Gold Coast Stable Has Five In Murwillumbah Cup

Liberty Island, a cast-off from Sydney’s biggest stable, will be strongly favoured to win Friday’s $38,000 Murwillumbah Cup.

Liberty Island is now prepared on the Gold Coast by Bruce Hill after he took over the training of the horse from Chris Waller.

The six-year-old has raced 14 times for Hill winning twice and filling placings on three occasions.


Last time out Liberty Island Horseform fought on gamely to win a C5 event over 1650m at Doomben on August 16.

“He’s flying at the moment,” Hill declared. “He’s in form and the 1530 metres at Murwillumbah will suit him.”

Hill has five acceptors for the Riverview Hotel Murwilumbah Cup (1530m).

He plans to start topweight Bodega Negra Horseform after he raced at Doomben last weekend.

“I will be backing him up at Murwillumbah – he’s loves being backed up in a short space of time,” Hill said.

Another of Hill’s Murwillumbah Cup acceptors is Montrer Dame Horseform, a mare that has had just one run since July 15 finishing fourth at Arena Salon on the Gold Coast over 1400m.

“She had a short break as she had a bung eye. Her run the other day was good and she will be very competitive,”he said.

Hill also has Toronto Flyer Horseform and Winning Accord Horseform in the field.

Hill said Media Maid Horseform will be his only representative in the other feature event, the $28,000 Tursa Employment & Training Murwillumbah Newmarket (1200m).

The mare has only had one run since January, finishing seventh to Life’s Like That on the Gold Coast (900m).

“Her first-up run was very good and she has improved since,” Hill said.
