Global Ausbred could implement Lawler’s vision in the January Cup

He continues to mature into a good stayer and took a city win, winning the 1800m at Randwick and then having little luck in the Summer Cup 2000m.

“He had great preparation and we put him through these stakes races and he rose to them,” said Widdup. “Last time he just wasn’t lucky, he got caught far but kept coming back.

“He has a good draw on Saturday and the rain won’t worry him.”

Lawler knows the best is yet to come from Global Ausbred but expects to be in the firing line at Rosehill.

“I hope he can get that bit of black guy over the weekend. We still think he has some development left,” Lawler said. “He’s a swinging horse and likes to go forward, so I think that’s how we’ll be riding him at the weekend.

“The more rain we get, the better his chances will be. He’s a big horse like Maurice, but very light on his feet, so he seems to be gliding over the ground.”

As well as breeding with Maurice, Lawler has bought his stock, including Ausbred Flirt for $115,000, which will also be released at Rosehill on Saturday.

“Ausbred Flirt has taken a while to develop, but we’ve given her the time that looks like she’s what the Maurice breed needs,” Lawler said. “They need time and they also need a bit of ground and she shows the utility of that.

“She’s a nice prospect.”

After a couple of easy wins at Kembla Grange, Ausbred Flirt were crushed in the shadow of the post at Randwick’s Estadio Mestalla on Christmas Eve, but Widdup is watching the weather for Ausbred Flirt.

“She needs the track solid so it will depend on how much rain they get at Rosehill,” Widdup said. “She has some good races ahead of her so we could wait a week with her.”
