Wells needs no instruction

Amanda Turner trusts Peter Wells knows her horses well enough not to bother too much about giving the Jamberoo jockey instructions.

It’s a formula that’s worked for the trainer-jockey combination for the better part of the past 12-months and one which Turner, and co-trainer Mauro Poletti, continued to follow at Nowra on Tuesday.

Wells proved their judgement to be correct with a winning double for the stable on A Touch Of Luck (race three) and Art Of Excellence (race four). 

“Peter is riding terrific,” Turner said after the win of Art Of Excellence.

“He knows the horses and so you just have to let him go out and ride how the horses are feeling. 

“When Peter is riding, there are no instructions.

“You just ride them how you find them.

“If jumped awkwardly he just goes with what he got or if he jumps good, he knows what he is doing.”

Both wins came in dominant fashion.

A Touch Of Luck was ridden outside the leader and let down a widening 2-¼ lengths before Art Of Excellence ran rivals of their feet thanks to a perfectly judged front-running ride from Wells, which finished in a three length romp. 

Wells also had a second on Dashie de Luxe.
