Anthony Freedman believes time and maturity has been the key to Bedford stringing successive victories together at Caulfield.
The four-year-old was successful at the midweek meeting at the track on January 17 and on Saturday added the Mal Seccull Handicap (2000m) to his record.
Sent off the $2.05 favourite under Damian Lane, Bedford ran out a half-neck winner over O’Lonera ($17), with Archery Peak ($51) 1-1/4 lengths away third.
Bedford had his 12th race start on Saturday, registering his fourth win.
“He’s a horse that wasn’t going anywhere six months ago so he’s probably matured a bit and is now starting to put together a nice record,” Freedman said.
“He might even be better in another six months as there’s not much of him and he might strengthen up a bit.
“Maybe he can go to the Mornington Cup if he continues with his form.
“Its worth $300,000 and it’s around the corner from home.
“I think the 2400 metres would suit him but I’d be guided by what Damian has to say.”
