Trainer Mark Webb is confident of Avienus’ chances in the 2011 Railway Stakes this Saturday November 19, 2011, after she produced a promising track gallop at Ascot this morning.
“It wasn’t hammer and tongs but it was nice work,” Webb said.
“She went 1200 metres in evens and a working gallop the last 600 metres.
“That will probably do her now as her fitness levels are pretty good coming off her recent runs in Melbourne.
“She got a bit crook on the plane coming over but that was more due to circumstances of being delayed on the tarmac at Tullamarine for three hours.
“She has bounced back from that and things are pretty good.”
Avienus, who finished fourth in the Group 2 Matriarch Stakes at Flemington Racecourse last start, has drawn barrier 10 for the 2011 Railway Stakes.
The two emergencies are inside her and if they don’t run she will come into eight which is probably ideal,” Webb said.
Avienus will be ridden by in-form jockey Craig Williams in the 2011 Railway Stakes.
“It a big key having Craig on her,” Webb said.
“It certainly gives you some confidence.
“He has ridden her several times and won on her so he knows her pretty well.”
