Jul 3 2020 Bott holds high hopes for Mr Dependable

Adrian Bott is confident the stable has found the right race for Mr Dependable (Reliable Man) who chases a first win of the preparation in tomorrow’s Quincy Seltzer Handicap (1800m) at Randwick. Bott and co-trainer Gai Waterhouse accepted for the four-year-old in two races but have decided on the 1800-metre event. "We're trying to teach him to stay and get the miles into his legs so it's a nice stepping stone and the weight relief was a big part in that as well," Bott said. "He couldn't have been more impressive first-up under unsuitable conditions and last start he was very brave, he just bumped into a horse that was in-form and had a bit more match fitness. If he can take that same level of improvement into his thirdup run, hopefully now is his chance to break through this preparation."
