Tudor has been a consistent performer throughout his racing career without winning out of turn, but he returned to winning form when he led from start to finish to take out the Listed Chester Manifold Stakes (1400m) at Flemington on January 16.

Harrison elected to include Tudor in the nominations for the 2016 Australia Stakes that were released earlier in the week, but he told Racing Ahead that he will save the Strategic gelding for the Listed John Dillon Stakes (1400m) at Caulfield on January 26.

“We will probably go to the John Dillon,” Harrison said.

“He has come through it really well and I am really pleased with the way that he is handling it all.

“We did step-up his work a bit and he is really handling it well.

“He doesn’t knock himself around too much with anything that he does, but I think that he can take a bit more.

“I am very pleased with him.”

Tudor contested the Listed Blue Diamond Preview (1000m) at Caulfield in just his second race start and he finished in the placings in the Listed Abell Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley last year, but his Chester Manifold Stakes victory was his first at black-type level.

Harrison was delighted to finally score a feature race win with the four-year-old and he is hopeful that he can continue that form when he tackles another 1400 metre Listed event in the 2016 John Dillion Stakes.

“It really suited him,” Harrison said.

“With the blinkers on he jumped much better and that put him into that position.

“He kept on rolling along.

“He is such a lovely horse, he is easy to do anything with and he has a great nature.

“To win some black-type with him finally – he has run a few placings and he ran in the Australia Stakes last year and didn’t have a lot of luck.”

Recent winners of the John Dillon Stakes include Finishing Card (2014), Southern Speed (2012), Danzylum (2011), Youth (2005), Tycoon Ruler (2004) and Bonotto (1999), while Tudor will have the opportunity to become the first horse since Danzylum in 2011 to complete the Chester Manifold Stakes/John Dillon Stakes double.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off
    topic but I had to tell someone!

    Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using
    for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a
    good platform.

  36. Itamar Serp

    Hey there! I know this is sort of off-topic but
    I had to ask. Does managing a well-established
    blog such as yours require a large amount of work? I’m brand new to writing a blog
    but I do write in my journal daily. I’d like
    to start a blog so I can share my own experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
    Appreciate it!
