A solid track gallop at Caulfield on Saturday has booked Pressing his ticket to Queensland for the Brisbane Winter Carnival. The unbeaten Mick Price-trained youngster had a hitout with stablemate Jazz Song, who is also Brisbane-bound, and Price said they both showed an aptitude for right-handed going.

“They worked reverse (way) on a wet track on the inside grass yesterday and they were perfect,” Price said on RSN’s Correct Weight.

“You don’t need to do a lot, (they worked over) 1000 metres, home a really soft two (furlongs, 200m) just to see how they’d go reverse way and they were both perfect.”

Pressing and Jazz Song will fly out on Wednesday morning, bound for Tony Gollan’s Eagle Farm stable.

Jazz Song, runner-up to Miracles of Life in the Group 2 Sportingbet Classic (1200m) at her most recent outing, targets the fillies and mares sprints with Pressing heading to the two feature juvenile races.

First up is the $250,000 Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1350m) at Doomben on 24 May ahead of the $500,000 Group 1 J.J. Atkins Stakes (1600m) at Eagle Farm on 7 June.

“If he races well up there he’ll run in those two and have a break, but if he says that I’ve had enough then he’ll spell up there.”

Pressing, a son of Sebring, has started just twice for back-to-back wins at Caulfield, the latter the Listed Redoute’s Choice Stakes (1200m). (www.racingvictoria.net.au)
