Ryan Confirms Blinkers for Time For War in Sires’ Produce

Trainer Gerald Ryan has confirmed talented two-year-old Time For War will wear blinkers in this weekend’s Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1350m) after a less-than convincing performance in the Group 2 Champagne Classic (1200m) last time out.

Jumping from the gates only fairly, Ryan said the Snitzel colt was un-focused and disinterested throughout the Champagne Classic and did not appear the same colt as that which delivered a convincing victory in the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes (1200m) on March 29th.

“He was a little bit disappointing first-up, up there” Ryan said told Racing Ahead.

“He was coming off a freshen-up and young Damien (Thornton, jockey) thought that he didn’t put in and he didn’t want to chase them after the gates opened.

“He reared the gates and missed the start by probably three quarters of a length and he didn’t want to chase after.

“I wacked a pair of blinkers on him and we will see if that can switch him on a little bit.

“He has done very well and his work has been good and you would just like to see him run up to his Pago Pago and Sires form and that would be good.

“If he runs up to his last start up there that would be no good, but you have to forgive them one bad run.”

Debuting with an impressive turn of foot to win the CFMEU Mining & Energy Plate (1100m) in November, Time For War continued to stamp his claims as one to watch throughout major two-year-old events in the 2014 Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival in claiming the Pago Pago Stakes and finishing fourth amongst classy competition in the Group 1 ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) prior to his disappointing last start.

Allocated the ideal inside barrier for the 2014 BRC Sires’ Produce, Time For War is currently offered at generous odds of $9 to find the line in the clear, or $2.95 to run a place.

Strolling home to win the Champagne Classic last time out, Brazen Beau is currently sole occupant of the top line of betting for BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes success a $2.50 odds, ahead of Pressing ($6), Looks Like The Cat ($6.50) and Aimee ($8).
