Cold Play Out Of Zabeel Classic

Friday, 23rd December 2016

In form mare Coldplay has been scratched from the Gr1 Zabeel Classic (2000m) at Ellerslie on Boxing Day, reports theinformant.co.nz. Coldplay (Savabeel-Forty Two Below, by O'Reilly), a winner of the Gr2 Cal Isuzu Stakes (1600m) and Gr3 Eagle Technology Stakes (1600m) at her past two outings, will miss the weight-for-age feature after drawing wide in barrier 14. "We just decided against it because of the draw," said Murray Baker, who trains the 4YO in partnership with Andrew Forsman. "It would have been very hard for her from way out there." Baker added: "She'll go to the Rich Hill Mile [Gr2] instead and should be a good chance in that." The Gr2 Rich Hill Mile will be run at Ellerslie on New Year's Day.
