Beckett bound for more glory
MOURA trainer Dallas Beckett looks set to continue his recent domination of Bundaberg racing when he suits up six of his team for Sunday’s bonus meeting at Thabeban Park.
It is an extra meet which was allocated to the club in the wake of the Rockhampton track still being out of bounds after suffering major flood damage, and Beckett could be the biggest beneficiary.
He will be represented by debutante Spring Viking in the Maiden, Thundering Speed (Novice), Spring Idol (Fourth Grade), Spring Image and Clear Speed in the Fifth Grade events, and Chilling Speed (Best 8).
Spring Viking has drawn the inside, and with little form of note among his rivals, he needs just a bit of ability to get the money.
Spring Idol has won her past three starts, Spring Image and Chilling Speed are each chasing hat-tricks, and Thundering Speed is a last-start winner, while Clear Speed is working up to a win after being runner-up at her last outing.
Palomino, which is also owned by Beckett, could be Chilling Speed’s hardest to beat.
Rising star Misty Martin should go on her winning ways in the Fourth and Fifth Grade.
