The stable has 8 runners today at Ascot.

The former Victorian galloper Bass Strait will lead the way when he runs in the $250,000 Group 2 CB Cox Stakes over 2100 metres. Bass Strait has really enjoyed the move to Perth as evidenced by his performances to date. We bought him with this year’s carnival in mind and he hasn’t let his connections by taking out the Group 3 R.J. Peters Stakes and running sixth in the group 1 Railway Stakes and Group 1 Kingston Town Classic.

Also representing the stable in the CB Cox Stakes is our grand old galloper God Has Spoken – it would be great to see this prize money millionaire run in the money today.

Vital Importance will run in the $100,000 Listed Starstruck Classic over 1600 metres. She gets in on the bottom weight.

Other runners on the day include Fontaine’s War, Kentucky Lass, Star Glitter, crown Lawyer and Right Honourable.

At Narrogin we also have Carabacious and the perennial bridesmaid Street Bandit running – hopefully both can break their maiden status today.

Good luck to connections and successful punting!
