CASH View and Mick’s Recall, brilliant winners at Albion Park on Thursday night, have major race plans coming up.

Cash View (Raw Ability-Cashpot) was mercurial when winning the final of the Dave Brett Memorial Maiden (520m) in an amazing 29.76 for breeder, owner and trainer Robert Cooke with his litter brother Cash Stack finishing  third.

Cooke now plans to charge straight into next Thursday night’s heats of the Group 2 Queensland Derby with the litter brothers even though they have not yet turned 21 months.

Then Mick’s Recall (Dyna Double One-Paul’s Memory) made her 710m debut with an all-the-way win in 41.87 in a 5th Grade and trainer Jamie Hosking announced he would map out a program centered around a series of feature staying races coming up in Queensland and New South Wales.

“If they pull up OK, then I don’t see any reason why they should not go into the heats of the Derby next week,” said Cooke.

“And, even though he’s run 29.76, there is still a good deal of improvement in those pups.”

The Derby series is likely to attract all the current stars of Albion Park racing headed by Farmor Beach, the recent Ipswich Gold Cup winner, which just makes it into the Derby series which is restricted to males 30 months or younger at the time of the heats.

Meanwhile, Jamie Hosking was relieved Mick’s Recall was brilliant in her 710m debut.

“You never are sure they will run the extra distance until they are tested,” he said.

“But, she passed the test and now we can look to map out a program to chase some good races with her.

“There are a couple of nice races coming up at Wentworth Park, but there is also the Group 1 in the New Year at Albion Park.”

Hosking admitted the rise in distance had an effect on the bitch after the race but by the following morning she had bounced back.

Mick’s Recall has now won 11 of her 26 starts and seven of her past nine and only turned two back in August.
