Trust In A Gust Saved For Brisbane
Trainer Darren Weir says there is nothing amiss with Trust In A Gust (Keep the Faith-Subtle Breeze, by Storm Cat) who was nominated for tonight's Gr1 William Reid Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley but didn't accept, reports racing.com. "There's nothing wrong with him, he's beautifully sound," Weir said. "The plan was to run him in the William Reid but he just missed a couple of pieces of work so we've decided to wait as you need to be really fit to resume in a race as strong as that. We'll probably start him off in something easier than the top level and then head to Brisbane." Weir said Trust In A Gust - a dual Gr1 winner of the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes and Toorak Handicap in the spring - may resume on Saturday week in the Listed Manihi Classic (1100m) in Adelaide before heading to Brisbane for three Gr1 races at Doomben, namely the BTC Cup (1200m), Doomben 10,000 (1350m) and Stradbroke Handicap (1350m).
