‘Hoof right on the till’: Onthetake ready to pay out at Wagga

“She took a bit of working out in her first preparation, she’s a bit of a handful, a typically Krupt filly, she is a bit fiery and took a while to work out,” said Gorrel. “And we kept her up a bit too long, there was something there and I was trying to get to it but we put the white flag up and sent her to the paddock, gave her a nice long spell and she has come back well.

“We have tinkered a little bit with her work, which she needs a lot of because she is a big strong mare but we do a lot of slow work and swimming which seems to help her, and a just a bit of TLC. She likes to wander around and have a look at things, stand there and get lost in space for a couple of minutes.”

Last start Onthetake drifted back to last from a wide draw at Canberra but hit the line sweetly to finish a length off key rival here Acton Shale. Gorrel’s charge strips fitter third up and meets that runner 1kg better off.

“She still gets a bit fizzy pre-race but that’s just her, which she is slowly getting better at, but she isn’t far away and has her hoof right on the till,” said Gorrel.
