Promising 3yo Magnorum tuned up for Sandown next Wednesday with a strong jump out at Balnarring this week (see below). The son of Magnus finished off strongly for second after jockey Dwayne Dunn gave the gelding an uninterrupted path out wide around the tight picnic track.
Magnorum heads to Sandown next Wednesday to contest the 3yo BM70 over 1000m and a strong showing at metropolitan level will see the sprinter potentially target the Inglis Dash at Flemington ten days later.
'He's freshened up nicely and we gave him a good solid trial at Balnarring on Wednesday. He had a neat blow and will come on nicely for that in preparation for Sandown next week'. Said David Feek.
'If he can be competitive at Sandown then we will give serious consideration towards the Inglis Dash at Flemington on the 20th of January.'
'He (Magnorum) will come on with another run under his belt and that will have him perfect for Flemington. In saying that the 1000m is ideal for him on Wednesday and if we can draw a gate i think he can run well.
Magnorum was an impressive debut winner at his home track at Mornington back in November before a brave second at Werribee in December behind the highly regarded Onehundred Percent, who went on to win at Caulfield at his next start.
Acceptances for Sandown come out on Monday morning, with Dwayne Dunn confirmed to ride after getting a 'nice feel' from Magnorum at Balnarring this week.
