hill has won at the Gold Coast, Grafton and Toowoomba and won over the 1800m distance as well.

He has drawn nicely with Matt McGuren to ride and Bowen hopes his Highway experience might be another step up for the lightly raced gelding.

“Hopefully he can make it into the Saturday Brisbane grade,” he said.

Meanwhile, Northern Rivers Racing Association racing returns at Ballina on Monday week when the Ballina Jockey Club stages a seven-race TAB meeting.

Murwillumbah’s Tweed River Jockey Club then runs a five-race Melbourne Cup day meeting on Tuesday, November 6, the same day as Coffs Harbour stage a five-race meeting as well.

Grafton then race the next day (Wednesday November 7) with an eight-race TAB meeting before Tabulam races its five-race Tabulam Cup day on Saturday, November 10.
