GOLLAN SPRINTER OFF TO HONG KONG

Trainer Tony Gollan was set to run one of his stable stars in a Queensland Group One this weekend but a sharp change in direction has seen the two year old pulled from the card and booked on flights to Hong Kong

Popular Queensland horse off to Hong Kong

The horse in question had been down as a leading hope for Queensland in the Group One JJ Atkins this weekend but has now been pulled from that race and transferred to leading Hong Kong trainer Casper Fownes.

Two year old Capital Tower who won three from three at the start of his career was one time favourite for the JJ Atkins a week on Saturday at Eagle Farm.

In The Week, Capital Tower was listed as a $15 chance with TAB after finishing less than three lengths from the winner in both the Group 2 Champagne Classic and Group 2 Sires’ Produce Stakes.

Gollan confirmed that Capital Tower, who was a $600,000 purchase at yearling sales had been gelded and was now off to Hong Kong.

Capital Tower is owned by the Hong Kong-based Peter Law, who purchased the Godolphin owned Chenier with an eye towards the 2021 Derby, before he tragically died mid-race in the Classic Cup last year.

The withdrawal of Capital Tower from betting in the JJ Atkins leaves Sheza Belter as clear $4.00 favourite for the Group One contest with Political Debate on the second line of betting at $4.50.

Meanwhile in Stradbroke Handicap betting Desleigh Forster trained Apache Chase has jumped in betting after winning the Group 1 Kingsford Smith Cup when beating home Paulele. Apache Chase has now moved to second favourite behind Mick Price trained Ayrton.
