Bells Of Troy Ready for 2014 Werribee Cup

November 18th, 2014

Having returned to racing in competitive form this time in, trainer Jackson Pallot is confident Thursday’s Werribee Cup (2000m) poses the perfect opportunity for classy runner Bells Of Troy to return to the winner’s circle.

Securing four wins and a further five minor places from her 24 competitive appearances at the races so far, Bells Of Troy began her racing career under the guidance of Wendy Kelly before transferring to the care of Pallot at the beginning of the season.

Having placed a still-credible fifth despite being blocked for a run in a minor over 2000m at Flemington on November 8th, Pallot said Bells Of Troy is the most expensive horse he has trained to date, but has been thrilled with the form and class displayed by the six-year-old over her three starts in his care to date.

“Bells Of Troy was the most we’ve spent on a tried horse and even though we’re still learning about her at this stage, we’re only $1000 behind already,” Pallot told Racing Victoria.

“For what we paid for her, it was a little bit of a risk with her form because we had to turn it around and her rating was still quite high but we’re looking like we’re on the right track.

“The main owner in her, Michael Ross, likes a punt and I said to him going into Bairnsdale that if she gets clear air then I pretty much can’t see her getting beaten and I was interviewed on radio that morning and I said something quite similar.

“I think she’s better suited on bigger tracks but she’s knocking on the door. I thought she should have finished second or third at Flemington last start with a little bit more luck in running.”

Running seventh in a minor at Caulfield over 1800m first-up this time, the Clangalang mare charged home to win the Lakes Entrance Bowls Club BM70 (2200m) at Bairnsdale on October 20th in her only other start prior to her most recent Flemington tilt.

Allocated the ideal barrier 6, Bells Of Troy has been confirmed to be partnered by jockey Jordan Childs in the 2014 Werribee Cup and will be required to carry 59.5kgs.
