Sep 08, 2017

The stable heads to Griffith on Saturday, September 9 with a six event card to be run with Craig Widdison supplying Steve's Choice and Cochranes Gap to the meeting racing on a good (4).

Race three will see the Terra Ag BM 56 handicap over a thousand metres with Steve's Choice to be joined by Chelsea McFarlane jumping from barrier (8).

Steve's Choice was last seen competing at Leeton over 1050m when arriving fifth of eight after over racing badly behind the leader, before making a move back to the inside the last 200m only battling to the line under Carly Frater Hill, arriving 1.89 lengths behind Delivered on that occasion.

Her only wins have been on a good surface and she has won and placed numerous times at the trip.

Race 4 will see the Yenda Prods Co Op "Your Partners In Farming" class one handicap over 1350m with Cochranes Gap to jump from barrier (4) with Brian Murphy aboard with a field of 12 to run.

Cochranes Gap got back to the winners circle last time out with Brian Murphy landing 0.87 lengths in advance of Carlistos in a time of 1:25.10.

An improver last time out at Berrigan when back to a good surface, he's drawn to get some favour's and a strong performance would not surprise here.

Good luck to all connected on Saturday.
