Angelology is a star jumper and even though he has the good horse’s weight, he should still have enough class to get home against his rivals in the Max Kluske Memorial Steeplechase at Murray Bridge today.
His CV is accomplished as any horse in work today, with victories in the Australian Steeplechase, Yalumba Classic Hurdle and SA Grand National among his seven wins from fifteen starts over obstacles.
While he has been given the big ask of carrying 74.5Kg, this is reduced to 71.5Kg with the claim for Darryl Horner Jnr, who is rapidly making a name for himself as one of the best young riders in Australian jumping – indeed, he partnered this horse to a win in the SA Grand National Steeplechase at his last ride.
This field isn’t without depth – Unabashed is certainly a horse of great promise – but Angelology should prove too good for the.
Locally trained galloper I’m A Bluebagger has made an impressive start to his jumping career and can continue that momentum with a win in the Carlton Draught Hurdle.
From the John O’Connor stable, the ex-WA trained gelding made a winning debut over obstacles at this track and distance back in April.
Both jumps runs since then have been sound, finishing a narrow second to Searaven at Morphettville when conceding a big weight advantage, and then running second to Abebe in the SA Grand National Hurdle.
He had a flat run subsequent to that which was more than acceptable, and natural progression as well as a return to his home track should see him turn the tables on Abebe this time round.
