Super Mover ready to strike as Koby Jennings takes weight off John Sargent’s mind

JOHN Sargent expects that with even luck Super Mover will figure in the finish of the Tab.com.au Handicap (2200m) at Warwick Farm on Wednesday.

The in-form stayer is coming off an unlucky run at Scone last start where he was trapped deep before working hard to sit outside the leader.

The son of Alamosa did exceptionally well to finish fifth, beaten just over two lengths. Sargent’s stayer had previously put two wins together at Newcastle and Canterbury before going down in a strong battle against Major Major over 2400m.

The four-year-old galloped nicely on Saturday morning covering his last 1000m 1:07.2.

“He’s done very well since his Scone run and this looks a bit easier,” Sargent said. “He’s found some form and is holding it well.”

Super Mover was allotted an extra 2.5kg than what he carried at Scone but Koby Jennings shaves 3kg off meaning the gelding will carry just 56.5kg.

“He’s very well placed at the weights and Koby is riding exceptionally well at the moment,” Sargent said of the claimer who has posted five winners from his past 20 rides.

“Once these slow maturing types get into form they usually hold it for a while, especially horses that like the wet tracks.”

I’m Not Sure looks hard to beat first-up in the Tab Place Multi Handicap (1200m) after competing against better quality horses when last in work.

The son of Choisir was less than three lengths off Godolphin’s Holler in January but has only had one 900m trial heading into this race.

Prime Target only beat maiden company at Scone last start and is facing a huge leap in class in the Liverpool City Council Handicap.

But the Anthony Cummings-trained galloper should measure up to this grade at some point in his career and he will have an in-form Jason Collett to do the steering.

The Pro-Ride Plate (1200m) sees the return of Miss Denni. The Chris Waller-trained filly looked to have above average ability when she raced last prep and was rarely far away without breaking through.

Exotherm looked good placing at Hawkesbury on debut and should be better suited up to 1200m here. The Jason Coyle-trained filly looked a bit dour over the 1000m but had trialled well before her debut.

Exotherm is a daughter of Excites, who sired Coyle’s stable stalwart Scream Machine.

Kanji put up two solid performances in his first preparation and has trialled well before his return in the McGrath Estate Agents Plate (1200m).

Interestingly, the Haradasun gelding resumed over 1350m last campaign but trainer Joe Pride has elected for a shorter starting point for the three-year-old.

NIC ASHMAN’S BEST BETS AT WARWICK FARM

BEST: MISS DENNI (Race 3, No. 6) — Think she’s the best horse in the race. Whether they are too sharp or not remains to be seen but a fair price makes her a worthy gamble.

FRESH LEGS: BOLD BEGINNING (Race 2, No. 9) — Showed a bit of ability in one run last prep although looked very new. Recent trial figures suggests she’s definitely improved.

COUNTRY BOY: COCKTAIL TIME (Race 7, No. 6) We saw the country trainers stitch up the city slickers at Scone recently and this bloke has been going well in the better country races out there.
