Freedman Bullish On Disposition's Prospects
Trainer Lee Freedman is quietly confident that talented West Australian galloper Disposition will make his presence felt in Saturday's Gr1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield. It will be the second time the 4YO has competed at the elite level, after finishing runner-up to Moriarty in the Gr1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) at Ascot in December. A homebred for prominent WA owner and breeder Bob Peters, Disposition (Reset-Test Case, by Testa Rossa) resumed with an impressive victory in the Listed The Sofitel (1400m) at Flemington twelve days ago and Freedman says he has derived plenty of natural improvement from the run. "We're happy with him. He was always going to make improvement off that run because he hadn't raced since March," Freedman told Melbourne's Radio Sport National yesterday. "It's a step up on Saturday into Group One company but as I've said quite often he's an untapped horse. His form is rock solid and it would appear that he is very suited to that race." He added: "There's no doubt he can win. We are not underestimating the challenge, but I think progressive 4YOs are well suited in this race and he is one of them." Disposition has drawn perfectly in barrier three and will be partnered by Damien Oliver. Click here to view Caulfield fields for Saturday.
