Serious winning chance
16 Feb 2017

Talented four-year-old mare Serious Satire  (More Than Ready x Zarzuela) looks a winning chance for trainer Stephen Marsh at Ellerslie on Saturday.

The Cambridge conditioner believes give in the ground will be a positive for the mare as she drops back from a Group One event to the Benchmark 75 Macular Degeneration NZ 1600.

“I really liked her run in the Thorndon Mile for fifth and she has trained on well since,” Marsh said.

“She’s drawn out a bit and does have to carry a fair bit of weight [58.5 kilos], but I think she will be right in the finish.”

Serious Satire has won three of her 10 career starts, including the Gr.3 Hawke’s Bay Breeders’ Gold Trail Stakes as a three-year-old.  -nz racing desk
