Clinton McDonald is yet another trainer who has no problems with the rain clouds rolling in over Sydney this week.

In fact he’s hoping there’s more of it as he readies five year old mare Umatain for race five on the Canterbury program over 1900m.

On the surface it seems a strange position given Umatain has started five times on slow tracks and not once finished inside the top three.

She has won on heavy ground though and McDonald is adamant it’ll help her chances.

“That was half the reason we went up to Sydney was looking for the wet tracks, the wetter the better really,” he said.

His horse is in career best form and this is by far her best chance of claiming a Saturday metro win against both sexes.

She comes in off a fourth over 2400m at Sandown and before that she was second at Seymour over 2015m and won a mares race at Moonee Valley over 2400m.

“She’s a mare that’s in a really happy spot at the moment…by all reports everything is well with her,” McDonald said.

He thinks the drop in trip will also be an advantage as she just struggled to run it out at Sandown.

“We went to the 2400m and it was a funny run race, she just sort of petered out with 50m to go,” he said.

The trainer has tried to freshen her up a bit to get her ready for the 1900m and the wet track should help in that regard as it makes the journey a little more taxing.

The question will be whether or not she can find the front because once there there’s no doubt she’ll be running it out.

“She’ll go forward and hopefully lead…I think she’ll run really well,” he said.

“She’s a fast sort of one paced staying mare, she sort of bowls along…we’ll run her at a genuine speed and hopefully she can keep it going.”

She’ll jump from gate three in the 12 horse field with 55kg on her back and Corey Brown in the saddle.
