    REJUVENATED trotter Have No Fear continued his belated rise through the grades with an eye-catching victory at Club Menangle last night.

    Breaking a long drought from the winners’ circle when triumphant at the world class venue on November 21, Have No Fear has registered three wins and a pair of fourths from his last five starts.

    Considered a rising star when imported from New Zealand in 2020, Have No Fear notched six victories and three placings from his first 12 Aussie outings before losing form and spending the better part of two years away from the track.

    Have No Fear’s first stint on the sidelines lasted eight months before having two starts and another 12 months off due niggling issues.

    Transferred to prominent couple Joe and Mary Rando in mid 2023, the son of Father Patrick has been nursed back to his best as evident by his form.

    “There is no doubt he is a nice horse, he just hadn’t had a really consistent campaign for a long time,” Joe said. “Even early on with us, his manners let him down a couple of times, but that’s because he is such a quirky type.

    “For example, when the rocks flick up from the track and hit him in the face, he shakes his head, loses rhythm and can gallop.

    “When he is on song, like last night, he is always going to be hard to beat.”

    Giving the gelding time to settle into his stride from barrier four, Will Rixon angled Have No Fear away from the pegs into the ‘death seat’ along the back.

    Sustaining a strong sprint, Have No Fear forged his way to the front around the final bend before staving off a late challenge from On Advice to score by a half-neck, with Sunny Gee seven-and-a-half metres away third.

    Owned by Emilio and Mary Rosati, the six-year-old covered the mile in 1:54.3.
