4/12/2018 Oliver on Trap For Fools

Damien Oliver has been booked to ride Trap For Fools (Poet’s Voice) in the Kingston Town Classic (Gr 1, 1800m) in Perth and will jump aboard the last-start Mackinnon Stakes (Gr 1, 2000m) winner in a track gallop before the Group 1 race. Jarrod McLean said that, while he expects the gelding to run well, he holds a huge amount of respect for last start WA Guineas (Gr 2, 1600m) winner Arcadia Queen (Pierro) and her stablemate Galaxy Star (Redoute’s Choice), who was last seen winning the Railway Stakes (Gr 1, 1600m). "I'm expecting him to run well but obviously Bob Peters had two emerging stars win last Saturday (week) and they're going to be very hard to beat," McLean said.

In early betting in the Kingston Town Classic Trap For Fools is $6. Check out the latest betting market.
