Former Kiwi trained mare Bounding can make amends for her first up flop in the Oakleigh Plate when she steps out in the Group 1 $700,000 Banjo Galaxy (1100m) at Rosehill on Saturday.

Bounding was a well fancied $5 third favourite for the Group 1 $500,000 Clamms Seafood Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caulfield on February 27 but was never in the hunt to finish two and three quarters of a length ninth to the Peter Moody trained Flamberge.

But trainer Peter Snowden could offer plenty of excuses for her defeat after Bounding was highly excited before the race and sweated up badly and he expects her to be more relaxed on Saturday.

“I think it stemmed around it being a very hot day,” Snowden told Racenet.

“She had to go to the post preliminary for about fifteen minutes and she just melted.

“She was in a lather of sweat and she’s never been like that.

“Then she raced accordingly, reared up in the gates and nearly flipped over, over raced badly and that left her short.”

“With the benefit of that run and a bit more work under her belt I think she’ll present much better on Saturday.”

Snowden has been happy with Bounding’s work since she arrived back at her Randwick stables and she pleased race jockey Kerrin McEvoy in a solid gallop on Tuesday morning.

“Kerrin (McEvoy) rode her in work on Tuesday and said it was very strong work,” Snowden, who trains in partnership with his son Paul, said.

“Actually it was the best work of the day from my team.”

Snowden is not concerned with the prospect of a rain affected track for Bounding who has three wins and a second on soft tracks.

“If we get a soft track that won’t worry her either. She’s in the race up to her ears,” Snowden said.

The Rosehill track is currently rated a Soft 5 on Thursday with more showers predicted in the lead up to the weekend.

While under the care of Kiwi trainer Ken Kelso, Bounding was able to win the 2014 Group 1 NZ$200,000 Sistema Railway Stakes (1200m) at Ellerslie before being transferred to the Snowdens.

The Lonhro mare was able to win at her first run for the Snowden stable when she beat Rich Enuff in the Group 3 $150,000 theshark.com.au Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield during the 2015 Melbourne Spring Carnival and then ran third to Catkins in the Group 3 $125,000 Irresistible Pools Sheraco Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on September 12.

Bounding has drawn nicely at barrier seven in the original draw but could come in two spots if all the four emergencies failed to gain a start.

Bounding has been rated as a $12 chance for the Galaxy with Ladbrokes.com.au who have the Gai Waterhouse trained English on top of their market order at $4.40.

The Galaxy market order at Ladbrokes.com.au: $4.40 English, $6 Terravista, Fell Swoop, Malaguerra, $10 Our Boy Malachi, $12 Shiraz, Bounding, $14 Rebel Dane, Ball Of Muscle, $17 Flamberge, $21 Dothraki, Lumosty, Pittsburgh Flyer, Griante, $26 Boss Lane, $31 Miss Promiscuity, $51 Famous Seamus, Lord Of The Sky.
