Adnocon’s Tatt’s Mile Stepping Stone – Ascot Handicap 2012

Gerald Ryan’s Sydney galloper Adnocon will use this Saturday’s 2012 Ascot Handicap at Eagle Farm as a stepping stone to another end of season goal, the Tattersall’s Mile.


Adnocon could back up from Saturday's Ascot Handicap in the 2012 Tattersall's Mile

The Clang six-year-old vied for their third straight win in the Eye Liner Stakes at Ipswich last start on June 16, and while they failed in their bid to become a triple winner of the Listed feature, they did run an eye-catching third to subsequent Glasshouse Handicap champ Belltone.

Next-up they go to the $80,000 Listed Ascot Handicap (1200m), Adnocon drawn ideally on the rails with barrier one in the 11-horse race.

Originally the gelding was to back up from their Eye Liner and take on Belltone in the Glasshouse Handicap over 1400m at the Sunshine Coast last Saturday.

They were scratched from the Caloundra Cup Day feature due to the unsuitable Heavy (10) course, and will be more suited to the firmer track at Eagle Farm for the Ascot Handicap.

“It was only because of the track,” Ryan said.

“He’s won on slow going but nothing worse than that.

“After I scratched him Saturday morning I worked him late and I was wishing I hadn’t had to scratch him.”

Currently the course proper at Eagle Farm is rated a Slow (6) but with the fine weather and no more rain predicted before the weekend it could move into the Dead range for Queen’s Cup Day.

Should they perform well this weekend Ryan will back them up in the $125,000 Listed Tattersall’s Mile (1600m) back at the track on July 21, the last of the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival features, the trainer seeking another win in the race he took out with Spirit Of Tara back in 2006.

“He has to run Saturday because I want to go to 1600 metres with him in two weeks, the Tattersall’s Mile,” Ryan said.

Among Adnocon’s main dangers in the Ascot Handicap field on Saturday are the Rob Heathcote-trained Lighting Handicap winner Griffon coming off a third in the WJ Healy Stakes and Gillian Heinrich’s progressive four-year-old Audacious Spirit.
