Dal Cielo To Resume Tomorrow

Friday, 11th September 2015

Meanwhile, closer to home, trainers Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman will also launch the spring campaign of last season's Gr1 Diamond Stakes winner Dal Cielo when he lines up in the Listed Tavistock Northland Breeders Stakes (1200m) at Ruakaka. "We've got to make a start with him. He's drawn eight of nine but I'm hoping some of those horses drawn inside him won't muster as much speed as him early," Baker told NZ Racing Desk. Dal Cielo (Per Incanto-Cent From Heaven, by Centaine) has trialled twice in preparation for his spring campaign that could yet see him race in Australia. "We were initially a bit disappointed with his trial at Taupo but there were a few factors against him and he's improved in his work at home. We expect a good run this weekend. If he gets the right run, he's right up to the class." He added: "We'll get this run out of the way before we make any plans with him."
