Australian Racing - Racing: Swiss Exile backed to head higher

Having broken his maiden status in a Group race last time out, connections of Swiss Exile believe the colt can go on and score at the highest level.

A tilt at next month's Group 1 JJ Atkins - for which he can be backed at 14/1 - is in the mix, but first the Annabel Neasham-trained juvenile will attempt to back up his breakthrough success in the Spirit Of Boom Classic in Saturday's Group 2 BRC Sires' Produce at Eagle Farm.

Pollard delighted with settled Swiss Exile

The five-time raced son of Pariah is rated as 11/2 to score again and Todd Pollard, assistant to Neasham, reports their charge to be in rude health

"He is a lovely colt and we have always known that he is better than what he had shown before he won," Pollard said.

“He has come through the Spirit Of Boom Classic run remarkably well; he has got into his feed and is doing better than he did before the run. He seems to have settled into the Queensland lifestyle and he is going really well."

After winning over 1200 metres in the soggy Eagle Farm conditions earlier this month, Pollard is hopeful Swiss Exile can run out the extra distances planned for the remainder of the winter period.

"He has a great constitution, he is a nice, big and solid horse and he is just going to keep furnishing," Pollard said. "It is great to see him now doing on the track what he has always shown us at home.

"The future is ahead of him, we are pretty excited to see him go on with it. Hopefully, he has a bit of confidence under his belt."
