Wet Track Favours Topping in 2012 Tattersall’s Mile

The wetter the better for Tony Gollan-trained gelding Topping who will be out to upset a host of more fancied rivals in tomorrow’s Listed $80,000 2012 Tattersall’s Mile (1600m) at Eagle Farm.

The five-year-old is stepping up to Listed level for the first time since November last year and trainer Gollan is confident he will appreciate the expected soft track.

Early week rain has the Eagle Farm surface currently rated in the heavy range and even with dry, clear skies today and tomorrow it is unlikely to get better than slow.

“We’ve had a bit of rain and there’s showers forecast so the track is going to be rain-affected which is certainly no concern for us,” Gollan said.

The son of Top Echelon showed his appreciation for give in the ground in two runs this preparation, producing consecutive runner-up finishes on slow and heavy tracks.

But tomorrow’s race is a steep step up from his last start in the Contour Consulting Engineering BM90 Handicap at the Sunshine Coast and he will have to topple the in-form Belltone and Adnocon to taste success.

“We’re probably throwing him in the deep end a bit in a stakes race,” Gollan said.

“But those top weights have earned their weight and he’s going to get in nicely on the minimum.”

The wet track may also aid favourite Belltone, who showed his ability on a heavy track last start when winning the Listed Glasshouse Handicap (1400m) at the Sunshine Coast last start.

Trained by Kelso Wood, the six-year-old is chasing a third consecutive black-type victory after also winning the Eye Liner Stakes at Ipswich last month.

Experienced Gerald Ryan-trained gelding Adnocon is also in excellent form, having finished third in the Eye Liner Stakes before winning the Listed Ascot Handicap at Eagle Farm last start.
