Final Field & Barriers – Gunsynd Classic 2012

April 26th, 2012

The final field and barrier draw has been released for the Group 3 Gunsynd Classic, which is due to run at Eagle Farm Racecourse this Saturday April 28, 2012.

Included in the 2012 Gunsynd Classic final field is Trump who finished second to Morning Captain in the Listed National Jockey Celebration Queensland Day last start.

Trainer Robert Heathcote believes Trump will be at his best in the 2012 Gunsynd Classic.

“I thought he was very unlucky behind Morning Captain last run,” Heathcote said.

“He copped some interference at the 800 metres which cost him his position right behind Morning Captain.

“He was only beaten a neck and came home very strongly.

“He’s come back a lot stronger this campaign and his first run back with 59 kilos when he came from last to finish sixth at Eagle Farm last month was very good on a leader-biased track.

“I think you’ll see him run a very strong race over 1600 metres which I think is his best distance.”

Trump has drawn barrier three for the 2012 Gunsynd Classic and will be ridden by jockey Ric McMahon.

Jack’s Back will also run in the 2012 Gunsynd Classic after finishing sixth behind Morning Captain and Trump last start.

“He’s been crying out for ground and should be very strong at the finish again,” trainer Kevin Kemp said.

“I’ve struggled to get the same rider on him at his past couple of runs and it’s a plus Jim Byrne is riding him again.”
