Miss Tipsy Topsy Targets Perth Cup 2011

Miss Tipsy Topsy Targets Perth Cup 2011

This Saturday Stan Bates’ dual stakes winning mare Miss Tipsy Topsy will race third-up for the season at Ascot, the four-year-old out to stake her claims for the 2011 Perth Cup on New Year’s Eve.

The Spinning World four-year-old was the impressive winner of the Listed Belmont Oaks – Belmont Classic double back in July, Miss Tipsy Topsy breaking her Ascot maiden last-start winning a mile showdown at the course when defeating the likes of The Tenby Friar and Gum Nut Guru on November 12.

Her first-up effort back on October 29 was also promising when she finished seventh to subsequent Railway Stakes third placegetter Westriver Kevydonn over the unsuitably short distance of 1400 metres.

It is back to Ascot this Saturday for Miss Tipsy Topsy who will race in the $45,000 WA Surface Mining Handicap (1800m), for which she is the current $2 favourite for at Luxbet.

Bates is confident the step up to 1800 metres tomorrow will be a nice advantage for his mare.

“She has trained on really well since her last start and the extra distance will suit,” he said.

“She showed us this time in she has taken it to another level with a highly encouraging trial and she should only improve as she gets up in distance.”

One thing that does concern Bates heading into Ascot Race 5 tomorrow is the smaller nine-horse field and Miss Tipsy Topsy’s inside barrier three draw, which may not work to her strengths.

“The small field on Saturday worries me,” he said.

“It may develop into a sit and sprint home and horses like Veracious and Come Flirt With Me will have a head start on her.”

Come Flirt With Me ($4.40) and Veracious ($6) are the only other horses in the field paying single-figures in the Luxbet markets.

A good performance by Miss Tipsy Topsy tomorrow and it will be onto a much bigger prize, the $400,000 Group 2 Perth Cup (2400m).

It will be the second running of the 2011 Perth Cup, the race transferred from its traditional New Year’s Day timeslot to run on Saturday December 31 instead meaning the 2012 Perth Cup is not scheduled for another year.

In between tomorrow’s assignment and the Perth Cup 2011 Bates has the $80,000 Listed WA St Leger (2100m) on December 17 scheduled on Miss Tipsy Topsy’s Perth Summer Racing Carnival program.

“I have always had the WA St Leger earmarked as her main target and she is heading in the right direction,” he said.

“If everything goes to plan she will be there on New Year’s Eve for the Perth Cup and the 2400 metre journey will be right up her alley.

“She would have a light weight (in the Perth Cup) and certainly wouldn’t be there to make up numbers.”
