Peter Sinclair looks to break drought with strong Moree charge

Peter Sinclair will saddle up 14 gallopers today at his home track of Moree Race Club for their rescheduled meeting. 

The eight-race-program was meant to go ahead on Thursday, but rain forced the postponement of the meeting, with a good card now on offer to punters and racing fans today.

The popular North West will garner some attention at Moree, having gone nearly two months without a winner since landing a treble at the same track on May 29 and he will be hoping his luck changes.

It really has been a luckless run of 26 starts without victory for Sinclair, who in the process has gone very close, finishing with 11 minor placings, while his runners have never been too far away.

Sinclair currently has two favourites and many chances throughout the meeting, with his best hopes potentially Crystal Billy in race six, the 1400m Benchmark 58 Handicap and Write On in race eight, the 1300m Class One Handicap. 

Clayton Gallagher jumps aboard Crystal Billy, who finished a nice third at Moree earlier this month. 

Gate seven won’t be an issue, but connections will be hoping for a track upgrade during the day.

Jacob Golden then hops on Write On in the ‘get out’ stakes, jumping from gate six. 

The three-year-old looks a good chance on his best form and has won on the soft. 

The Moree trainer will also play the numbers game in race four, the 950m Class Three Handicap, starting four runners. 

Scout (Jacob Golden), Ah Well (Matthew McGuren), Mymill (Kath Bell-Pitomac) and Head On (Yvette Lewis) all go around. 

Scout won two starts back at Moree on a good surface and is the $5 second favourite in this very open jump and run event. 

Mymill ($15) is coming off solid picnic form, but this event is a step up, Ah Well is first-up after a 187-day spell and looks suited to longer distances and Head On jumps up from a second placing in a Benchmark 45 Handicap to this tough little Class Three Handicap. 

Racing at Moree is scheduled to get underway at 12.05pm.

Gates open at 11.30am and conditions of entry can be found on the Moree Race Club website.
