Oh Micky big chance to make it three from three

By Jonny Turner

You just can’t keep Jonny Cox and Oh Micky out of Southland.

While both are officially stationed in Canterbury, they’ve been spending a fair amount of time in the deep south recently.

Oh Micky is unbeaten from the Cox stable after her purchase out of Southland.

The mare won her first start for the trainer-driver at Winton before making it two from two at Addington.

Oh Micky has headed back down south in the hope she can make it three from three on Saturday in the Woodlands Stud Mobile Pace.

And judging by the race she slots into she looks a huge chance of doing exactly that.

“The junior race she won at Addington probably was a harder field, she beat Ideal Double who has come out and won two in a row,” Cox said.

“So it is looking pretty good form.”

“In saying that she is racing hard and fit Southland horses on Saturday and they won’t be just giving her the race.”

Cox also brings a new stable pickup south in Moonlight Angel in the Marshall Industries Trot.

“She seems to have settled in well, I drove her a couple of times and didn’t mind her but she finished a fair way from them.”

“Her work has been good, we are just hoping that the change of scenery might be able to spark her into life.”

Cox combines with another Canterbury trotter in the Stonewall Stud trained Elizabeth Hill in the Southbuild ITM Mobile Trot.

The mare heads south to find a mobile race on Saturday.

“If she can do things right she is a solid chance, the mobile looks a good option for her which is why she is coming down.”

Cox has formed a strong combination with Matau Maria on his recent trips south. She'll line up in the Sincair Family Mobile Pace.

The mare has been in outstanding form recently despite getting few favours.

“She is definitely not afraid of doing work and she’s never had a decent draw.”

“She’s got another tough draw this week but she has shown how consistent she is and hopefully she can go another good race.”

Cox reunites with Jaccka Bayliss in the Subway Winton Handicap Trot and steps up in grade after a last start win at Winton.

The reinsman also combines with Ultimate Collect who looks like a handy chance in race 2, the Alabar NZ Fillies and Mares Mobile Pace.

After stepping up sharply in grade in his last start at Winton, Dangerous lands in a more suitable grade in race 10, the Winter Rewards Finals Day 29th June Mobile Pace.
