Here’s what Sean Kavanagh and Paul Stuart have to say about their runners in the Perth Cup and Galaxy heats at Cannington on Saturday.
We The People heads into the third heat of the Galaxy on the back of wins in her past four starts where she’ll clash with Sunset Bourbski.
“Unfortunately she’s come up against one of the best stayers in the country.”
“She’s going well and with luck she is capable of running a solid race but is likely racing for a place.”
All Zipped Up contests heat six of the Perth Cup.
“He’s had a freshen up with the Perth Cup in mind.”
“He’s trialled well in the last few weeks but box seven has hindered his chances.”
“Possible place chance if he can get clean running.”
Rapido Lass returns from nearly six months off the track against Shima Shine in heat two of the Perth Cup. Rapido Lass will jump from the pole.
“She’s been trialling well and is ready to go but this is a pretty big ask for her.”
“I nominated her for the Perth Cup series with a hope and prayer that she’d get a draw.”
“She’s got the draw but this field is tough.”
More Deductions goes around in heat four of the Perth Cup where he has box five, on the outside of the wide jumping Star Book in box four.
“He was my leading chance…but he’s drawn on the outside of Star Book…so that’s pretty much it.”
“The odds are stacked against him.”
Rostered Off makes his Cannington debut in heat four of the Galaxy after showing good form in 600m racing in Melbourne. The greyhound arrived in Stuart’s kennels a week and half ago.
“He’s a nice enough dog and he’s settled in well but he’s never raced over the 700m so he’s a bit of unknown quantity.”
“He trialled OK on Tuesday and he’s drawn OK out wide so we’ll see what he does.”
“They (the owners) wouldn’t have wasted their time sending him over if he was no good.”
