Glamour Sydney mare More Joyous may be favoured to give Gai Waterhouse a record-equalling seven Group One Doncaster Miles at Randwick but trainer Norm Hilton hopes to spoil the party with Bold Glance.

Bold Glance will be striving to become the first Queenslander to win Saturday’s 1600-metre feature since Dalrello who was prepared by the late Hall Of Fame trainer Jim Atkins when successful in 1975.

Like Dalrello and Bold Glance, fellow Toowoomba sprinter Captain Sonador will also carry the hopes of Queenslanders in the Doncaster.

“I hope we can do it,” Hilton said of his bid to equal Atkins’ feat.

“I can’t put myself on the same stage as Jim but it would be unreal to win the Doncaster like Jim did with Dalrello.

“Mr Atkins used to give me advice whenever I asked him.”

Bold Glance, who drew perfectly in barrier three, embarked on his Doncaster Mile campaign after winning the Magic Millions Cup at the Gold Coast in January.

Realistically, Hilton had serious reservations Bold Glance would qualify for the Doncaster Mile and pinned his hopes on gaining a start by winning the Group One George Ryder Stakes at Rosehill.

However, Bold Glance’s hopes of sneaking into the Doncaster looked forlorn when he dumped jockey Scott Seamer and was a late scratching from the George Ryder.

Fortunately, Hilton persevered after learning of the large Doncaster attrition rate and was delighted with the gelding’s close third to My Kingdom Of Fife in the Doncaster Prelude at Randwick on Saturday.

“I thought it was a big run in the Prelude,” Hilton said.

“It didn’t surprise me and I reckon he would have won with a decent alley.

“He jumped well and then settled back but then got shunted four wide and never got in again.”

Hilton can’t fault Bold Glance’s progress since his Doncaster Prelude effort.

“He’s 100 per cent and has pulled up magnificently,” he said.

“He was that well he could have run again on Sunday.”

Hilton has only been training seriously for the past four years after a 25-year career on the Australian rodeo circuit.

Bold Glance gave Hilton his first winner on a metropolitan track at Eagle Farm in 2009 and his first black-type winner when he claimed the Listed Queensland Day Plate (1400m) at Eagle Farm the same year.

Hilton, who was also a pre-trainer and breaker before deciding to train, was the Australian champion bull rider in 1984.
