Dabernig expects young colt to fire fresh

2 years ago

Tom Dabernig rates promising three-year-old Tony Nicconi (Caulfield Race 1) as the best of Lindsay Park's large team of runners across the weekend.

Lindsay Park has three horses in at Moonee Valley on Friday night, then a further seven at Caulfield on Saturday, and Dabernig says the Nicconi colt is a good chance to resume a winner.

Tony Nicconi returns after an impressive first campaign, which yielded two wins (one at Group 3 level) and a placing.

Top apprentice Lachlan King has the ride and will take three kilos off, meaning Tony Nicconi will carry 58.5kg in the 1100-metre Benchmark 78 event.

"He comes into the race well with the claim, he's got good form at the track, and I expect him to go well first-up," Dabernig said.

The stable also has two strong hopes – Art Collection (to be ridden by Craig Williams) and Swan Island (Jamie Kah) - in the 1000-metre G3 Chairman's Stakes (Race 5).

"Art Collection has got good talent, she's drawn a good gate, got a good jockey, and I think she'll go really well," said Dabernig.

On first-starter Swan Island, Dabernig added: "She absolutely flew a week ago in a Flemington jumpout.

"She's got a good jockey and is by a sire (Spirit Of Boom) that gets lots of two-year-old winners, so I expect her to run really well."
