14/07/02 Kattavia in a Boilover at the Valley
Adelaide trainer Leon Macdonald’s strong form at Melbourne’s Moonee Valley track continued yesterday when his two-year-old Kattavia caused a boilover in the Australian Racing Calendar Out 23 July Handicap (1600m).

Macdonald’s Melbourne foreman Andrew Noblet said the gelding, a son of the dual hemisphere siring success Grand Lodge, could develop into a Group One galloper at his next preparation.

"He will be spelled now and we won’t be looking to the spring for him," Noblet said after the soft win.

"You’d have to think he’d be suited in a race like the South Australian Derby in Adelaide," Noblet added.

Wearing the familiar colours carried by other stable stars including Gold Guru, Glitzy Guru and Regal Kiss, Kattavia was having his second run in Melbourne.

After scoring an impressive win at Victoria Park in Adelaide the young gelding was sent over the border and finished well out of the money at Flemington.

Yesterday through Kattavia made ever post a winner, and being caught wide the gelding worked up around the field to eye ball the favourite Tito.

From that point the Macdonald trained performer pulled clear of his rivals to set up a winning break.

Sir Pentire, from the in form Robbie Laing stable, made up some good late ground to grab second place. He can be followed as he is expected to make further improvement next season.
