|Horse||(13) ROLLING SASSO|
|RACE||(7) WESTSPEED NOMINATIONS CLOSING JULY 17 HANDICAP (1400m)|
Eric reckons …
Rolling Sasso has done a reasonable job in his first racing preparation and he will head to the spelling paddock win, lose or draw at Belmont this afternoon.
We are going to try and learn a few more things about him before he goes for a spell, by stepping him up to the 1400-metre distance and by attempting to ride and ride him a bit more patiently to get him to finish off his race.
Jockey Shaun Meeres faces a tough task getting him into a decent position jumping from barrier 13, but if Rolling Sasso can get some cover in running then we do expect him to race competitively against this line up. If he can finish midfield or better then we would be very pleased.
