Trainer Brett Jaffray believes his charge Seventhreeohseven has what it takes to be in the mix when she contests the CUB Allen Williams Memorial Final on Sunday.
Seventhreeohseven is finally starting to show her potential after missing her three-year-old season and Jaffray believes the lengthy break did her the world of good.
Now a four-year-old, Seventhreeohseven is looking more like the real deal and Jaffray has no complaints as his charge gives her all every race.
“We gave her a few runs as a two-year-old, but she was a bit little and wasn’t strong, so we turned her out for 12 months. I took her back to Michael Lefevre’s at Pyengana up in the cattle country, and she has been very consistent this time in,” Jaffray said.
“She is no world beater, but she tries, and that is the best thing about her,”
Seventhreeohseven has had a solid start to the season when picking up three placings from her six starts and Jaffray thinks she can be in the mix again.
The barrier draw has been kind as she will start on the second row and there is also plenty of inexperience in the field.
“She will be competitive again. I don’t think it is a bad draw (on the second row), she will follow through, and she will get her chance,” Jaffray added.
“I know she hasn’t won, but she has a run a few good races at Mowbray. She was third in the Jane Ellen a few starts ago and that was a reasonable run.
“The best part about Sunday is they are all maidens except for the heat winners. She has been racing horses that have won 21 races, and that sort of thing."
