Trainer John Thompson is confident that Tremec is the best horse in the 2015 Caloundra Cup, but he believes that the enigmatic stayer needs to jump cleanly to be any chance in the Listed event at the Sunshine Coast this weekend.

Tremec made a slow start to his 2015 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival campaign and he missed placings in the Listed Parramatta Cup (1900m), Listed Randwick City Stakes (2000m) and Group 3 Manion Cup (2400m), but he returned to his best form to score a tough win in the Group 2 Chairman’s Handicap (2600m) at Royal Randwick on April 6.

The Zabeel gelding was rated one of several winning chances in the Group 3 Chairman’s Handicap (2200m) at the Gold Coast on April 25, but he missed the start by four lengths and he was never able to get into the race.

Thompson said that he is tried everything to help Tremec jump from the barriers consistently without any luck, but he told Sky Racing HQ that he fancies the chances of the gelding if he is able to jump cleanly in the 2015 Caloundra Cup this weekend.

“That is closer to his right distance rather than the last start, but it is basically all up to him,” Thompson said.

“He has got to behave and do it.

“He is the best horse in the race and he just has to get through the barriers in good shape and he will be fine.

“He is an old cagey bugger, he will do it one day and he won’t do it the next.

“In the past we have tried to give him more barrier education and it doesn’t appear to do anything.

“It is just a matter of him on the day and he is in great shape.”

Thompson has also included Whittington in the 2015 Bribie Handicap field and he is hoping that the four-year-old can return to his best form in the Listed event this weekend after he failed to fire in both the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m) at Caulfield on February 28 and the Listed Chief De Beers Quality (1110m) at Doomben on April 11.

“He is in good shape and I probably made the mistake of taking him to Melbourne early in the prep,” Thompson said.

“The owners wanted to have a crack at a big race because he was going so well and he has had a bit of a freshen since he has been back.

“Coming back to the 1000 metres is probably his go.”

Tremec is currently available at 2015 Caloundra Cup odds of $6 with Ladbrokes, while Whittington is priced at the lengthy quote of $26 to return to winning form in the Bribie Handicap.

    Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing
    a blog article or vice-versa? My website covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each
    other. If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!

    Hello! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask.

    Does managing a well-established blog such
    as yours require a large amount of work? I am brand new to
    operating a blog but I do write in my journal every day.
    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and views online.

    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations
    or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

    I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I
    never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth
    enough for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made
    good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful
    than ever before.

    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different web browsers and I must say this
    blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a reasonable price?

    Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!

    lot more attention. I’ll probably be back again to see more, thanks for the advice!

  14. Lelio Vieira Carneiro Junior

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe
    you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one
    or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this
    topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for
    me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

    might be now. You are so intelligent. You know therefore significantly with regards to this topic, made me in my view consider
    it from numerous various angles. Its like women and men are not
    interested until it is one thing to do with
    Lady gaga! Your personal stuffs excellent. Always
    care for it up!
