MORNINGTON - Race 3

#10 THAT CONTAGEOUS (15) - M Laurie

THAT CONTAGEOUS has now won three jump outs and looks primed to make a winning return to the races, potentially now as a gelding. He debuted as a 2yo behind Artorius, where he finished 7th beaten by 7.15L and immediately spelled. He’s return to win a jump out on Oct 13 ahead of subsequent 3.5L maiden winner Unflinching before winning a jump out on Oct 27 and then again in Heat 8 on Nov 3 where he was way too speedy when leading throughout and really strung the field out. He clocked nice time in the process too and was still extending away past the line. Some impressive bits of work and we think he can make a nice return to the races on the back of these.

#14 THE BALLET DANCER looks to have a nice turn of foot and has shown it in a couple of jump outs now. She sat on speed in her Oct 15 jump out, similar to her work her in Heat 12 on Nov 1, extending away late as she was asked for an effort and really putting the field away quite comfortably. Liked the turn of foot and think she's one worth
