Brasch’s Ideal Position for Civic Stakes 2012

Mudgee trainer Jeff Brasch is confident his progressive four-year-old Ideal Position will handle their debut stakes assignment well when they go to Rosehill Gardens for the 2012 Civic Stakes this Saturday.

The Snippetson gelding is one of 14 gallopers nominated for this year’s edition of the $100,000 Listed Civic Stakes (1400m), Ideal Position getting in on the 54kg minimum.

Just five of the entries have been handicapped above that in the Civic Stakes weights with Lee Freedman & Graeme Rogerson’s recent acquisition Lady Lynette, a three time Group winner, allocated the 59kg topweight.

A winner of eight of their 15 career starts to date Ideal Position was a bargain buy for current connections Guntawang Stud who picked them up for a steal paying just $1,100 at the 2011 William Inglis and Son Sydney Autumn Sales back in March.

Brasch’s first ever stakes starter Ideal Position comes off a victory at the track and distance when defeating a weaker field in a benchmark 80 on June 9.

That run was worth $42,000 to the winner which was Brasch’s biggest victory as a trainer.

“As a trainer you always hope you can have a horse that can get to that (stakes) level,” Brasch said.

“For me it has always been someone else’s horse that has got there and this is the first time I’m the one who has got one to get to this level.

“It doesn’t happen very often so we’ve got to try to make the most of the opportunity.”

That was also the fourth win from five runs this time in for the up-and-coming Ideal Position who earlier enjoyed success in the Gooree Cup at their home track at Mudgee back in May over the mile.

Brasch is under no illusions that it is a sharp rise in class for Ideal Position on Saturday but he remains hopeful that the horse will bring some stiff competition to the likes of the returning Brilliant Light, the Chris Waller-trained Tromso and John O’Shea’s June Stakes winning mare Alberton Park.

“This will be my first stakes runner and I’m really looking forward to getting him down there and giving him his opportunity in the Civic Stakes,” Brasch said.

“It’s a good field but the thing with him is that he’s very fit and he’s done so well since his win at Rosehill.

“I think it’s a good opportunity to test him and find out where he is at.”

Top bush hoop Greg Ryan, aboard Ideal Position for all five of their starts this year, retains the ride for the Civic Stakes.

The 2012 Civic Stakes final field and barrier draw are set for release on Wednesday with Races.com.au to publish the full list of acceptors and gates.
