Rocky looking for his Group 1 victory

Eleven-year-old gelding Rock Magic will look to secure his maiden Group 1 victory when he steps out in the Crown Perth-Winterbottom Stakes at Ascot Racecourse on Saturday.

Age has not slowed down the gelding by Redoute’s Choice, placing first-up and then finishing fifth second-up.

Having finished third in the event last year, jockey Jarrad Noske has continued to ride while starting out his training career, holding onto the dream of the pair sharing in Group 1 glory.

They’re drawn to get a dream run through the early stages of the race as they’ll jump from barrier 2.
