Tattersall’s Racing Club Mile 2012 – Tips and Predictions

An action-packed day of racing will take place at Eagle Farm this Saturday and one of the highlights on the eight-event program is the Listed $100,000 2012 Tattersall’s Racing Club Mile (1600m).

A decent 11-horse field has been named including a number of horses who have performed well without taking top honours at the Brisbane Winter Carnival so far.

Heading the list is Chris Waller-trained Firebolt ($2.50) who has recorded consecutive seconds to Solzehnitsyn in the Group 3 Lord Mayor’s Cup and the Listed Strawberry Road Handicap.

Just behind Firebolt in the market is New Zealand gelding Jetset Lad who impressed in just his second start on Australian soil when runner-up in the Eye Liner Stakes on Saturday.

Fellow New Zealand horse St Germaine ($9.00) occupies the third line of betting while Stradbroke starter Listen Son ($12.00) drops back in class after some disappointing performances at Group level.

If you can’t make up your mind about this tough race, keep reading as the Races.com.au think tank have poured over the form to provide our expert tips.

The Winner

#2 Jetset Lad $3.40

Trainer John Wheeler had a big opinion of this gelding heading into the Stradbroke but he didn’t quite qualify for a start.

After disappointing first-up at Doomben in the Chief De Beers, the four-year-old produced an excellent run last start to finish a close runner-up to Belltone in the Eye Liner Stakes.

A winner of five of 24 starts, the distance will be no problem for the now Mornington-based horse who has won at 1800 metres before and finished third in the Group 1 Thorndon Mile in New Zealand.

Drawn well in barrier two, he will continue his association with Ric McMahon who rode him well last weekend.

The Placings

#1 Firebolt $2.50 and #4 Mystical Grey $11.00

Firebolt has been beaten by one of the emerging stars of the Winter Carnival on two occasions and there is no reason to suggest he shouldn’t perform again.

Drawn perfectly in barrier five, he will be ridden by experienced jockey Hugh Bowman and the quinella with the top two is likely here.

Mystical Grey struggled first-up but can be forgiven as the performance came on a heavy 10 track at Eagle Farm.

With 11 wins and nine placings from 35 starts, this Sunshine Coast-based gelding is a highly consistent performer and has produced at the distance before.
