O’Shea counts his blessings with Hawkesbury chances

Trainer John O’Shea will send a couple of strong chances to Hawkesbury on Tuesday with high hopes of continuing a strong run of form.

O’Shea will have last-start Goulburn winner Countyourblessings in the Workers Lifestyle Group F&M Benchmark 64 Handicap (1400m), while debut performer Silver Cliff will contest the Irresistible Pools And Spas Super 3YO Maiden Handicap (1100m).

“Countyourblessings found a nice race to resume in at Goulburn the other day and she did everything she needed to do to win,” said O’Shea.

“She was very short and a couple of scratchings helped her cause, but she won as expected.”

Chad Schofield was aboard in the Goulburn victory and he retains the ride at Hawkesbury, while Tommy Berry will ride Silver Cliff in her event.

“Silver Cliff is a very nice filly,” said O’Shea. “She’s had two barrier trials and she’s won both of them in very good style.

“She won the first of them at Hawkesbury back in September then won the latest of them at Randwick last month.

“She’s drawn well enough and Tommy sticks with her, so I’m expecting a good run.”

Form trainer Joseph Pride will also have runners at the Hawkesbury meeting, with a few leading chances.
