Australian Racing - Racing: Atkins aim for Resonator

Resonator put himself in the mix for a trip to the Brisbane winter carnival after making it two wins from his three starts to date with a victory at Gosford on Saturday.

The two-year-old showed good speed out of the gates under Tim Clark before digging deep to see off the challenge of Zou Tiger by a long neck in a handicap over 1200 metres.

Brisbane target

That victory has earned him a quote of 12/1 for next month's J.J. Atkins Plate in the process, as connections eye a potential tilt at Group 1 honours.

"I think a good Queensland campaign beckons for him now (after) two promising wins," Clark said of the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained juvenile.

"We could have gone another furlong there and the second horse was never going to get past him. He was always going to hold it.

"He just feels terrific in himself at the moment too. He's in a really good space at the moment so onwards and upwards."
