1/12/2020 Gear changes for Isotope
Enigmatic filly Isotope (Deep Field) will sport a barrier blanket, blinkers and a browband for Saturday’s Mode Plate (Listed, 1200m) as Tony Gollan tries to rectify her barrier issues. The three-year-old was fractious first-up, missing the start badly before charging home for second, and her trainer sent her to the Beaudesert trials with that raft of gear changes in a bid to improve her manners. "Kevin Thomas did a great job with her out at Washpool Lodge and gave me a lot of advice to follow, which we did," Gollan said. "That was the idea of going there to help her with the barriers and she was perfect. She had a hell of a lot of different gear on her but she did everything right and trialled in second gear." Also among the entries is J J Atkins (Gr 1, 1400m) runner-up Gotta Kiss (Not A Single Doubt) and stakes winners Macroura (Snitzel) and Plutocrat (Rich Enuff).
