Pengelly hopes form will continue



FORMER Gladstone jockey Brad Pengelly is hoping to continue his winning form when he rides at Doomben today.

Pengelly, who rode a winning double at the Sunshine Coast on Thursday, has five rides booked for today's meeting.

And judging by Pengelly's form at the coast, a winner may be found in this bunch.

They include the impressive Stood Up in race one and the wellfancied More Than Hugs in race seven.

Both chances face plenty of stiff opposition in their respective races, but do have the ability to win.

Pengelly's other rides to look out for are Abu Simbel for Gerald Ryan (race two), the good Doctor Hennessy (race five) and Matey (race eight).

Racing at Doomben starts at 12.35pm. Today's racing will not be the only action Pengelly sees this weekend, as he has committed to seven rides at the Sunshine Coast for tomorrow's meeting.

Pengelly currently leads the jockeys premiership standings at Corbould Park, with 10 winners, five clear of nearest rivals Ryan Plumb and Ken Pope.

Central Queensland racing is at Emerald today with a four-race program.

The only horse with Gladstone connections is Much Loved who is looking for her first career win in the Maiden Plate.

Racing in the gem of the west starts at 1.30pm.
