It's A Dundeel Impresses At Valley
Meanwhile, new Cox Plate favourite It's A Dundeel (High Chaparral-Stareel, by Zabeel) galloped strongly during 'Breakfast with the Stars' at Moonee Valley yesterday morning, reports NZ Racing Desk. Regular rider James McDonald put the 4YO son of High Chaparral through his paces in his final hit-out before Saturday's race and was delighted with his work. "He really felt brilliant. Murray (trainer Murray Baker) has got him spot on, he doesn't take a lot of racing," he said. "He looks fantastic, he's dappled up. He looks amazing and he wasn't like that before he beat Atlantic Jewel and he's really come on. He's fit and healthy and ready to go."
