The Joseph & Jones partnership have consistent mare Rock On Zariz looking to improve on previous form and trainer Paul Jones is confident with the better rated track and barrier. “She has been working well and we are happy with her training, we were forced on heavy tracks trying to qualify for the Provincial with disappointing results but racing on top of the turf will suit”
