Tasmania: Seydoux super as Adam doubles up
By Adam Williams, May 9, 2024 - 8:44 AM

Adam Trinder and John Blacker shared training honours at Devonport last Sunday with each producing a pair of winners.
Trinder was first on the board with sparingly raced three-year-old Thoros Of Myr taking the Class 1 handicap over 1009 metres first up off a lengthy break.
The Frosted gelding tracked leader Bluff Point throughout under Erica Byrne Burke before proving too strong in the run to the line.
The win completed a running double for Byrne Burke, who also took the maiden/Class 1 handicap over 1650 metres with the Team Wells-prepared Flight Ready.
Trinder’s second win came via his in-form mare Seydoux, who led throughout under 3kg claimer Lauryn Bingley in the benchmark 72 handicap over 1150 metres.
The daughter of Xtravagant has now won four of her past five outings and was only narrowly denied by her smart stablemate Jaguar Stone on the other occasion.
Blacker combined with stable apprentice Jackson Radley for both of his wins, kicking off with honest Magnus gelding Power Magnum, who enjoyed a nice trail just off the speed before taking the benchmark 60 handicap over 1150 metres.
Blacker’s charge has won just four of his 34 appearances but has placed on other 12 occasions and has a liking for the synthetic, with all four wins coming on that surface.
His stablemate Alpine Blast also has an affinity for synthetic and notched his sixth win at Devonport when taking the benchmark 60 handicap over 1350 metres after enjoying a box-seat trail.
Stevo’s are overs
Leading trainer Glenn Stevenson takes two of his best performed gallopers from the Tasmanian summer carnival to Caulfield this Saturday.
Stone Cold Stunner was a four-start maiden when joining his team from the Ciaron Maher and David Eustace stable but has notched seven wins from 11 outings for Stevenson and proved competitive in the Group 3 Vamos Stakes.
The daughter of Palentino has drawn kindly in gate four in the Rod Griffiths Handicap for fillies and mares over 1400 metres and looks over the odds at the current quote of $17.
Her stablemate First Accused tackles the Selangor Turf Club Handicap over the same trip but hasn’t drawn as well in gate 10 of 12.
The gelded son of Turffontein placed at the highest local level on numerous occasions in the care of Scott Brunton but went to another level in his first campaign for Stevenson with black-type wins in the TTC Newmarket and the Tasmanian Stakes.
He too looks a better chance than the $19 currently on offer.
