Sincero On Track for Stradbroke

Three year old sensation Sincero faces the sternest test of his career on Saturday when he lines up in the Group 2 QTC Cup.

Sincero has won eight races from 12 starts and is currently a $5.00 second favourite for the Stradbroke Handicap, which will take place at Eagle Farm racecourse on the 11th of June.

Trainer Stephen Farley is confident that his three year old speed machine can win on Saturday to assure himself a start in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap.

“He’s worked as good as I’ve ever seen him. He looks to be right on top of his game. He has really thrived and looks in great order,” said Farley.

At this stage, Sincero is not assured of a start in the Stradbroke, because he has only been handicapped with 49.5kgs. However a win on Saturday would result in re-ballot, which would see Sincero make the field.

Sincero’s last two races have been victories in the Scone and Gosford Guineas, and while this represents a big step up in class, he is a horse who has shown the ability to find the winning line.

“He has to be competitive to warrant a run in the Stradbroke. This will be his first time racing in top group company. He will need to step up another gear” said Farley.

Chris O’Brien, who has been in the saddle for all of Sincero’s wins will not ride the horse in Brisbane as he is unable to make the weight.

Tim Clark has been engaged to ride the horse in the QTC Cup, however champion jockey Glen Boss will have first choice to ride Sincero in the Stradbroke, should the horse progress that far.

Boss has ridden Sincero only once, however it was in one of the only races the classy colt has tasted defeat in. Boss will decide after the QTC Cup whether he will ride Sincero in the Stradbroke or, stay committed to his Singapore bookings.
