Formula One looking good for Friday

Formula One looking good for Friday

In a season where he has proved to be a frustrating horse for his owner, trainers and the punters, Formula One finally appears to be understanding what it means to be a racehorse. After unlucky runs in previous weeks he ran an encouraging third last Friday evening at Alexandra Park, having worked hard to lead and then kicking on strongly in the straight when challenged.

In this week's outing he meet's a nice field of C1 and C2 pacers, but from a handy draw and with James Stormont to drive he looks sure to get a nice run and his chance to deliver.

When watching Formula One last week from Addington Raceway, John was pleased with the development that he has seen in the horse under the tutelage of father Robert.

"Its good to see him finding the line now in his races and I really liked the way he put in for the fight," commented John on the night.

"He has come a long way and hopefully he continues on with his progress for Greg Brodie."

There are two other runners on the night for the Robert Dunn stable. Natural in Race Two showed good manners last week to run a close up third and another win for her looks close at hand. She won't be far away in an even field.

Changesaw is another new runner for the Puke stable and goes around in Race Three. Up from the deep south, he did his early racing out of the Brent Shirley stable, winning two races. He is probably a watch and see first up, but is a hope in what also appears an even line-up also.
