Heavy For Habitual

There has been a fair bit of rainfall in Sydney leading into Saturday’s Rosehill meeting with a heavy track beckoning for our Goldners Horse Transport Handicap runner Habitual Offender.

Drawn nicely in barrier 3 for James McDonald, Habitual Offender is somewhat of a question mark on heavy going as he has raced only twice on significantly rain affected going with mixed results.

Failing to handle the track when beaten 16 lengths at Ellerslie in late January, he was all at sea but it was, Michael Moroney recalls, “a strange track that day.”

“The skies opened just before the race.”

Earlier in his career Habitual Offender was an impressive maiden winner on a slow track at Ellerslie, leaving Moroney unsure as to whether or not the Guillotine gelding thrives on wet tracks or not.

“We can’t be 100% sure but other than the track rating he is going very well.”

“This race probably has a bit more depth in in that last time but he is a horse on the up, a nice stayer in the making.”

Murcielaga also runs on Saturday, the five-year-old resuming in the Robhar Breeding & Racing Plate at Sandown.

A horse who can pull out a run fresh, the Testa Rossa gelding has been in fine order since coming back to the stables.

“We have been very pleased with him,” Moroney enthused.

“He looks better than he ever has and he is a happy horse.”

“Barrier one is not ideal for him as he is a horse who has always liked a bit of room but with luck in running he could run a cheeky race first up.”
