NEASHAM HAPPY WITH WISDOM OF WATER

It’s been a turbulent career for the much travelled Wisdom of Water however the speedsters latest trainer, Annabel Neasham, believes taking the 4 year old down to Victoria could be the trick that takes the stallion to the next level.

Annabel Neasham is the third trainer of Wisdom of Water’s short career having won 3 of 6 starts on the Gold Coast for the stable of Toby and Trent Edmonds before he underperformed badly in two runs for the Mick Price and Michael Kent Jr stables last spring.

Neasham seems to have had a positive impact on the 4 year olds training having managed 3 placed finishes in 5 runs for the up and coming stable.

Wisdom of Water was originally listed for the Group 2 Challenge Stakes in Sydney but instead he will now head to Melbourne and contest the McEwen Stakes over 1000m at the Valley.

The stable and the runner are set to be tested with Wisdom of Water having never run at Moonee Valley and he hasn’t competed over 1000m since his debut in 2019. Add to that the upcoming weather forecast and it is set to the test the limits of the Neasham runner.

“He’s never gone left-handed because the two runs he had in Melbourne were down the straight.” Neasham said.

“If the rain arrives that they’re expecting, a heavy track would be an unknown as well, but we were keen to give him a go.”

Due to the ongoing Covid Pandemic Neasham has been unable to send any staff with Wisdom of Water.

“He’s got a few tricks. You wouldn’t want to play poker against him because he’d beat you, but he’s mellowed since he’s been with us,” Neasham said.

“He can worry so that makes him a bit quirky. It’s more so in the mornings because he has to go out to work with a mate.

“I can’t send any staff down there to be with him in the new environment at the moment and that’s partly why I sent him down to Nick Ryan’s stable, because he’s such a good horseman.

“He’s not straightforward but he’s talented and all those talented horses have their quirks.”

TAB currently has Wisdom of Water as an $11 chance for the McEwen Stakes on Saturday.
