Warrior too classy

Jun 07, 2010

Warrior Within proved too classy for rivals when winning Murwillumbah Cup Prelude (1800m) on Sunday.

Backed from $8 to $4 the son of King Cugat settled near the tail before being sent around the field by Paul Hammersley at the 600m mark.

The brown gelding, loving the slow track, took the lead at the top of the straight and held off all challengers to win from Mr Gold Fire and Yummy.

It was his seventh win in 27 starts.

Bruce has three options for Warrior Within, - the Murwillumbah Cup, the Ipswich Cup or the Provincial Cup at Ipswich on Cup day.

"He has pulled up fine, and really has taken no ill-effect from the race," Bruce said.

"Best thing about him is that is he good on wet and dry ground."

The four-year-old is race by the Ascot Lodge Racing Syndicate, led by Les Cowell, the owner of the stable from where Bruce trains.

"Les has been great support to my stable," Bruce said.

"He helps you out when you need it."

Cowell said "It was a terrific training effort and the horse travelled wide down the side, it was a good run."

Cowell who owns about 20 or 30 horses was today looking at more with the possibility of adding.

More like tough nut Warrior Within, would surely be appreciated.
