Burgander among Carnival hopefuls at Tulloch Lodge at Friday’s Rosehill trial

Trainer Adrian Bott believes the promising 3-year-old foal Burgunder could emerge as a contender for a truly big race during the spring carnival.

“I think Burgander is a very good horse,” Bott said.

“He may be ready for something else, but he has a lot of potential.

“He thought he had a very good trial at Gosford the other day and is due to try again on Friday.

Burgunder is one of many potential Spring Carnival prospects to be produced by Tulloch Lodge at Friday’s Rosehill Barrier Trial.

“We’re heading to Golden Eagle with Converge. That’s his grand final,” Bott said.

“His program is Tramway, George Main Stakes and Epsom Handicap, so he will enter the Golden Eagle in 4th place.

“The back end of his program has yet to be finalized, but it is owned by Hong Kong, so we may be able to bring horses to the international conference in December.”
