Fresh from landing his first Group 1 on Invincibella in the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) last weekend, Jason Collett will shoot for more stakes success when he rides Nicci’s Gold in the Listed $A160,000 Civic Stakes (1350m) at Rosehill tomorrow.
Collet has a strong book of nine rides for eight different trainers tomorrow and is confident that Nicci’s Gold can follow up her last start win at Rosehill two weeks ago.
“It’s a step up on Saturday and she’s probably not the best weighted horse, but in saying that I don’t think it looks like an overly strong Civic Stakes and a heavy to soft track is really going to benefit her,” he said.
“She relishes that sort of going. She’s worked her way to that level and now she gets her opportunity to try to get a stakes win for her page.
