Bollywood Blitz to back up strong win
Local trainer Craig Wright is confident that Bollywood Blitz will prove hard to beat in the Goldfields Electrical Contractors Handicap tomorrow.
The five year old has been ultra-consistent on Goldfields since arriving in July, winning twice and placing on three occasions from six starts at the circuit.
Bollywood Blitz’s most impressive performance came at his most recent start when annihilating his rivals, winning by five and a half lengths over the mile.
The gelding will go over the mile once again tomorrow at the KBRC’s last meeting for the season, with Chanelle O’Grady to partner the son of Natural Blitz.
"He's pulled up really well, I can't fault him" Wright said
"It's a very similar field on paper except for Kalavedo and Futurism which will add some strength into the race"
The galloper will have to carry an additional three kilograms for his assignment tomorrow, with the handicapper penalising him four rating points as opposed to three after his impressive win last start.
Wright is not overly concerned with the weight his galloper will have to carry citing the small spread in the weights.
"There's only a four kilogram spread in the weights with not too many claiming"
"He's drawn barrier two, I'm a little worried about getting jammed on the fence, he needs room to go through his gears"
Kalavedo looks the hardest to beat on paper coming off successive wins on Coolgardie Cup day and the Hannans Handicap meeting last Thursday.
Wright will look to target Esperance with some of his gallopers with tomorrow marking the end of racing in Kalgoorlie-Boulder for 2016.
"I'm going to stay here training at the club, I've enjoyed my year here at Kalgoorlie, the people and the club are fantastic which has persuaded me to stay"
"I think a horse like Tinker Tailor can go through his classes down there"
Local trainers Peter Fernie and Brett Mathews are likely to target the Esperance season coming off a successful 2015-16 season at the Bay of Isles.
The Esperance Turf Club will begin their season in eight weeks’ time on November 26 and race through the new year to March.
