In Canberra Rocket Tiger by rising star Victorian Sire Cluster is looking to secure his Golden Slipper spot in the Black Opal Group 2.
Following a good win on debut at Canberra, Spackman had a high enough opinion of the gelding that he took him straight to town winning the Boxing Day Plate at Royal Randwick. The Cluster progeny was then an unlucky second to Home Affairs in the Group 2 Silver Slipper at Rosehill when getting boxed in for most of the straight.
“He should’ve beat Home Affairs home I reckon,” Spackman said.
“Hughie (Bowman) was playing jockeys on Paulele, as they do, and was holding us in.
“Kathy (O’Hara) pushed her way out and when she went for him to get chasing Home Affairs the little fella wanted to push out again.
“When he realised I’ve got to get out after that one he balanced up pretty quick. If he didn’t wander about the second time he would’ve had him covered.”
