Berry booked to ride The Swoop

Fell Swoop will return to the race track in tomorrow (Thursday) in the Listed Absolut Stakes (1000m) at Flemington.

The Oaks Day return has been well anticipated for the now 7 - year- old and a trip to Perth for the Group 1 Winterbottom Stakes is a possibility if the sprinter shows form.

Canberra trainer Matt Dale says Fell Swoop arrived in Melbourne this morning in good order and says the sting out of the ground it perfect.

Dale says the set weight conditions of the Absolute suits and the gelding looks and feels as good as he's been in a long time.

Tommy Berry takes the mount; riding Fell Swoop for the first time.
