2014 Chief De Beers Handicap Results – Black Type for Cape Kidnappers

Today’s Chief De Beers Handicap 2014 finally saw injury-prone galloper Cape Kidnappers score a Black Type win at the six-year-old’s 12thcareer start.

The third race on the Doomben 10,000 Day program in Brisbane, the $80,000 Listed Sita Australia Chief De Beers Handicap (1100m) was the perfect race for the Kelly Schweida-trained Commands gelding Cape Kidnappers to atone for their first-up failure.

They did just that too, local hoop Damian Browne giving the $2.60 favourite the perfect run that allowed them to bolt home over the final couple of hundred meters.

Browne, who rides the favourite Buffering in the Group 1 Doomben 10,000 today, was fresh off a narrow loss on Agitate in the first.

He atoned here however with Cape Kidnappers beating home the Desleigh Forster-trained Adebisi ($12) by a couple of lengths.

Rob Heathcote’s Excellantes ($12) then finished off the trifecta in a close third having also sat up on the pace with the top two early.

Lightly-raced with just the 11 previous runs despite being a rising seven-year-old, Cape Kidnappers’ career has been plagued by injury stopping them from becoming a serious Group horse.

First-up last start on May 10 here though it wasn’t injury that resulted in their disappointing seventh to Pure Purrfection in the Listed Bribie Handicap (1100m).

Instead trainer Schweida takes the blame running them fresh there off a six month spell without a trial, something he only did to take advantage of a firm track.

“The other day it was probably my fault he got beat,” Schweida said after the Chief De Beers win.

“He doesn’t get much work because of his injuries.

“We took the dry track. He normally always has two trials or a jump out. It was my fault I was trying to play the weather.”

Cape Kidnappers bounced back at Doomben today however scoring a well-earned Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival victory.

“It was a gun run today,” Schweida said.

“He’s a good horse, a bit of a favourite of mine. No, actually he is my favourite.”

Out of the gates for the Chief De Beers it was Adebisi who hit the lead at the first corner sitting about two and a half lengths in front of Excellantes while Cape Kidnappers got the run of the race setting third.

On the home straight Browne got the Cape off the fence and they moved up to hit the lead at the 100m mare, racing away to win by a good margin.

The victory proved what, when not injured, they are capable of and hinted at better things to come.

“Kelly’s done a great job just getting him back to the races,” Browne said.

“He felt a million dollars today so it’s all credit to Kelly.

“Just taking that run out of him [first-up] took the freshness out of him, he was a lot better today.”

Next on the agenda Schweida plans to step them up in distance believing them capable of running out a strong 1300m no worries.

“Something like the Healy Stakes, I think he’ll run the 1350m on his head…maybe the Eye Liner,” the trainer said.

The $175,000 Group 3 WJ Healy Stakes (1200m) runs at Eagle Farm on Tattersall’s Tiara Day, June 21, while the $175,000 Listed Eye Liner Stakes (1350m) takes place the week before at Ipswich.
