After two below par performances, Grandslam in ready to burst back into winning form

Not all horses can go on Winx like winnings streaks, but then again there are a large group that don’t break of restricted grade.

As the winner of a Group 2 race, expectations for the Ciaron Maher and David Eustace-trainedĀ GrandslamĀ have always been high.

GrandslamĀ won the Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) at The Valley by 6-Ā¼ lengths relegating handy stayers Young WertherĀ and Explosive JackĀ into the minor money.

After two moderate performances as a well-fancied commodity,Ā GrandslamĀ returns to Caulfield on Saturday to run in theĀ NedsĀ Whatever You BetĀ OnĀ Handicap (2000m).

That course and distance was the scene ofĀ Grandslam’sĀ most recent victory when he ran away to a 5-Ā½ length win in the VOBIS Gold Heath (2000m) in April.

GrandslamĀ followed that with a well-beaten fifth in the Listed Warrnambool Cup (2350m) on May 5 before finishing fifth to No EffortĀ over Saturday’s course and distance on May 28.

Eustace saidĀ GrandslamĀ did not handle the heavy conditions at Warrnambool while last start he was slow into stride and could not take up his favoured leading role.

“He is pretty one dimensional and we’ll let him stride however he jumps this time around while the more it dries out, the better for him,” Eustace told RSN.

“He looks terrific, and his work has been good, but he’s had a messy prep since his win at Caulfield. Warrnambool just didn’t work out as all.

“He’s a good work horse and he’s holding his weight well and we expect him to run a big race.”

Eustace said Saturday’s performance would guide the stable as to where they head withĀ GrandslamĀ in the months ahead.

He said options may include some better class staying races during the spring, or he may be put aside for a tilt at the Magic Millions Subzero (2200m) at the Gold Coast in January.
