TRAINER Charlie Goggin is optimistic about the chances of his star sprinter Too Many Reds keeping his unbeaten record this season intact despite having to carry top weight in only his second appearance in an open handicap.
Goggin has his eyes on the Newmarket Handicap with Too Many Reds and tonight’s contest (race seven) is clearly the gelding’s biggest test.
“He definitely has his share of weight with 59 kilograms and the opposition tonight is good so he’ll have to do everything right to win,” Goggin said.
“He’s pulled up well from his last run and it will most likely be his last run before the Newmarket and if he is to be competitive in that race he should be winning tonight,” he said.
Goggin also expects his promising three-year-old filly Seeking Chi to be competitive in a class two handicap over 1400 metres.
Seeking Chi also is unbeaten from two starts this preparation but she is again up against older a more experienced opposition in race eight over 1400m.
Listen to what trainer Charlie Goggin had to say about the chances of Too Many Reds and Seeking Chi in Launceston tonight.
