Struggling to find a suitable 1000m maiden Dean and the team found themselves heading 400km NW to Warracknabeal with promising 3yo Rattle And Bang.While the journey was long Rattle And Bang made sure the return would be easier by taking out his Maiden in comfortable fashion running away by 2L slotting a handy time only 0.7 seconds outside the track record.

Dean was confident that Rattle And Bang would travel sweeter outside of horses and therefore notified stewards that his charge would be ridden quieter.But these plans went out the door when he jumped 1/2 L in front with apprentice Alana Kelly taking command of the race and skipping for home on the turn for an easy win.

Congratulations to the 3yo’s owners who with an ounce of luck can look to enjoy many more wins with the Unencumbered gelding.
