2012 BRC Sprint Preview and Tips

The bumper Doomben Cup day action is not too far away and one of the key support races to the Group 1 feature is the Group 3 2012 BRC Sprint (1350m).

Often used as a Strabroke Handicap lead up, the $125,000 will see a full field of 16 horses line up and the race looks to contain plenty of speed.

The field contains four last-start winners including Anthony Freedman-trained gelding Smokin’ Joey ($3.70) who is chasing a fourth consecutive victory.

Joining the bookmaker.com.au favourite with form on the board is Hawkesbury Guineas winner Free Wheeling ($4.60) and Joseph Pride-trained gelding Tiger Tees ($6.00).

The BRC Sprint will run as the eighth race on the bumper Doomben card and is set to jump at 4:30pm (AEST).

Too hard to find a winner in this open race? Don’t worry, the Races.com.au team have done the hard work for you and after carefully studying the form have come up with our best selections for the BRC Sprint.

The Winner

#2 Tiger Tees ($6.00)

Provided this Joe Pride-trained four-year-old can overcome the wide barrier draw (13) he will be one of the front runners.

He led from start to finish in the Listed Hall Mark Stakes and looks more than ready to step up to Group level here after impressing in a barrier trial earlier this month.

With seven victories from 10 starts, the son of Dubawi knows how to win and if previous efforts are anything to go by will come charging out of the gates tomorrow.

The Placings

#8 Free Wheeling (4.60) and #10 Carry Me Bluey ($7.00)

Peter Snowden-trained colt Free Wheeling has produced excellent efforts in his last two runs and that form looks set to continue here.

The talented three-year-old hit the line hard when fourth in the Phar Lap Stakes and improved last start to win the Hawkesbury Guineas.

Carry Me Bluey must be forgiven for his last-start fourth where he finished nearly two lengths behind the winner in what was a heavy Gold Coast track.

The Toowomba-based gelding fares far better on top of the ground and has won at the distance before so don’t be surprised to see him bounce back to his consistent best tomorrow.

The Roughie

#6 Celtic Dancer ($41.00)

Beat plenty of BRC Sprint runners last start when producing an upset win in the Prime Minister’s Cup on the Gold Coast and receives a plum barrier six draw here.

Youngster Timothy Bell returns to his saddle after riding him terrifically in the Prime Minister’s Cup and if he can produce a similar finish to that seen two weeks ago he will be right amongst the chances.

Agree that Tiger Tees will win in his first step up to Group level? Whether your selections match ours or not, head to bookmaker.com.au to get the best value for your betting this weekend.
