A set of winkers could help consistent gelding Darci Be Good break the stranglehold of Volkhere and Hi Son in Queensland metropolitan distance races.

Volkhere and Hi Son have run the quinella in four open company staying races since the start of the new season with the score at two apiece.

However, Darci Be Good has gradually been working up to a win over the pair and the three will clash in Saturday’s 2200m race at the Gold Coast.

Formerly trained in NSW by Bede Murray, Darci Be Good has had four starts for Caloundra trainer Andrew Williamson for three thirds and a fourth.

Williamson pointed out that rival trainers Rob Heathcote (Volkhere) and Tony Gollan (Hi Son) had used claiming apprentices in their races.

However, Williamson decided to use use senior riders, in particular Group One jockey Damian Browne, on Darci Be Good.

“I admit that I am still trying to sort out where this horse sits in Queensland racing,” Williamson said.

“The jury is still out whether he is a stayer or a miler. Damian has been a big help with the process.”

“He rode Darci Be Good last start and he said it would be worth our while to try him at the 2200 metres on Saturday.”

Williamson said Browne, who rides him on Saturday, had also recommended he try winkers on Darci Be Good.

“Eddie Wilkinson worked him on Tuesday in winkers and he went very well. Maybe it will be our turn on Saturday.”

“I got this horse in great fettle from Bede and we have had a lot of fun with him already.”

Gold Coast apprentice Rikki Jamieson will be reunited with Hi Son on Saturday.

Jamieson won four races on Hi Son when he was trained by David Kelly but new trainer Tony Gollan has used Luke Tarrant and Tegan Harrison in recent starts.

Matthew McGuran replaces fellow apprentice Bridget Grylls on Volkhere.
