Fox Hall's powerful finish

Talented Fox Hall will be aimed at Listed races during the spring carnival following an impressive victory at Cranbourne on Sunday, October 15.

A $4.80 chance, Fox Hall sprinted home strongly to win the Hertz Benchmark 78 Handicap (1400m) by 2-1/4 lengths from Red Is The Rose ($4.40) with Another Coldie ($7), 1-3/4 lengths away third.

Trainer Tony McEvoy said Fox Hall was already a Listed winner in Adelaide and believed the four-year-old was now ready to tackle Listed company in Melbourne.

“It will be tougher but I believe he is good enough,” McEvoy said.

“We need to get his rating up to be sure of a start so maybe I will have to look for another ratings race before stepping him up in class.

“He drew well today and Luke rode him beautifully sitting on the fence behind the pace.

“The leader gave a good kick on the home turn but I knew my horse would hit the line strongly and once Luke got him wound up Fox Hall finished powerfully – he was very strong late."

Currie said he had noticed the improvement in Fox Hall.

“When he was here as a younger horse he had ability but was still immature,” Currie said.

“The trip back to Adelaide and some racing there has seen him take his racing to a new level.

“His racing manner is good now and he has confidence. I think he can certainly win better races.”
