4 FROM 5 FOR 5YO

PROMISING More Than Ready gelding Champing continued his climb up the ladder as one of Sydney’s most exciting gallopers recording his fourth win from five career starts in the @royaltandwick On Twitter Handicap (1100m) at Warwick Farm today.

The Pam Webber trained sprinter put the writing on the wall for today’s effort with a slashing trial win ahead of his spring return.
Champing settled just off the speed in the Benchmark 75 before letting down with a swift burst of acceleration then holding off a late challenge to score in impressive style.

The five-year-old son of More Than Ready’s only defeat came at Canberra two starts ago where he was blocked for a run at a crucial stage yet still managed to run third.

Champing is out of AJC Gimcrack Stakes winner Spurcent, a daughter of Flying Spur and thus bred on the exact same cross that delivered one of More Than Ready’s two Golden Slipper winners, Sebring.

Today’s Warwick Farm meeting was a happy occassion for More Than Ready who also supplied debut winner Prinscengracht who overcame a wide draw and a big field to win the Lansvale Plate (1300m) for trainer Anthony Cummings and jockey Nash Rawiller.
Prinsengracht, named after a canal in Amsterdam, is raced by his breeder Gerry Harvey and is a son of Naturalism mare, True Confession, a half-sister to multiple Group 1 winner Shamekha and a close relation to Magic Millions hero Brave Warrior.
