World Of Hope with Back-to-Back Wins - WATCH!
Feb 03, 2016
Promising filly WORLD OF HOPE made it two from three at Geelong on Sunday and arguably should be unbeaten from her three career starts. After a luckless debut second at Kyneton on December 22 the daughter of Spinning World headed to Sale for her second start in January, winning her maid impressively against what was a typically strong provincial maiden field.
With the temptation to head straight to town off the back of her maiden performance trainer Dean Binaisse opted to bypass Saturday's Flemington meeting in favour of the BM64 at Geelong instead.
'We had originally planned to go to Flemington, however that field of fillies came up like a Spring Group race so we decided against it'. Said Dean after Sunday's win.
Stepping out as an easing favourite over the 1130m on Sunday, World of Hope was ridden by regular rider Stephen Baster where she jumped from barrier 2 in the small but highly competitive field of 5. After a slightly awkward beginning Baster just let Hope settle in behind the speed as the heavily backed favourite went to the front an controlled the race. As the pressure went on from the 500m Baster let the filly slide forward under a good hold and she chimed in with plenty to offer as the straightened for home. From there it was just a matter of Stephen letting World of Hope down and she quickly reined in the leaders to career away for an impressive win.
'She (world of Hope) has a lot of ability this filly, I tried to talk Dean in to running her yesterday (Flemington). But he probably made the right call' Said Baster after the race.
'She is going to keep improving as she is still learning and still managing to win good quality races'.
World of Hope will now head to town for a likely run at Moonee Valley on Friday the 19th February.
