Peters Investments-backed gelding Killarney has a great opportunity to secure his first career victory in Thursday’s Tabtouch — Better Your Bet Handicap (2025m) at the Bunbury Turf Club. The four-year-old, trained by Takahide Ikenushi, has placed in three of his five career starts and has been around the mark during his present preparation. Despite it being his first attempt at a staying distance, the gelding has once again drawn well. A strong start out of the gates will be crucial however, following his most recent start on November 7. Bunbury hoop Kyra Yuill was parked at the rear of the field for lengthy stages aboard the four-year-old, following a slow start. She did however entice Killarney to fire on all cylinders in the home straight, resulting in a fifth-placed finish to Henry Has Spoken. Punters are likely to forgive him for his start, as the closing speed likely left a lasting impression. Another runner to consider is Paul Roberts’ stalwart The Roan Ranger, who is running second-up and is a genuine place chance. Earlier in the day, Boyanup trainer Michael Lane will unleash his three-year-old Good Measure for the first time in the Country Comfort Perth - Racy Weekend Getaway Maiden (1211m). Although Lane’s gelding will be making his debut, both of his trials have been impressive and are likely to be reflected in the market. First race is at 1.12pm.
