21/6/2018 Talented colt aiming for back-to-back wins

Gary Portelli has no qualms about sending Dio D'Oro (Medaglia d’Oro) out on a heavy track again after his last-start maiden win on similar ground at Randwick. Dio D'Oro won over 1,000 metres at his fourth start for Portelli and Darby Racing on June 9 and the two-year-old has recovered well from the testing run. "He certainly hasn't looked at any stage like he's gone backwards," Portelli said. "The only thing I'm concerned about is when horses put in such a big run first-up, their second up run can be disappointing."
