Sincero back to his best

It takes a very good horse to win the race and one horse that fits the bill is Sincero (pictured-Photo- Taron Clarke) for trainer Steve Farley. He was excellent when winning the Stradbroke last year, and I would have to say he looks as though he is now going as well as he ever has leading into weekend.

I kept missing Steve when I tried to contact him today, so instead of getting some quotes off him, I thought it would be worth looking at Sincero’s form leading into the Doncaster.

His effort first-up behind More Joyous was exceptional when wide throughout the run and still working to the line. The form out of that race has obviously been outstanding with Metal Bender and More Joyous both winning group 1 races next start.

He then drew very wide again in the George Ryder again at WFA and ran a very similar race to go down in a five way finish on the line. He drops to 55.5kg on Saturday and even though his record is awesome on top of the ground, any rain would not put any doubt into it as he has won on affected tracks before.

The only query that Steve Farley has to overcome is the fact that at both his last preparations Sincero has ran a very flat race. Whether there have been genuine excuses we don’t know about, or if the trainer has implemented a different regime this time in work to combat that is yet to be known.
The main reason to catch up with Steve was that I was very keen to find out if he would apply the blinkers to Sincero or if he would leave that for later in the preparation. If I find out I will try to get it on the site as soon as I can.

*It shapes as a great edition of the Doncaster and you could make a case for nearly every horse in the race! Stay tuned throughout the week as I will endeavour to keep you updated with news and some views on the big races.
