Brown to Untangle Oaks Hope

Melbourne Cup-winning hoop Corey Brown will have all the luck with the inside running in the Queensland Oaks this Saturday with his mount, In A Tangle, drawn ideally in barrier one for the Eagle Farm classic.

The Bryan Guy-trained Bradbury’s Luck filly In A Tangle may have come up trumps in the gate draw for the $400,000 Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m), but the Gold Coast-based galloper is still a $41 roughie in the markets lead by Scarlett Lady ($3.40).

In A Tangle has had 16 starts to date for three wins, the most recent of which came in a 1350m handicap at Doomben back on March 26.

Despite having shown promise last month running second to fellow Oaks hopeful Divorces in the Listed Gold Coast Bracelet (1800m), In A Tangle got found out last start over the 2020m when she ran a distant 11th to Kiwi sensation Scarlett Lady.

Still, Guy remains hopeful that In A Tangle can use her good draw and display her staying qualities to get up to the 2400m on Saturday and race competitively in this year’s Queensland Oaks, and he believe his extended association with Victorian hoop Corey Brown will be the key.

“Everything is 100 per cent with her at the moment and with the one alley and Corey Brown, I’m very pleased with it all,” Guy, a former foreman for his late father Ray Guy in Sydney, said.

For her two most recent runs this prep, In A Tangle was ridden by veteran jockey Jim Cassidy, but Guy has opted for a rider change giving Brown the mount.

“Corey’s experience in the big races will be invaluable,” Guy said.

“He rode a lot of winners for me when I was in Sydney.

“Corey rode a winner for me when he had a 3kg (claim) at Wyong one day.

“That’s how long I’ve known him for, and he rode his first winner in Melbourne for me.”

Win or lose in the Oaks, Guy is looking forward to seeing In A Tangle perform during the spring.

“I’ll get the Oaks out of the way first but she could end up in Melbourne for the spring,” he said.
