Godolphin weekend runners update

Godolphin's trainer James Cummings comments on stable's runners at Flemington and Rosehill on Saturday.


Race 7 - Aurie’s Star Handicap-Group 3       (1200m)

HOME OF THE BRAVE (IRE) - 7yo Gelding by Starspangledbanner (AUS) out of Blissful Beat (GB)
“Home Of The Brave has continued to acclimatise well as we get closer to his first-up assignment in the G3 Aurie’s Star.”
“While he’s had a solid preliminary foundation for this, he will no doubt show improvement through the run as he gets more accustomed to how races unfold here.”
“As a racy and sharp style of horse, he should still show the speed required to be competitive among these horses.”


Race 6 - The Rosebud-Listed   (3yo Qlty)       (1100m) 

PLAGUE STONE (AUS) - 3yo Colt by Lonhro (AUS) out of Giggleswick (AUS)
“Plague Stone has been bottled up and held together as we proceed second up to the Rosebud.”
“He continues to look very sharp since his strong win over five furlongs a few weeks ago and looks set to let down strongly yet again in what looks another suitable race early on in his campaign.”
