Big Improvement From Impending

Friday, 3rd March 2017

Meanwhile, the royal blue of Godolphin will also be carried by 3YO Impending (Lonhro-Mnemosyne, by Encosta de Lago) in tomorrow's Gr1 Canterbury Stakes (1300m) at Randwick, reports racingnsw.com.au. Trainer John O'Shea is confident that the Gr1 Golden Rose placegetter can bounce back after a disappointing first-up showing in the Gr3 Southern Cross Stakes (1200m) at the same track. "There were plenty of excuses for him. I thought he was on the worst part of the ground and he doesn't like being cluttered up," said O'Shea, who has booked Zac Purton for the ride. "We won this race last year with Holler and although it's a stronger version of this race, Impending is a much better horse on face value and in terms of his form." O'Shea added: "He will be very adept in the ground and I think he's improved dramatically since his last run."
