Mark Newnham is hoping his luck on the Wyong track can continue with his two runners on Wednesday.
Since kicking off his training career around 12 months ago Mark has had 13 winners, four of those at Wyong.
“The plan is for that to continue on Wednesday,” he said. “I was pretty happy when it was a metropolitan meeting with city prizemoney and we were racing at Wyong.
“Particularly for Postmaster General. He loves the 1000m and he loves Wyong.”
The Darby Racing gelding scored a strong front running win at the last Wyong meeting on April 6 and Mark said the plan is for him to hopefully do the same again.
“He is really quick and got away from them on the bend the other week. Josh (Parr) knows him really well and will try and ride the same race again. “It was a soft track when he won last start and we should get similar conditions on Wednesday.
“I really think he’s a 1000m specialist and this race is ideal. I got him up to 1200m for a couple of starts last preparation but he didn’t run it out. “I will keep him back in trip this time and that should suit him.”
A three-year-old by I Am Invincible, Postmaster General has had four starts at Wyong for two wins and a second.
He starts from barrier five in the GALAXY FINANCE GROUP HANDICAP.
The stable’s other runner Lucky Fish is in the 1350m VAWDREY TRAILERS AUSTRALIA HANDICAP.
“He just got beat at Newcastle last start but that is the story of his life. He has only won one race but has been pretty consistent placing,” Mark said.
“He needs the conditions to suit him and will hopefully get that. I took him to Newcastle because I knew the track would be good and he was only beaten a nose.
“I think he should get similar track conditions at Wyong and that will certainly work in his favour.
“Tommy (Berry) has ridden him before in a few races and trials and he understands him.
“This is my first full preparation with him. I got him from Gai in the middle of his last preparation and I’ve just changed a few things to hopefully get him right. “Fingers crossed I think he will go close to the money this time.”
Mark said the four-year-old Exceed and Excel gelding is raced by Hong Kong owners.
“They have given me three horses but I haven’t had a winner yet. The other two are young ones so it would be great to break through for them.”
Mark currently has around 30 horses in work at Warwick Farm and will shortly double his numbers with an expansion to Randwick.
