CAMPANIA trainer Rhonda Hall will saddle up three of her stable tenants at Tattersall’s Park on Sunday and all appear to have strong chances of winning.

Hall has long had a good opinion of her four-year-old Rutherglen Rhul and he hasn’t let her down this preparation with the gelding unbeaten from his two starts.

Rutherglen Rhul scored an impressive all the way win first-up from a spell in a class two handicap over 1400 metres and he followed up with another outstanding performance to win over the same trip in a strong class four.

This is by far his biggest test but the gelded son of El Maggiore has matured into an outstanding galloper and could be headed for a tilt at the Devonport Cup if he performs as Hall expects on Sunday.

Rutherglen Rhul goers around in race nine, the last race of the day, a BM78 over 1600 metres.

Illusion Of Magic (race 2) is a lightly raced five-year-old that has had only two starts and it was his last start effort two weeks ago when second to Tough Midori in a maiden over 1100 metres that suggested he might have a future.

Mugging (Street Cry-Robelee) won over 1400 metres two starts back and wasn’t far away at his most recent outing so Hall expects the well bred six-year-old to make an impact at the business end of proceedings on Sunday.

Mugging will line up in the class two handicap (race 8) that boasts handy opposition.
