O'Brien's three-year-old team rolls on

Flemington trainer Danny O'Brien has a good hand in both tomorrow's feature three-year-old races – the Listed Kevin Hayes Stakes for fillies and Listed Zedative Stakes for the colts and gelding.

In the latter he saddles up Pins On Parade, who has drawn wide but should give a big sight.

“He's come back really well,” O'Brien said. “He's a very unlucky horse with barrier draws – he always seems to draw near the outside which can make it tough as he likes to go forward but I think he'll be hard to beat tomorrow.”

In the fillies race, O'Brien has two fillies in the well-performed Absolut Glam and the untapped Code Black.

Absolut Glam hasn't raced since finishing sixth in the Wakeful Stakes over the spring. She is a winner at her only fresh start and every run since then has been in stakes class.

“If there's good pressure on she's a filly that will be hitting the line strongly,” O'Brien said. “She raced really well in the spring and didn't have a lot of luck in the bigger races. She's come back a bigger and stronger filly.”

Code Black hasn't raced at stakes level yet but has been impressive winning both her career starts. She hasn't raced since being freshened following a win over the same track and distance in early December.

“She does everything right and has a good barrier draw to get the run of the race,” O'Brien said. “She's a really nice filly. She's done what she had to at her first couple of starts and has had the freshen-up but will only continue to improve with racing.

“I think she's up to stakes class and we'll see tomorrow if she's up to it yet.”
