Superhard to return at Flemington

John Sadler is looking to train his third Standish Handicap (Gr 3, 1200m) winner with
sprinter Superhard (All Too Hard) who will get another look at the Flemington straight in the
lead-up.

Superhard is among 18 nominations for an 1100 metre-sprint on Saturday which will be the gelding’s final run ahead of the Group 3 on New Year’s Day.
“He had his final gallop on Saturday and he’s come through that well so he won’t do a great deal of work for the rest of the week,” Sadler said. “He’s in good
form and he ran well first-up, but there was nothing else around for him to run in unless
we waited for this race. That was another three weeks he would have needed to wait, but he
was ready to go so we gave him the race. He’s had a good chance to get over that run and of
course his form down the straight is OK. If he can return to the form when he won first-up
for me, he’d be a real chance.”
