Pembrook Caesar wins at Melton

February 08, 2013 15:53:28 UK

Victorian five-year-old Pembrook Caesar staked her claim on a range of mares' feature events when she won Friday night's Angilique Club Cup (2240m) at Melton in Melbourne.

Pembrook Caesar, a winner at eight of her past nine starts, set a solid pace for drive Jodi Qiuinlan in the cup and scored by 1.8 metres from fast-finisher Broadways Best.

Trainer Craig Demmler said he faced a choice between mares' feature races in Melbourne and Sydney over the next three weeks.

He should be able to get a good run through. Chuck Wagon is in peak form.

Meantime, co-trainer David Miles is confident Chuck Wagon can fully test likely short-priced favourite Earl Harbour in Saturday night's Terang Trotters Cup on the Victorian country circuit.

Earl Harbour ran a last-start sixth in the Australasian Trotting Championship (2760m) at Melton on 2nd February. Chuck Wagon was in lower class when second over 2240 metres at Melton on 26th January.

"The nine-horse field at Terang will suit Chuck Wagon's racing style," Miles said. "He should be able to get a good run through. Chuck Wagon is in peak form."

In Perth, emerging four-year-old Red Salute shaped as WA Pacing Cup prospect when he scored an impressive all-the-way win for champion reinsman Chris Lewis in Friday night's $50,000 Channel 9 Binshaw Classic (2130m) at Gloucester Park.

The Ross Olivieri-trained Red Salute, backed from $2 to $1.50 favouritism, was unextended by Lewis in beating Western Cullen and Showdownatmidnight.

Western Cullen raced outside Red Salute until shaken off nearing the home turn. Three wins have been scored in less than two weeks by Red Salute, who will be aimed at next season's $400,000 WA Pacing Cup and $250,000 Fremantle Cup.

"He had quite a bit in reserve on the line tonight," Lewis said. "This horse has really come forward in the past few weeks. I've been surprised by how far he's advanced. He's now putting it all together and can develop into a very good performer."

Managing-owner Denise Trobe praised Olivieri, Red Salute's former trainer Peter Tilbrook and reinsman Chris Voak, who is under suspension.

"Chris Voak has helped sort out Red Salute's quirks when driving him in trackwork," Trobe said. "He drove the horse in his previous two wins, then missed tonight's race through suspension.

"Peter Tilbrook settled Red Salute when he was a three-year-old last season. Ross has come back and put polish on Red Salute in the last six to eight weeks."

Red Salute's Binshaw victory gave former premier Perth trainer Olivieri his first feature event win since a disqualification.

Olivieri returned in December from a 12-month ban which followed an inquiry into a horse's elevated total carbon dioxide level. Red Salute was Lewis's third winner lon Friday night and 30 minutes later he won with Shardons Rocket for trainer Tony Svilicich.

Lewis had earlier driven Live High and Bundaberg Black, trained Olivieri and Natalie Duffy, respectively, to wins.

Svilicich had also been to the fore when winning with Inter Dominion Championship hope Mysta Magical Mach, driven by Morgan Woodley.
