Treble for Gwenda Markwell Racing at Kembla Grange Racecourse Promising three-year-old Angel Of Truth capped off another winning treble for leading trainer Gwenda Markwell at Kembla Grange on Saturday afternoon. Markwell's son of Animal Kingdom was first-up over a mile, but highlighted his credentials as a potential Derby prospect in the coming months to complete a hat-trick of wins at his home track. Angel Of Truth, ridden by Chad Lever, stormed clear late in the Shane Eades Transport Class 2 Handicap (1600m) to beat Fastnet Cyclone by 1-3/4 lengths, with Kerry Parker's a further 2-1/4 lengths away in third. “You certainly don’t see horses win three straight do you,” Markwell said."He had 59kgs and was first up over 1600m as a three year-old. He has a lot of upside. He was very, very well today." Earlier, Chicadilly made it back-to-back victories with another strong display on her home track.Jockey Keagan Latham settled just off the speed before pouncing in the straight to race 1-1/4 lengths clear of Captain Courageous in the the AJ Bert Lillye Lounge Benchmark 64 Handicap (1000m). Destiny's Reward was a further two lengths back in third. Markwell felt their was a lot to like about the display, but believes Chicadilly's best is stil ahead of her. "I think she is still a preparation away mentally. She still does a bit wrong," she said "She is going good now and I think she will get over a bit further." Markwell's old warhorse Captain Manering ensured the stable had plenty to cheer about and also provided Keagan Latham with a double. Backing up from Tuesday's meeting at the Illawarra Turf Club, the Dane Shadow eight-year-old used his fitness advantage to wear down Grand Finalist over the final furlong and claim the Carrin Di Milia Benchmark 64 Handicap (1500m). Six of Captain Manering's seven career victories have now come at his home track of Kembla Grange. Sydney trainer John O'Shea also had a winning double with Foxpack (race two) and Carambola (race four) both returning to the winner's stall. Anthony Cummings, Bryce Heys and David Pfieffer also had success. Image : Bradley_Photos Chicadilly ... See more
