Tip Of The Day Heading Towards Black Opal Stakes 2012

Aaron Clarke’s emerging two-year-old Tip Of The Day is preparing to make their Sydney race debut on Saturday’s Villiers Stakes Day, the son of Seidnazar looking to stake their claims for the 2012 Black Opal Stakes with a win in the $250,000 Inglis Nursery (1000m).

The richest race on the Warwick Farm program, the 2011 Inglis Nursery is restricted to two-year-old Inglis graduates and has drawn a final field of 12 youngsters that will face off in the third at 2:25pm.

Tip Of The Day is one of just five Inglis Nursery hopefuls that have had a previous start when they ran a close fourth on debut as the beaten odds-on favourite in a 1000 metre handicap at Canberra back on November 14.

“I thought he was a little bit green in his first up run, but overall I was fairly pleased with his performance,” the Braidwood-based Clarke said.

“He’ll be better for that run I think.”

Due to jump from barrier 10 with Kathy O’Hara engaged, Tip Of The Day is looking to break their maiden status and overcome the double digit draw to score victory.

“I think he is better prepared for this race then he was in his first race at Canberra,” Clarke added.

A good performance on Saturday and Clarke will begin planning Tip Of The Day’s autumn preparation with the $250,000 Listed Black Opal Stakes (1200m) at Canberra on March 11, 2012 on the agenda.

“We’ll take him back to the paddock for a little while and then I’m hoping to have him ready for the Black Opal,” Clarke said.

This year’s Black Opal Stakes was won in an upset by You’re Canny who defeated raging favourite and Magic Millions Classic winner Karuta Queen.

The other Inglis Nursery hopefuls with a race start to their credit are the Anthony Cummings-trained Choisir filly Diamond Earth, Matthew Dale’s Canberra visitor Geecup who is another daughter of Choisir and the Gerald Ryan-trained duo of Flying Snitzel and Stratum filly Star Pass.

Of these two have seen the inside of a winner’s stall with Diamond Earth taking out the Microflite Inglis Banner at Moonee Valley back in October and Flying Snitzel winning the Australian Turf Club Handicap (1200m) on a slow Canterbury track last Friday on debut.

The Inglis Nursery is a great early race for Luxbet punters on Saturday leading up to the meeting’s highlight event, the $175,000 Group 2 Villiers Stakes (1600m) running as Race 6 at 4:25pm.
