ANOTHER TEST FOR A KNIGHT OF PRO
Jul 29, 2017
A Knight Of Pro is likely to jump favourite in the Schweppes Handicap (1300m), an open grade three-year-old race, at Belmont today.
The son of Proart is looking to string consecutive wins together after an ultra impressive victory a fortnight ago.
It was a high pressure race with good speed, so the form looks likely to stand up and A Knight Of Pro was a $3.30 chance with TABtouch on the morning of the race.
There are plenty of in-form gallopers in the event including Friaresque who is looking for a hat-trick of triumphs.
A heavy track may be the only issue A Knight Of Pro faces, with all eight career runs, for two wins and a further four placings, being on good tracks.
“It is a good race, but he has to be one of the chances,” jockey Jason Brown said who will ride A Knight Of Pro from gate three.
A good performance would cap off a good week for Harvey Racing after the win of Iron Maggie on Thursday.
