PREMIERSHIP winning trainer Aaron Brown has adopted a ‘wait and see’ policy with his latest stable acquisition Rocknroll Legend.
Although Rocknroll Legend made a successful South Australian debut earlier this week, Brown is yet to be convinced with the three-year-old’s potential.
Brown’s concerns stem from Rocknroll Legend’s attitude, which the horseman hopes is a case of immaturity.
“He’s only had 10 starts, so he’s still green and learning,” Brown said. “He’s won three of his six starts this season, but whether his form looks better than it should, I haven’t decided.
“The ability is there, it’s just he has a bit of an attitude about him. I’m still learning about hi, so I will wait and see how he comes along.”
The son of Rocknroll Hanover has the opportunity to impress Brown when he competes at Globe Derby on Saturday night.
Drawn barrier four, the noted quick beginning shapes as the early leader, with Brown quietly confident Rocknroll Legend can emerge triumphant.
“He does come out of the gate well, so from there he is likely to go forward,” Brown said. “I am interested to see how he can handle being held up, so we’ll see how the others around him begin.
“Takemepitchamkister goes well, and although he’s off the second row, is the one to beat.”
