Cassidy Tips Fast Clip in Shock Doncaster Mile Result 2012

Jim Cassidy is confident he is on the right Gai Waterhouse-trained runner in the 2012 Doncaster Mile at Randwick tomorrow, the Hall of Fame jockey tipping a massive upset with progressive four-year-old Fast Clip to upstage the stars.

Fast Clip

Prelude winner Fast Clip is a roughie with a good chance in the 2012 Doncaster Mile tomorrow according to Cassidy

The Snippetson gelding is one of three $2 million Group 1 BMW Doncaster Mile (1600m) hopes for Waterhouse to score her seventh victory in the classic, Fast Clip joining his better fancied stablemates Niagara and the mighty More Joyous.

Six time Group 1 winning mare More Joyous fresh off a successful title defense in the Queen of the Turf Stakes currently sitting top of the Doncaster Mile odds at bookmaker.com.au paying $6.50, an equal price with Randwick mile champ Secret Admirer.

Up-and-coming Encosta De Lago colt Niagara, easy winner of the Ajax Stakes two back before their 12th in the George Ryder under weight-for-age conditions, is next in the Doncaster markets for Waterhouse paying $9.50.

Fast Clip meanwhile pays a juicy $31 to back up form their Doncaster Prelude win at the track and distance last Saturday, a nice price if you ask Cassidy.

“When he won the Doncaster Prelude last Saturday I just threw my name into the hat,” Cassidy said.

“I’m rapt to be on it.

“You know it is going to be ready for the mile, being trained by Gai.

“It is always good to be on one of Gai’s in a Doncaster, have a look at her record.

“She has an outstanding record … I’d love to be the one to equal Tommy’s record for her.”

The Tommy that holds the current Doncaster Mile training record is the late great Tommy Smith, Waterhouse’s father.

Cassidy rides Fast Clip for the first time on Saturday, their Prelude winning jockey Tommy Berry sticking with Niagara for the Doncaster, and he is quietly confident he can get the job done.

The hoop shoots for his third Doncaster Mile victory having broken his maiden in the race just three years back with Vision And Power.

It was a bog track that year and Randwick is going to be in the Heavy range again for Saturday, another reason Cassidy thinks Fast Clip will do well.

“There are a lot of pluses there,” Cassidy said.

“He is going to be there in the right place from barrier four.

“He was there on the pace last Saturday and he’ll produce at the right time.

“I think it is a very open race, very open, there a number of chances and luck is going to play a big part.

“Mine has wet form, too, and you’ll need it.

“He is a good, tough horse, you’ve got a good, tough trainer, a good, tough jockey.”
