I do not want to be a party pooper and I could be talking through my pocket but I thought he was rather lacklustre.

Thanks to CG for the detailed explanation on Andrea’s last start failure at Gawler.

Well if he is pressing on for another start this winter, there’s a 3200m hurdle worth $45,000 on at Morphettville next weekend. I’m not expecting noms to be that strong, so it might be a race to think about. He’s done pretty well on 3 previous trips to Morphettville with a win & 2 placings from 3 starts.

All things being equal the fact he over-raced last start wasn't a real good sign.

Guess we'll all know a bit more next time around.

You’re welcome.
I’m only a minor entry in a syndicate so don’t have much say.
I’ve been extremely happy with RTD and Archie so will trust their decision.

For those that are interested. The post race report below:

What a frustrating race to watch for owners of big Magna who made the trip to Gawler to contest another hurdle race last Saturday. With winkers added to get him to focus more on his racing. he jumped well from the barrier and settled into third spot just as the leaders dropped anchor, and he fired up immediately. Unfortuanately the pace was horrible for a lap and a half, and Magna pulled all the way. Jockey Richard Cully should have given him his head and allowed him to bowl along in front. Instead he chose to fight him for 2000m, and no horse can finish a race off after doing that much work in the run. He did however work to the line well under the circumstances to finish fourth. The horse has pulled up remarkably well and we will plan to take the winkers off and change jockeys before finding him another jumps race before the end of the season.

Well I’m on Andrea today. Surprised he’s third in the market, thought he’d be fave.

Robbies Star generally needs super heavy track to show his best, whilst I don’t think the form behind You’ll Dash For Cash is very strong.

I reckon AM is well placed. Give him strength 🤞

He still overraces rather fiercely.
Only just missed.

He tries so hard, decided to send him for a well deserved spell. See below stable report:

It was another huge effort by big Magna on Saturday in Adelaide to only just miss again for a second. Ridden much more positively by Tom Ryan the horse was a little keen early and he was allowed to stride along and went to the lead. Coming to the final two hurdles a win looked likely. Unfortunately he just hit the last hurdle at pace and lost a little momentum, and the horse inside him snuck up for a win by the barest of margins. His current preparation has ticked over 12 months and we now feel it's time to give him a well earned spell. He will have a good three to four month break now and be prepared for the Warrnambool carnival next season.

Handy hurdler resuming tonight at MV over 1600m.

Has changed stables from Archie Alexander to Paul Preuesker. Can’t recall Paul having many jumpers over the years.

Hopefully part-owner Crooked Gambler is still around & can give us some insight on reason for the stable change.

Hey everyone.
The big fella is tracking up well for his target of the May Carnival at Warrnambool.
Will definitely need a few flat races to build up some fitness before he hits the hurdle trials

The crew felt as though Pauls facilities would be better suited to the horse, lots of swimming and sand work.

He has thrived in the country air but he is just going for a night out tonight.

Another tidy run by your boy today Crooked Gambler - 3rd in the Wang Cup.

He might be able to pick up a flat race before he goes jumping again.

Magna pulled up with a couple of little issues at Warrnambool so he has gone down to Kel Bourke at Geelong who has been training him on the beach

He is having a spin around today to see if we can get his prep back on the right track

Will be looking to see him making late ground

Good run today CG 👍.

Kelvin Bourke is a wily old trainer. Gun jumps jockey in the 70’s. He used to train heaps of jumpers in the 80’s & 90’s but haven’t seen him with one for many years. Hope your boy can put him back in the jumps racing winners circle.

Terrific run again today.

Hope CG had some loose change on him for the place.

Thanks LH. Very happy with Magna today. He is always so honest. The plan is to target some of those 2400+ races in Adelaide, today was a good start.

Just a little update on Magna, he’s had another change of trainers . So many I’ve lost count LOL

Unfortunately because of the whole border shutdown and our intention of targeting a couple of those weaker Adelaide staying races we have had to transfer him to an Adelaide trainer.

We have been lucky enough to find a beach set up with David Jolly so he will be staying with David until he comes back to Victoria

Glad to see he'll be in a beach environment at Goolwa (I assume?) & no doubt you are too. He won't be losing anything thru' the trainer switch anyway. BOL cg & thanks Thumbs Up
The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything, it's too late to stop reading it.
