Double Impact Set for Sunshine Coast Guineas 2012

Toowoomba trainer Jackie Crompton is hoping the improved form of their Mossman three-year-old Double Impact will continue in Queensland this Saturday when the youngster takes on some top rivals in the 2012 Sunshine Coast Guineas.

Double Impact

Double Impact is one of the top chances for the 2012 Sunshine Coast Guineas this Saturday

Yesterday a massive 34 nominations were taken for this year’s edition of the $100,000 XXXX Sunshine Coast Guineas (1600m), known wet tracker Double Impact considered one of the top early chances.

A winner of four of their 20 starts so far Double Impact has been racing competitively recording two black type placings this time in.

First-up they finished a good third to Florentina in the Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas (1200m) on a Heavy (8) track back on May 5.

A seventh to the Peter Snowden-trained Mental in the Group 3 Fred Best Classic (1350m) at Doomben was then followed by their eye-catching fourth to subsequent Tattersall’s Tiara winner Pear Tart in the Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1400m) beaten just a length and a quarter at Eagle Farm in the wet.

Last start Double Impact raced on Stradbroke Handicap Day running third to Mental this time in the Listed Daybreak Lover Stakes (1600m), an effort Crompton is confident they will improve on this Saturday.

“I’m not sure he appreciated the seven-day back-up,” she said.

“I think that took a bit out of him.”

Happy with the progression of Double Impact this campaign Crompton is now hoping they can step it up as they make their Sunshine Coast debut in the Guineas where they are likely to come up against the likes of Daybreak Lover third plaegetter Venture On, Louise White’s in-form local hope Diet and the John Sargent-trained Kiwi raider Cathay Lady.

“This is the race we targeted for the carnival,” she said.

“He’s done himself proud the way he has gone this preparation.

“Every run has been good against strong opposition.”

While it will be their first look at the Caloundra track Crompton is confident the softer surface up there should work in their advantage.

“He’s never raced there, but there’s usually plenty of softness in the track, so it should suit him,” Crompton said.
