Wayne Webster reckons the ingredients are right for Thankgodyou’rehere to break a 10-month winning drought at Rosehill on Saturday.

The gelding will step out in the Group Three Bill Ritchie Handicap (1400m) in search of his first win since the Hawkesbury Gold Cup (1600m) in November.

His six starts since have yielded three placings, the most recent a game third behind Epsom Handicap joint favourites Sincero and Secret Admirer in the Tramway Handicap (1400m).

“For sure, this is the most winnable race he has been in for a while,” Webster said.

“A fortnight ago it took two Group One winners to beat him and he was beaten by two better horses who were too good for him on the day.

“But he beat the fourth horse and the rest of the field quite easily.

“He’s gone well since his last run and I’m very happy with him.”

Thankgodyou’rehere has drawn double figure barriers at four of his past five runs but has the rails draw on Saturday.

For Webster, it’s a case of out of the frying pan and into the fire.

“Beggars can’t be choosers but I would have liked four, five or six,” Webster said.

“He’s such a big-striding horse.”

The Bill Ritchie (1400m) is a springboard into the Epsom Handicap (1600m) at Randwick on October 1 although surprisingly, no horse has won the double.

Captain Sonodor was third in the Bill Ritchie last year and went on to win the Epsom and Webster confirmed Thankgodyou’rehere was headed toward the Group One provided he pulled up well from Saturday’s assignment.

Triple Elegance has been scratched from the Bill Ritchie in preference for the Group One George Main Stakes (1500m).

Joe Pride will have two runners, impressive last start winner Tom’s Rocket and 2010 Queensland Oaks winner Miss Keepsake.
