BRUNTON HELA CONFIDENT ABOUT THE OAKS

Tasmanian trainer Scott Brunton is confident about the chances of his runner going into the Group 1 Australasian Oaks at Morphettville this weekend and he’s happy to tell people exactly what he thinks

Trainer Scott Brunton celebrating a win at Hobart

Brunton’s filly Hela lines up in South Australia on Saturday having won her last 7 races from as many starts and given her performances it is easy to see why she’s right in the betting for Saturday and her trainer thinks she has every chance. .

“Of the fillies I have had, she is the best by far,” he says.

“I think she is pretty smart and certainly wouldn’t be coming here if I didn’t think she could win,” Brunton said.

“How good she is, I don’t know?

“She is either better than we think or she is special. She is one of those horses, she has that turn of foot and when she gets away from them she idles.

“It‘s pretty exciting, when she has been under pressure a little bit she has drawn away from them.”

Hela has started odds on favourite in all her races across the Tasman and hasn’t looked like getting beaten to date including a Listed Grade win in the Strutt Stakes at Hobart.

Whilst confident Bruton know’s his runner will go to the next level to compete with the stable stars on the mainland.

“I am under no illusions that she has come up against previously are probably inferior to what she comes up against on Saturday,” he said.

“But she has beaten the older seasoned horses and I don‘t think you can disrespect that.

“A three-year-old filly racing these old horses can sometimes be a bit of an ask but she has done that on four occasions now.

“And when she won over the 2100m at Hobart, he rode her like he stole her and she broke the track record.

“I think the track has only been around for 12 or 18 months but it was no easy feat.”

Hela currently sits on the second line of betting for Saturday’s South Australian feature at $4.80 with Maher and Eustace trained runner Steinem current favourite at $4.50
