Sofitel First-Up For Disposition
Champion jockey Damien Oliver has been booked to ride talented Perth 4YO Disposition in the Listed The Sofitel (1400m) at Flemington on Saturday week. The Gr1 performed son of Reset has not raced since finishing 4th behind Watermans Bay in the Gr3 MRC Victoria Handicap in April. "He's had a few little things go wrong, like having mucus in his nostrils which has interrupted his preparation," owner Bob Peters said. "He seems to be a horse that has these issues as we had him ready for the Australian Guineas and he fell over in the stable last preparation." He added: "The reports are he is going along well and he should not be handicapped too harshly in The Sofitel."
