Bateup Gives Lead On Arrows Destiny

Theresa Bateup had Arrows Destiny ready to run 2000m last week, so she is confident he can lead all-the-way in the Illawarra Toyota Fleet Specialists Handicap at Kembla Grange on Saturday.

After missing a run when Kembla was called off last week, the seven-year-old has been dropped back to 1600m.

“He loves this sort of going and is very fit,” Bateup said. “I think the 1600m is really going to suit him and we will be trying to lead all the way.

“His win at Moruya was very strong and he is in the best form of his career. He will just get out and try to control the race.”

Bateup said Kembla track manager Dave Anderson had done an incredible job to get the meeting to go ahead after a week of rain. The track will be rated a heavy 9.

“We were off last week when I thought we would race. So when you saw the amount of rain we had this week, I was expecting the worst,” Bateup said. “Dave and his team have done well to have us racing, even on a heavy track.”

Bateup also Lacasa Maria Rosa in the final event, The Disability Plate, and despite drawing wide she thinks the five-year-old could measure up in a strong maiden.

“I was really confident she could win her last start when she ran second in a small field at Kembla. I think she is pretty close to breaking through,” Bateup said.

“She has drawn wide [in gate 15] but by the end of the day I don’t think that will be a disadvantage.

“This race does look a little harder than the last one but she is very consistent. She is honest and is an each way hope.”
