Young trainer Robert Wellwood, who joined Roger James in partnership at the start of the season, scored his first training victory at Taupo last week and he hopes his first black-type win is not too far away either.
One of the horses that could provide Wellwood with a breakthrough stakes victory is Gr.3 Trentham Stakes (2100m) winner Von Tunzelman. The six-year-old gelding has won twice at stakes level and Wellwood believes he can add to that tally this season.
The newly established training partnership of Roger James and Robert Wellwood could have an exciting season ahead.
