Impressive last start winner Mo’s Crown has been approved for an important gear change just 24 hours before his races at Rosehill on Saturday with the Jason Coyle-trained gelding to wear bar plates.
Stewards announced on Friday afternoon that they had acceded to a late request from Coyle to allow his galloper to wear bar plate (front) in the Members Benchmark 88 Handicap (1100m).
Coyle told stewards Mo’s Crown works in bar plates and is shod the day before he races.
He explained that his farrier was of the opinion that Mo’s Crown should keep the bar plates on for tomorrow’s race ‘to assist the horse with the tracks becoming firmer during the summer months’.
Mo’s Crown is one of the leading chances in an open affair and is a $9 chance with TAB.com.au to make it back-to-back victories.
The son of Uncle Mo was an emphatic winner at Kembla Grange last over 1200m and will drop back 100m for Saturday’s assignment.
Tim Clark will partner Mo’s Crown on Saturday.
