Belltone Tops 2012 Tattersall’s Mile Nominations

In-form Kelso Wood-trained gelding Belltone heads a 12-horse nominations list for Saturday’s Listed $80,000 2012 Tattersall’s Mile (1600m) at Eagle Farm.


Belltone Heads Nominations for Saturday's Tattersall's Mile

The six-year-old has been in excellent form this winter, finishing just half a length off the lead first-up in the BRC Sprint before scoring runner-up honours in the Group 2 QTC Cup.

A son of Brahms, Belltone then recorded two consecutive black-type victories in the Listed Eye Liner Stakes at Ipswich and the Glasshouse Handicap at the Sunshine Coast.

Queensland record-breaking jockey Chris Munce rode the talented gelding in his past three starts and he will return to the saddle this weekend after a short holiday in Hawaii.

Likely to provided the biggest challenge to Belltone this weekend is Sydney-based gelding Adnocon who finished third in the Eye Liner Stakes before a convincing win in the Listed Ascot Handicap (1200m) at Eagle Farm on July 7.

Trained by Gerald Ryan, Adnocon is a veteran of nine wins from 47 starts and was within half a length of claiming a third straight Eye Liner Stakes win last month after taking top honours in 2010 and 2011.

If the rain that has been prevalent for much of the winter continues this weekend, that could play into teh favour of seven-year-old Pepperwood who proved his ability on heavy tracks when winning the Listed Spear Chief Handicap at Eagle Farm last month.

After a series of mid-field finishes this preparation, Toowoomba gelding Carry Me Bluey took out the South Grafton Cup (1600m) last start.

Also nominated is New Zealand Group 1 winner Vonusti, Brisbane four-year-old Falino and the in-form Topping.
