Hatch plans to boost Jadentom's CV

Toowoomba trainer Lindsay Hatch may dodge the Brisbane winter carnival and head to Melbourne with classy mare Jadentom if she performs up to expectations at the Gold Coast on Saturday.

Jadentom puts her excellent first-up record on the line when she resumes in the TAB Military Rose Plate over 1200m.

The seven-year-old is likely in her last season of racing before heading to the breeding barn and Hatch wants to boost her resume ahead of a stud career.

Jadentom has won five of her seven starts first-up and was successful at her only start on a heavy track, which has boosted Hatch’s confidence with the Gold Coast track in the heavy range.

“The wet track won’t worry her, she’ll love it,” Hatch said.

“She’s won five times first-up and has missed a place only once in seven starts first-up.

“She’s going super at the moment and I think she’s better now than when she won the (Listed) Weetwood Handicap last year.”

Jadentom has been in work for three months after spelling following her last-start third to the Tony Gollan-trained Niedorp in the Listed Tattersall’s Classic over 1200m at Doomben in November.

The daughter of Rothesay has started 29 times for 12 wins and six placings with prize money earnings just short of $400,000.

Hatch is yet to decide Jadentom’s next run and will be guided by her Gold Coast performance.

“I want to see how she goes in this race before I look too far ahead,” he said.

“She’s in a really good place at the moment and I’d like to send her to Melbourne for a Group 3 race when the tracks are wet rather than target the winter here.”

Hatch, who won the Toowoomba trainers’ premiership for the first time last season, expects Jadentom to be around the money on Saturday. 

“She’s going to be very hard to beat although there’s a few tips around for Tony Gollan’s Outback Barbie and Gem Of Scotland,” he said.

“But Gem Of Scotland is second-up and is coming back from injury.

“My mare has drawn the rails and should be able to find a nice spot in third or fourth in the run.

“If she can win this and go to Melbourne and win a Group race it would be good for her CV for when she goes to stud next season.”
