L’ORMARINS QUEEN’S PLATE (Grade 1)
Kenilworth, Turf, 1600m
7 January 2012
Trainer Vaughan Marshall runs his five-year-old Kahal gelding Tales Of Bravery in the weight for age Grade 1 L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate over 1600m at Kenilworth on Saturday and will be hoping to go one better than last year when finishing a 2,25 length second to Mike de Kock-trained Mother Russia.
Marshall said, “He is very well and has done everything we wanted him to do.”
Tales Of Bravery has had a fine season to date having won a Pinnacle Stakes event over 1500m at Kenilworth on his reappearance, then finishing a 0,5 length second to Bravura in the weight for age Grade 2 Green Point Stakes over 1600m on the Kenilworth Old Course and then winning the Jet Master Stakes over Saturday’s course and distance on December 17.
He has had one extra prep run than last year, but Marshall doesn’t believe this will make any difference to his chances. He reckons the better draw of seven compared to eight last year will help. Marshall makes Bravura and Variety Club, both from the Joey Ramsden yard, the horses to beat.
