Dunn has mixed feelings about wet weather

Trainer Matt Dunn has mixed feelings about the forecast for further rain in Brisbane as he plots the campaigns of Quatronic and Snitz.

Quatronic returns from a injury hiccup in Saturday’s Class Six (1200m) while Snitz is set to tackle the Two-Year-Old (1050m) on the Doomben program.

At his most recent start Quatronic started a short-priced favourite but ran last behind Pinch River in a 1050m-open handicap at Doomben on February 25.

Dunn said he would be reluctant to run Quatronic, one of the most promising horses in his stable, on anything worse than a soft track.

“He had a bit of problem when he returned home after his last start when he was well beaten. But he is better than that,” Dunn said.

He said Quatronic was a horse who had to be carefully managed and didn’t take hard racing.

But Dunn is keen to run Snitz on a heavy track even from the outside barrier.

“Normally you would scratch him straight away if he drew 14 out of 14 from that start,” he said.

“But on a wet track it is a different story. He is bred to handle the wet and he did a good job to win his first start at Grafton on a soft track from a wide barrier.

“I think he has enough pace to get into a good position in the wet even from that barrier.”
