“I am pleased with Eaton’s Gold heading into Friday night’s race. He has trained on well since his unlucky last start (following which the jockey that caused the interference got a 3 days suspension). Overall our apprentice Shafiq has the best record on Eaton’s Gold so we have him on board again on Friday night. He has drawn nicely in barrier 4 of 12 and Shafiq’s claim will help make him more competitive in what is actually a strong field. With any luck I think he can finish somewhere in the first 4 mix for us in this race.”
