10/7/2019  Hickman ready to strike in Ramornie  

Trainer Greg Hickman feels he has a live chance in today’s Ramornie Handicap (Listed, 1200m) in the shape of in-form sprinter Top Striker (High Chaparral). The gelding, a winner of two of his five starts this preparation, arrives off a last-start win as a $41 outsider on a heavy 9 track at Rosehill on June 29. "He's been racing very well this time in, and he handles all track conditions. It looks like we'll strike a heavy track on Wednesday and that won't be a problem for him," Hickman told Racing NSW. "The Ramornie's always been on the agenda for him. He's drawn well enough, but you still need all the stars to align and everything to go right in these feature races. I think he'll run very well."
In early betting markets Top Striker is $7.50. Check out the latest Ramornie betting market.
