Former Albany galloper I’m Called Earl is relishing his new environment and will be at short odds to make it a trifecta of wins in the Ceacon Handicap (1300m) at Port Hedland on Sunday.
The former Steve Wolfe-trained gelding, now in the hands of Anne King, was ultra impressive at his first up start in Port Hedland when he scored comfortably by 1 ¼ lengths from Clark County.
The son of Zentsov Street then backed up in equally solid fashion when he scored by one length from Dark Tryst at Roebourne.
This race is slightly tougher but his form is hard to fault and he has the credentials to make it three wins from as many starts.
Stable mate Princess Deidre is another who is experiencing career-best form and will attract solid support in the Urban Sole Handicap (1400m).
Previously in the care of Lark Hill trainer Ben Pearce, the Grandera filly has won two races and been placed twice from her four starts since entering the King camp.
Her main threat appears to be Major Bligh but she easily accounted for that gelding at Marble Bar last fortnight and meets him 1kg better in weight terms.
Brynbella has been placed on five occasions from 14 career starts but gets her chance to break through in the Centurion Transport Maiden (1200m).
The State City mare was runner up at Port Hedland and Marble Bar recently, beaten a neck and ¾’s of a lengths respectively.
She is the best of trainer Stephen Meadowcroft’s chances with Dante’s Mountain needing a major form turnaround.
If Shovely can reproduce his last-start run he will come into serious consideration in the Port WA PTY LTD (Bear & Rabbit) Handicap.
The Jack Cockell-trained gelding ran third to form galloper I’m Called Earl at Roebourne and scored successive wins at Leonora previously.
Look for improvement from Prosaic who is better than what her last placing at Broome on June 23 would suggest.
Albany trainer Dixie Solly and jockey Danny Miller can combine and salute with consistent galloper Come Quickly in the QSD Works Handicap (1600m).
And recent Marble Cup winner Racso can continue his winning run in the last, the Goodline Handicap over 2050m.
