Written Tycoon has 11 yearlings entered for the Inglis Melbourne Premier which starts on Sunday. He has 14 lots entered for the Adelaide Magic Millions the following week.
We’re not about to indulge in some monologue on the relative merits of each of those 25 – that’s what catalogues are for.
However, anyone watching the flashy chestnut’s ‘form’ would feel compelled to give them more than a passing glance.
On Friday night, It Is Written won his third race over 1200m at Moonee Valley in what can be described as less than favourable circumstances. Slowly away, he was held up on the home turn, yet still won by a length.
On Saturday, Grand Emperor (below) won very well over 1200m at Caulfield and has now won two in town from just five outings. There’s some talk he may run in the Australian Guineas.
Then, on Sunday, his only runner in Australia – the nifty Annotator – won her assignment at Colac (as favourite) with a leg in the air and plenty to spare.
Three good reasons to inspect 25!
