Improving galloper Blow In opened the door to an exciting spring campaign when he posted his third city win at Sandown on Wednesday.

The rising five-year-old has had 14 starts and from his four victories and three placings has already earned more than $176,000 for his connections.

Trainer Jamie Edwards says the gelding has much more to offer after he was dominant in BM70 company landing the Ladbrokes Live Betting Hcp (1400m).

“There is a lot of upside to him,” Jamie said.

“I’m really keen on him going into the spring. He was only second-up today, and he will get fitter.

“He needs to improve if he is going to go through his grades this spring, but the signs are positive.”

Jockey Craig Williams has ridden the son of Fighting Sun to all of his wins and on Wednesday remarked on the gelding’s development.

“Today was my first ride on him this preparation and he’s a lot more furnished and mature now,” Craig said.

He said he was mindful of how Blow In could be tardy to begin in his races and was pleased to see him jump well to take up a handy position early from his inside barrier.

He got shuffled back to seventh of the nine runners mid-race but was never more than four lengths off the lead with Williams happy to be where was given the pattern of racing on the day.

“The race panned out lovely for him and I was on the right horse to execute,” Craig said.

Into the home straight, Blow In railed up behind the leader Hard Reality and approaching the 200m he surged into the clear, quickly putting the race beyond doubt, scoring by 1-1/4 lengths from Brave Star and Blazero.

While Blow In’s wins have all been at 1400m, Craig Williams is confident he will run a strong 1600m.

Jamie said the “extra race”, designed for the state’s smaller stables, on 10-race cards on Saturday city meetings in the coming season look “great options” for Blow In at this stage of his career.
