Hawkesbury Trainers Top The Century

Craig Weeding and Terry Croft lifted the tally of Hawkesbury-trained winners to 102 with a pair of victories at Mudgee on Sunday.

For good measure Hawkesbury apprentice Qin Ying notched his 10th Australian success by scoring on the Croft-trained No Escape.

Croft has another country target in mind for No Escape Horseform, who clinched the fifth win of his 24-start career in the Alfabs Cup (1400m).


The five-year-old is being aimed at the $30,000 Forbes Cup (1600m) on August 6. No Escape won a Class 1 at the same meeting last year.

Qin Yong’s 3kg claim proved invaluable at Mudgee as No Escape carried only 51.5kg and had a decisive 9.5kg advantage over the gallant runner-up All Summer Long Horseform.

Croft’s five-year-old is now unbeaten from two starts on the Mudgee track, having also scored over 1400m there on May 19.

Young Hawkesbury trainer Weeding is doing a splendid job with Chekkapen Horseform who made it two wins from his last three starts by landing a BM 54 (1600m) at Mudgee.

Ridden by 2kg claimer Jamie Gibbons, the four-year-old won a 1300m maiden at Bathurst on June 3 before finishing a close second in a 1450m at Quirindi on June 23.
