Munce-trained Lucky Black set for back-up

Improving Lucky Black has done so well since his win last Saturday, trainer Chris Munce has postponed a brief let-up for the gelding.

Munce pencilled in Lucky Black for a winter carnival campaign after he led all the way at Doomben last week.

It was Lucky Black’s second win in his past three starts and his seventh overall in a career which has been dogged with injury problems.

Lucky Black has accepted for Doomben on Saturday where he will be ridden by Jim Byrne.

Munce said he had intended to give Lucky Black a break after last Saturday and bring him back for the winter sprints.

“He has done so well this week I feel I can get another win out of him and boost his rating further for the winter,” Munce said.

“A final decision will be made on him on Friday night but at this stage I see no reason he should not race.

“It will be a good test for him.”
