Group Three RIP John Stollery Christmas Gift Preview

This Saturday night the Group Three RIP John Stollery Christmas Gift will be run and won at Wentworth Park with a juicy $25,000 to winning connections.

Double Twist will start favourite after a most-impressive performance from the same box last week. After chasing down early leader Peter Rocket, she clocked 29.74, easily the best time of the four heats conducted.

With so much early speed in this final, the first turn won’t be a place for the faint-heated, with so many races won within the first five seconds.

This highly-anticipated final will jump at 10.00pm EDST.

Trainer Comments: “She pulled up fantastic after last Saturday, but I would like to see her not give these types of dogs too much start because it’s very hard to come from behind. I can’t fault her performances of late but she will need some luck from the draw.”
