Keeping Cool in the city of churches


Keep Cool will be out to continue his love affair with Moprhettville when he resumes on Saturday.

The Danny O'Brien trained galloper has three wins and two second placings from his five trips to Adelaide, and he will be looking to emulate his first-up 1400m win at Morphettville last Spring.

"The horse is in fantastic order and he has continued to get better with each preparation," O'Brien said.

In the 2011/12 season, Keep Cool worked through his grades with three wins and five placings from nine starts - his only failure came when he stepped out to 2500m for the first time at Flemington on a Heavy track.

"He seems to relish the trip away (to Adelaide) and we are confident that he will build on his strong season just gone."

O'Brien will have four runners in Adelaide on Saturday including listed winners Bush Aviator and Cambiaso, as well as Hollywood, who is a daughter of O'Brien's dual Group 1 winner, Glamour Puss.

At the Mornington metropolitan meeting, O'Brien will also saddle up The New Boy and Hidden Message.
