Godolphin weekend runners update

Godolphin's trainer James Cummings discusses #TeamGodolphin weekend runners at Doomben and Morphettville on Saturday:


Race 5 - Bright Shadow Quality-LR  (F&M)       (1200m) 

EPIDEMIC (AUS) - 4yo Filly by Lonhro (AUS) out of Mnemosyne (AUS)
“We’re looking for her to recapture the form she was in 12 months ago.”
“I like the way she’s galloping in her preliminaries this campaign.”
“She’s muscling up like she’s ready to offer something.”
“A placing would give me a bit of confidence that she’s not far away.”

Race 6 - Chief De Beers-LR  (Qlty)       (1110m) 

ISAURIAN (AUS) - 4yo Colt by Exceed And Excel (AUS) out of Byzantine (AUS)
“He looks capable of delivering a killer punch first-up on the way he’s performed in his preliminaries.”

Race 8 - Doomben Cup-Group 1  (WFA)       (2000m) 

TALLY (AUS) - 6yo Gelding by Street Cry (IRE) out of Itemise (USA)
“He probably needs to improve under the weight-for-age conditions at 2,000m, but he’s shown in the past that he can produce a special run.”
“He’s warming into his preparation and there are some suitable staying targets over the next few weeks in which he can be competitive.”
“He’s a solid middle-distance horse and he tends to step up at some stage in every preparation.”


Race - 4 TAB SA Fillies Classic-Group 3  (3yoF SW)       (2500m) 

ROCK DOVE (AUS) - 3yo Filly by Epaulette (AUS) out of Pouter (AUS)
“She’s had the grounding to perform well in a race like this.”
“The St Leger form should stand up pretty well in a race like this.”
“She’s been solid throughout her campaign. This is only her second preparation and she’s demonstrated how tough she is.”
