Two In A Row For Zazparella?

There is a strong programme in place at Bendigo on Wednesday and we are looking forward to cheering on four nice horses - Zazparella, Nordic Duke, Bonnie Bell and Lord Barrington.

Drawn barrier one in the Danny Curran Handicap, Zazparella (pictured) is looking to make it two in a row after a gusty performance at Warrnambool a couple of weeks ago.

Rising a little in weight but to enjoy the services of champion rider Damien Oliver, Zazparella is a mare who thrives on racing and she has pleased us with her progress since.

"She is a terrific mare," Michael Moroney enthused, "absolutely nothing fazes her."

"A bit more rain about would help as she handles the heavy when a lot don't - but she is still more than capable on good to slow tracks."

Contesting the same race, drawn out wider in barrier 11 for Chad Schofield, is Nordic Duke who was close up in the Warracknabeal Cup at his most recent outing.

Suited up to the 2400m of Wednesday's race, the Viking Ruler gelding is, says Moroney, better suited at Bendigo.

"He wasn't really suited on the tight turning track last time," he said, adding that a lack of pace was also an issue.

"The race was devoid of speed and the winner led throughout."
Nordic Duke boasts a handy record at Bendigo and his form on rain affected tracks also reads well.

The Kym Hamm Handicap is the following race and we are looking for an improved showing from Bonnie Belle who has been racing without luck of late.

"She disappointed us a little bit last start as we were confidence that she could win," said Moroney.

"But we have added the blinkers and she has finally drawn a gate so hopefully she can turn her form around."

Covering ground at Flemington last start, Bonnie Belle was held up for runs at her two previous outings and she is certainly due a change of fortune.

Lord Barrington contests the following race and he has his hoof firmly on the till after an eye-catching second at Warrnambool last start.

"He was only narrowly defeated," said Moroney, hoping that there will be a bit more rain about for the three-year-old.

"He is back 100m so it would suit him if the track was a bit demanding. In saying that he only needs give in the ground to prove competitive."
