Royal Symphony bids to extend run
Royal Symphony is ready to put his perfect record on the line when he returns to racing at Flemington this weekend.
With Dwayne Dunn in the saddle, the unbeaten colt enjoyed a gallop over 1200m in between races at Moonee Valley on Saturday afternoon, and afterwards Dunn declared himself satisfied.
We'd like to keep him unbeaten if we can but he's still got plenty of improvement going into the race at Flemington.Dwayne Dunn
"We're still a long way away from his grand final but he got around here fine and looking forward to getting him back to the races next Saturday," Dunn said.
"I don't ride him trackwork so it's a bit harder for me to get an idea of if it's good work or bad work - I only see him on race day when he's at full throttle so it's hard to line him up."
Royal Symphony will resume in the Listed Exford Plate over 1400m at Flemington and although Dunn says there is plenty of improvement in him heading into the race, he is hopeful he will stay unbeaten.
"He's not one of those horses that just bowls up to them on the bridle and you're swinging past them," Dunn added.
"You think he's not doing a lot but when you give him a proper slap he finds for you. We'd like to keep him unbeaten if we can but he's still got plenty of improvement going into the race at Flemington."
Meanwhile, Menari is 7/5 to win the Golden Rose back at Rosehill Gardens on 23rd September, while Pariah is priced at 5/1.
