8/1/2019 Bowman called upon to ride The Fire Trap

Hugh Bowman has landed the ride on The Fire Trap (Sizzling) in the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas (RL, 1400m) having won on the gelding at Rosehill last year. The Fire Trap entered the Guineas picture after his strong-finishing fifth in the Vo Rogue Plate (Gr 3, 1350m) two weeks ago where he was galloped on behind on both legs, and trainer Matt Dunn will apply blinkers for the first time on Saturday. “We were able to treat it and luckily there was no serious damage to tendons," Dunn said. “For some reason he wanted to drop the bit at the 700 metres last time. Then he ran home strongly late. The blinkers should sharpen him up.”
