Godolphin runner Trenchant carries winning form into his black type debut at Flemington on Saturday, but has interestingly drifted in 2016 Taj Rossi Series Final betting markets.
Trenchant trialled well in the lead-up to his competitive debut in early June, but clearly required a run to truly begin learning his craft when beating only one opponent home in a Geelong minor over 1200m first-up.
Responding well for third in the Friends Of Epworth Handicap (1200m) on June 18th, the Medaglia D’Oro colt produced a particularly smart effort to hit the line close to three lengths in the clear of closest rival Curvature in the Bay And Ranges Handicap (1400m) on June 25th.
Trenchant has been charged with carrying 59kgs in the Taj Rossi Series Final, but should receive a gem of a ride by in-form hoop Craig Williams.
Having opened at a quote of $2.50, the two-year-old is yet to herald much interest at all but remains sole occupant of the top line of Taj Rossi Series Final betting at a $2.80 quote.
The Tony McEvoy-trained Cobbmore has only made two appearances through his short career so far, but has continued to firm to a quote of $5 in Taj Rossi Series Final betting markets.
Stamping himself as one to watch with an impressive two length win in the Schweppes 2.y.o Maiden Plate (1400m) on June 5th, the More Than Ready gelding produced a keen turn of foot to run on for fifth in the Bay And Ranges Handicap last time, and is clearly looking for more distance.
Drawn ideally in barrier 2, Cobbmore will be partnered by Luke Currie on Saturday, who guided the two-year-old to his maiden race win.
Fast ‘N’ Rolling is yet to finish outside the first three through his short but consistent racing career so far and is perched well in Taj Rossi Series Final betting markets.
Placing second behind Our Jovanna in the Pat Hyland Hall Of Fame Maiden (1000m) on debut, the son of Fastnet Rock placed third in a Morphettville sprint over 1300m on June 4th before again placing third in the Bay And Ranges Handicap last time out.
South Australian raider Captain Duffy ($7.50) interestingly figures as the only other runner currently perched at Taj Rossi Series Final odds of less-than $10 with Ladbrokes Australia.
