Harness Racing: Bell bullish over Whataretheodds

Trainer Ryan Bell is hoping Whataretheodds can put his troubles behind him and impress when he contests the Titanium Man Pace for three-year-olds at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

Whataretheodds will jump from barrier four and Bell is in a bullish mood over his prospects following a couple of good hit outs in the lead up to his latest assignment.

Not an easy ride

Reinsman Michael Grantham will be in the sulky and Bell is hoping his charge can get back to the kind of form he was showing before he was sent for a spell.

He had an impressive campaign as a two-year-old but Bell admits it has not always been easy with Whataretheodds.

They appear to be on the right track now though and Bell is looking forward to Friday night’s mission when he will be up against Wonderful To Fly.

Heading in the right direction

“I have made no secret that I’ve had a troubled preparation with him,” said Bell. “I don’t think that we’re one hundred per cent there yet, but I think he is good enough to win. The filly (Wonderful To Fly) will be the hardest to beat.

“The 2536m journey won’t worry Whataretheodds at all, it will be in his favour. We are finally stepping forward with him.
Two months ago, we were struggling, just with a few niggling soundness issues. He was going through a growth change, and this was upsetting him and giving him some aches and pains.

“We just took our time and now we seem to be on the right track. He has come through the trial extremely well and I’m looking upwards, hopefully. We will know more by Friday.”
