Trusting will start his Spring Carnival in Sydney

Patinack Farm trainer John Thompson would agree that arch rivals Darley got the better of him throughout the start of 2011 but the spring could change all that.

He’s preparing to bring back his spring squad in the next few days and there are some quality horses which looked to have improved form their time in the paddock.

One which he has big wraps on moving into the Sydney and Melbourne carnivals is Trusting.

“He looks fantastic, he just got a bit sore there last prep so we’ve had to put him away but with a bit of time off he’s come back better than ever,” Thompson said.

There’s no specific campaign mapped out for him, just that he’ll be starting off in Sydney.

“He’ll go back into work in Sydney and we’ll just see how he comes along, probably a race like the Epsom and we’ll go from there,” he said.

Trusting has shown plenty of promise and especially impressive was his versatility to race either forwards of back in the field.

Coming back at the same time will also be Gathering.

His campaign won’t be the same though, a different kind of horse suited to different kind of conditions.

“He’ll head to Melbourne for the spring and where we place him will depend on how he’s going,” he said”

Potentially the most exiting returns though are from Thompson’s rising three-year-olds Pane In The Glass and Boys On Tour.

He kept them with him in Brisbane during their spell and he’s been keeping a very close eye on their progress.

“I brought them up to Queensland to spell, they’ve done really well,” he said.

“Probably Boys On Tour will go back in for a race like the Golden Rose and Pane In The Glass will go through all the fillies races.”

Pane In The Glass was easily the best performing horse of the two in their two-year-olds preps but Boys On Tour showed a bit towards the end.

“I think Boys On Tour needed a few runs to work it all out, Pane In The Glass had one bad run other than that was very consistent,” Thompson said.

Boys On Tour has also come a long way  in terms of physical development as well.

“He’s filled out and looks more mature,” Thompson said.

Galazani is another which won’t be too far away for Patinack Farm and she could certainly win a race or two during the spring.

“We’ve always had a good wrap on her, she showed a lot of promise,” he said.

The ultimate goal for her would be a Melbourne Cup but a Caulfield Cup start is certainly a real possibility this year.

“We’ll try her through the handicaps and if she’s good enough she’ll get there (Caulfield Cup),” he said.

Thompson’s winter program in Brisbane took a big hit last week with No Evidence Needed scratched from the Doomben 10,000 and now into the spelling paddock to cover from injury.
