Kris Lees trained Danish Twist will this weekend be looking to break a winless streak of 19 starts, the 6-year-old mare recording her last win in the listed June Stakes back in 2016, making it 4 on the trot.
Barring her current dry spell, the Dane Shadow mare still has 8 wins to her name from 34 starts, placing in a further 9. Certainly not lacking any class, Danish Twist has been placed 7 times in Group 1 company with a Group 3 victory to her name with plenty of starts at Group level to go with it.
Previous admirers will be hoping her luck returns when she lines up in the Group 3 Coolmore Dark Jewel Classic over 1400m at Scone, at the same track and distance in which she holds onto a 100% strike rate.
Danish Twist is in need of a serious turn around of form none-the-less, her last 5 reading 4 duck eggs and a minor placing in the Group 2 Breeders Classic at Warwick Farm.
Always impossible to write off as chance however, Danish Twist possesses a wicked turn of foot and ability to win from anywhere, in fact her sectionals and splits as good as any at her best in which she was lightning during her 2016 Autumn Campaign and winning this exact same race 2 years ago.
Danish Twist has drawn barrier 3 with Scone specialist Aaron Bullock to ride and is a current $14.00 shot with Sportsbet.com.au.
