Frank Robinson runs Roy Had Enough in the Grade 3 Cup Trial over 1800m at Greyville on Saturday and realises the necessity for a big run if he is to stand a chance of making it in to the Vodacom Durban July field.
Robinson said, “He’s doing very, very well, I am very happy with him. We have got to try and qualify him for the July and Anton (Marcus) is riding him. He had a few issues and a few niggles last season but this season he is much better. If you watch his last run he actually ran away from Eyes Wide Open (In the Listed Sledgehammer over 1800m on the Greyville poly) and that one came out and won the WSB 1900. I’m expecting a good run from him. He has to otherwise he’s not going to get into the July. Although, he may get in if he runs second or third, I don’t know.”
The Australian-bred colt by Pierro carries joint top weight of 60kg and has a plum draw of two. All five of his wins, from 1600m to 1900m, have been at Greyville, including three on the turf. He will be a big runner on Saturday.
