Scott230After a number of frustrating placings on the provincial circuit trainer Scott Singleton decided to send his 3yo Trial Ground to the country track at Bathurst for an easy kill and a boost of confidence.

Sent out the $2.30 favourite Trial Ground didn't let the punters or his owners down by jumping straight to the lead before jockey Jay Ford released the brakes and ran away for a convincing 2.3 length win over 2nd - Oscar Tosca and 3rd - Grey Pariz in the RURAL PRESS LIMITED CG&E MAIDEN HANDICAP over 1100mt.


Trial Ground was named after the famous UK gallops with the same name of legendary trainer Roger Charlton who was the trainer of Trade Fair the sire of Trial Ground, another notable horse that is locally known is the former Woodlands stallion Quest for Fame that Roger trained to win the Group 1 Epsom Derby.

Scott will now set Trial Ground for a repeat dose at the country tracks in the coming weeks before sending the gelding for a spell.
