Race 2: 6-Give The Signal (Clint Harvey)
Race 2: 1000m | FP: 2nd (of 7) | Jockey: Clint Harvey | STAB: W10.40 P2.60
Jumped ok from b5 and was able to secure a forward position, dropping in behind heels to settle 4th (2-wide). Held a similar position in the middle stages, rounding the turn and appeared a winning chance when sharing 3rd (3-wide) swinging for home. Was under hard riding from the top of the straight but failed to quicken sufficiently, working home evenly to finish 3rd beaten 2.8L.
Give The Signal produced a solid first-up performance and was given every chance by rider Clint Harvey. She loomed as a winning chance on the turn but found a couple of her rivals a bit too sharp over the final stages.
We plan on starting her second-up over 1400m before stepping her up to a mile and beyond, where we believe she is capable of picking up a race or two this campaign.
