Australian Racing - Racing: Mazu on course for Doomben bid

The much-fancied  Mazu is reported to be in top shape as connections step up his preparations for next Saturday’s Doomben 10,000.

Trainers Peter and Paul Snowden stated their intention to target the Group 1 contest with Mazu after the exciting sprinter extended his winning run to six in the Group 2 Arrowfield Sprint at Randwick last month and he is rated at 8/5 to keep that sequence going next weekend.

Mazu in fine fettle for Snowdens

The three-year-old warmed up for his next assignment with a win in a barrier trial last week and connections report him to have come out of that in fine shape.

"It was a nice tick-over trial. It wasn't a hard one, just enough to get him back into stride," Peter Snowden said.

"Pre-trial he was really good, very relaxed, which is always a good sign for him. The more relaxed he is, the better he goes. He's on track."

Mazu and stablemate Signore Fox - who will also line up in the 10,000 - will travel to Brisbane on Wednesday.

Wet weather not an issue

Wet weather is forecast in south east Queensland next week and, while Signore Fox - who can be backed at 33/1 - is better on top of the ground, rain-affected conditions will be no concern for Mazu, who is unbeaten in three starts on heavy tracks.

"He's one horse you don't have to worry about anything like that," Snowden continued. "Wet or dry, he's like (dual The Everest winner) Redzel, he goes just the same."
