12/01/02 Murray Not Expecting too Much from Unbeaten Colt
Kembla Grange based trainer Bede Murray isn't expecting too much from his promising colt Half Hennessy as he backs up at Canterbury today.

Murray was pleased with the colt's last start win at his home track last weekend, and despite the surprise win on debut the trainer isn't predicting a victory for today.

"He will be backing up at Canterbury after winning last Saturday, but I wouldn't be expecting too much," Murray said.

The in form trainer said he was still battling with the lack of experience with the $80,000 Sydney Yearling purchase.

"There's still a lot of improvement left in him. He was very green at Kembla Grange," Murray said.

"We probably were forced to start him two weeks before we would have ultimately wanted."

"He came through the run from last Saturday well and he looks to have a nice future," he added.

Murray has indicated if the horse runs well today he would continue and be aimed toward the $610,000 Inglis Classic in Sydney for graduates of the sale he was sold last year. It is the race also being targetted by Lee Freedman with his unbeaten juvenile Pillaging.

The New South Wales trainer won't be at Canterbury today. Murray is currently on the Gold Coast attending the Magic Millions Yearling Sale. From the first two session he has purchased two yearlings. One was a Peintre Celebre filly (from former smart galloper Paklani) for $30,000, while the other was a Snippets colt for $110,000.
