08/01/02 Murray's Classic Hope Set for Sydney Back Up
In form Kembla Grange trainer Bede Murray will back up his debut weekend winner Half Hennessy this Saturday in Sydney as he aims the horse toward the $610,000 Inglis Classic.

Half Hennessy was very green and despite this still worked home too well to win the two-year-old race at Kembla Grange on Saturday.

Murray told reporters after the race that the youngster is very green and should develop into a nice horse in the future.

"He's got plenty of ability, but has only been in work for seven weeks and was very green on Saturday," Murray said.

The trainer, who's spring carnival was turned upside down with the Universal Prince saga, is planning on giving the colt a quick back up on Saturday.

"I've nominated him for Canterbury this Saturday and will probably run him as he really needs the education if he's to be any real chance in the Classic," he added.

Murray is hoping that Half Hennessy can improve further in order for him to win his second Inglis Classic. Cutabove won Murray his first running of the race in 1999.

Half Hennessy was a $65,000 yearling purchase at the 2001 Inglis Classic Sale in Sydney.
