Shinn's Friday on Saturday would be grand

Jockey Blake Shinn enjoyed the perfect preparation for one of the biggest days of the Sydney autumn carnival, with four winners from his four rides at Canberra on Friday.

While Shinn would no doubt prefer a similar success rate on Golden Slipper day at Rosehill on Saturday, he said a win was a win. ''You enjoy winners everywhere, no matter where it is,'' he said.

Shinn thought he was a chance with all four of his rides at Thoroughbred Park - three were trained by Guy Walter and the other by Danny Williams from Goulburn.

His run started in the first race with $1.80 favourite Cloak Of Night breaking her maiden status with a 2.25-length win from Miss Expresso.


Faust then produced a gutsy win in the benchmark 60 handicap (2000 metres) before Shinn made it three from three with Fantastic Ballad in the fourth.

He then went out on odds-on favourite Gamba in the fifth and produced the perfect ride for a 1.75-length victory from Nick Olive's Nat King Cu.

Gamba's dominant run came after she played up on handlers trying to get her into the starting gate.

''She's got a little bit of a mind of her own, but she's a high-class horse, got some potential to go on with it,'' Shinn said.

It was Gamba's third win from as many starts and Shinn considers the four-year-old mare can go on to bigger and better things.

Shinn has five rides at Rosehill on Saturday, with Hot Snitzel in the group 3 HKJC Stakes (1200m) his best chance. He's also on Kutchinsky in the group 1 BMW (2400m) and Cathay Lady in the group 1 Queen of the Turf Stakes (1500m).
