Storm Gust thrown into the Devonport Cup mix

Sep 12, 2016

SPREYTON trainer Adam Trinder is hoping his consistent five-year-old Storm Gust can measure up to some of the minor cups later this season given the way the gelding powered home to win a maiden-class one handicap over 1650 metres.

With Anthony Darmanin in the saddle, Storm Gust came from near last leaving the back straight to score a runaway win by two lengths from outsider Sh’Bourne Dylaca with Time Commands a long neck astern.

It was one of four winners for Darmanin who dominated the eight-race card on the Luxbet All-Weather.

He also saluted aboard Diamond Cutter and Concentrate for Whitemore trainer Graeme McCulloch and it was his expert handling of the Leanne Gaffney-trained Glistening Star that secured victory for that four-year-old mare.

Storm Gust settled towards the rear of the field, having been allowed by the rider to settle where he was comfortable.

When Darmanin stoked up the gelded son of Ladoni he unleashed a powerful sprint and left his rivals in his wake in the home straight to score by almost two lengths from Sh’bourne Dylaca (Kyle Maskiell) with Time Commands about a half-length astern.

His trainer Adam Trinder said he might be a Devonport Cup prospect and if so the gelding will join a long list of candidates for the $100,000 race to be run over 1880 metres on the Luxbet All-Weather on January 11.
