NOBLET TAKING CARE OF FIRST UP ASSIGNMENT

Ballarat trainer Andrew Noblet says he’s taking care of when and where his new rising star, Ginger Jones will make her first up run after being withdrawn from the action over Christmas in favour of a Caulfield assignment this Saturday

Ginger Jones has an impressive record of finishing in the first two from four of his five starts so far in his career and Noblet understands the importance of finding the right race to compete in.

“We really don’t want to waste the first-up run,” Noblet said.

With that in mind the stable scratched Ginger Jones from his first up assignment of tackling the Listed Christmas Stakes on Boxing Day in favour of running in a Benchmark 84 Handicap at Caulfield Racecourse this Saturday.

“We scratched him from the Christmas Stakes, just looking for something more in his grade for his rating,” Noblet said.

“Although he drew a good barrier, we thought we’d just wait for something a little bit easier.”

Jones is a half brother to Noblets former Group 1 winning runner Silent Sedition and recently won a jumpout with ease giving the trainer a headache as to where to send him next landing on this weekend as the best option. 

“He’s drawn a nice barrier in the big field so the race sets up all right,” Noblet said.

“It has come up a good field on Saturday so it will be interesting to see how he measures up.”

Should Ginger Jones win the race on Saturday it poses another issue for Noblet as to where to take the 6 year old next with a significant ratings rise causing a problem.

“They don’t run many of those races on Saturday in that class over 1100m at Caulfield, which is his go,” Noblet said.

“He’ll have to take what we can find to an extent.”

Jones currently sits as a $16 shot in betting to win the handicap.
