GYTRASH READY FOR TRACK RETURN

Top South Australian sprinter Gytrash is set to return to competitive action on Saturday after having surgery that has seen him out since competing in the Yes Yes Yes Stakes at Randwick in the Spring.

Gytrash set to return to the track at Morphettville

The Gordon Richards trained Gelding is set to line up on Saturday in the Group 1 Goodwood at Morphettville  after having a bone chip removed from his knee.

Gytrash was a nostril from winning the Goodwood last year when going down in the last strides to Godolphin trained Trekking.and is looking to add to his impressive first up form in his first start for 6 months. 

An ultra consistent competitor Gytrash has missed a place just once in 22 starts and more so has 4 wins and 2 placings from 6 first up runs. It will be the first time the 5 year old is set to compete first up over 6 furlongs but it doesn’t appear to concern Richards.

"He's in great condition," trainer Gordon Richards told RSN. 

"We gave him six months break to get over it (the surgery) and now he's back, ready to fire up again.

"He's done well fresh ... but they've always been in shorter races. The 1200m first-up in a Group One just might be the bugbear.

"But having said that, if you draw a line through his last two first-up runs, which were the Lightning and then the Concord, he hit the line strong, especially the Concord,, they went within a whisker of the course record on a slow track."

It won’t be an easy run for Gytrash who will compete against a field of 10 rivals that include multiple Group 1 winner Behemoth and rising stars Beau Rossa and Instant Celebrity.

Richards believed Gytrash was in a good spot though to bounce straight into the finish with 58.5kgs to carry. 

"It's going to be a great race, but we do get in well on the weights," he said. 

The Goodwood is set to be Gytrash’s solo run this campaign and the punters are jumping on having opened at $4 before getting backing into $3.60 favourite ahead of a drifting Behemoth at $3.80.
