Veranillo Up To Challenge

Thursday, 16th February 2017

Godolphin trainer John O'Shea is under no illusions as to the task that will confront Veranillo in Saturday's Gr2 Silver Slipper Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill where he'll meet boom juveniles She Will Reign and Khan, reports Racing NSW. With James Doyle sidelined with a fractured hand, Brenton Avdulla will take the ride on the unbeaten Medaglia d'Oro colt. "He's up in class, so we'll know where we stand with him after Saturday," said O'Shea. "There's a couple of smart ones in the race, but at this stage we'll be going on to the Golden Slipper." He added: "He's a very nice colt who had shown ability in his first prep and raced up to it with a good, tough win (first-up)."
