Tizso draws barrier 6 in the Bow Mistress Stakes - Vicious to the Valley

Sydney one week, Caulfield the next. Now 6yo mare TIZSO WICKED heads to Tasmania to contest tomorrows Group 3 Bow Mistress Stakes over 1200m. A key riding engagement of John Allen has put a spring in the step of Team Feek and from barrier 6 the recent city winner will be looking to put a few unlucky runs behind her and hopefully secure some black type on her page. 

'She was bought by the owner as a racing and broodmare prospect and now that we've achieved a city win it would be icing on the cake to run top 4 in a Mares Group 3' Said David Feek

'I have also accepted in the Listed 1400m (Open) on Hobart Cup Day on Sunday but at this stage the back-up is only an option should we strike wet ground and providing the mare pulls up 100% from tomorrow'. 

'At this stage the likely option is to stay in Tasmania for a fortnight and target another nice stakes race'. 

'Her Warwick Farm run a few back was arguably her career best, and in a decent form race. If she could reproduce that in the Bow Mistress then I think we are a serious chance of a top 4 finish'. 

'Regardless of the results over the next two weeks, this trip to Tasmania will be her swansong and we will give her plenty of time to let down ahead of what will be a bright future in the breeding barn'. 

Co-trainer Coral Feek has travelled with the mare and reports that she has settled in well and is eating everything since her arrival (pic). After running at Pakenham just seven days ago the team has kept Tizso Wicked fresh for tomorrow's assignment and from the good draw the plan will hopefully see the mare land outside the lead with a comfortable run on speed. Should the pressure relax just enough to give the mare a mid race breather then Feek Racing expect to see Tizso run a highly competitive race.   

Back home and consistent gelding VICIOUS head to the Valley on Saturday, Yarra Valley that is, to contest what looks a highly suitable race over 1000m. The 5yo son of Nicconi will line up in Race 6 at 4:21pm with Jessica Eaton claiming 2kg off the top weight of 60kg and the pair to jump from the ideal barrier in 3. After two solid seconds this time in Vicious headed to the other Valley last start in a race where not a lot went  right for the gelding. 

'His run was better than it looked at Moonee Valley last start. He was never really comfortable in his action yet when he finally balanced up with a 100m to go he really worked to the line. Back in grade on Saturday should see him right in it'. Said an up-beat David Feek from Mornington. 

'He works like a city class horse but he doesn't quite give 100% all of the time on race day. He is better when he's in front controlling things and not having to chase - that's when his mind wanders a  bit'.
