1/12/2020 Trap For Fools wins trial before Group 1

A comfortable trial win at Lark Hill yesterday has Perth native Trap For Fools (Poet’s Voice) set for the Kingston Town Stakes (Gr 1, 1800m) on Saturday. The Lindsey Smith-trained Trap For Fools, winner of the 2018 Mackinnon Stakes (Gr 1, 2000m) at Flemington, contested the Kingston Town that same year, finishing sixth to Arcadia Queen (Pierro). This time around, he returns to Perth after midfield efforts in the Underwood Stakes (Gr 1, 1800m), Cranbourne Cup (Listed, 2025m) and Moonee Valley Cup (Gr 2, 2500m). However, his trial win with Peter Hall in the saddle yesterday, in which he had almost three lengths on Red Army (Patronize), suggests he is capable of figuring in Saturday’s feature. “He felt really good, he felt like a young horse out there and I was quietly surprised,” Hall said. “He felt really good in his action. It was good to have a feel of him today, I haven’t ridden him for a little while. Group 1 races are always tough but he’s a good old horse and he still feels like he wants to be out there.” The Kingston Town will mark the first time in which Trap For Fools meets his stablemate and younger half-brother, Railway Stakes (Gr 1, 1600m) runner-up Too Close The Sun (Carlton House), on the racetrack. The barrier draw will be conducted tonight
