Talented young Cranbourne trainer Stephen Theodore has warned punters not to ignore first-up two-year-old winner Crack A Roadie when doing their form for tomorrow’s $150,000 Maribyrnong Plate at Flemington.
Theodore said it was always hard to get horses to peak twice, but he was extremely confident his colt would get the job done tomorrow.
“I gave him a few days off after he won at the Valley, then he came back via the swimming pool and the water-walker,” Theodore told TVN this morning.
“He had a sharp gallop last Saturday morning and went really well,” he added.
Theodore said the son of Charge Forward was “such a kind animal and because of that I was very soft on him going into Moonee Valley.
"We left a lot in the tank,” he said.
Bet365 has Crack A Roadie marked a $4.60 second favourite behind the Darley-owned Citations at $3.50.
