Guy Goes for Back-to-Back Ipswich Cup Trophies

Gold Coast horseman Bryan Guy stayed at home for last year’s Ipswich Cup that he won with Anagold but will be trackside this Saturday shooting for successive wins in the feature.

Anagold isn’t in the mix this year, the smart mare now prepared in Melbourne by Mick Price, but Guy returns with two hopes – Dienekes and Noisy Ocean.

He’s also represented earlier on the Ipswich Cup Day card in the $175,000 Listed Eye Liner Stakes (1350m) by last start Doomben winner Regular paying $11 to win.

Markets for the $175,000 Listed Channel 7 Ipswich Cup (2150m) meanwhile are a tight affair with the Gerald Ryan-trained Ironstein ($5) the narrow favourite despite their 58kg top weight.

The best fancied of Guy’s duo then is Stromberg Carlson seven-year-old Dienekes ($21) who has the rails run from barrier one while Shovhog five-year-old Noisy Ocean in gate five pays $26 for an upset Ipswich Cup result.

“It’s the same as last year,” Guy told The Courier-Mail.

“We aimed at the Cup with this pair because they weren’t quite up to the better staying races over the carnival.

“I just hope history repeats.”

Veteran gelding Dienekes comes off some nice lead-up form in the non-stakes winter races including a third to Aldini at the Gold Coast two back and then their second over 1800m at Eagle Farm seven days later on Oaks Day.

Noisy Ocean meanwhile also ran in that same race when beaten two and a quarter lengths by the Brian Smith-trained winner Southerly in the $50,000 Mittys BenchMark 90 Handicap (1800m) on May 31.

Guy is especially hopeful of Dienekes getting the job done as he, like Regular in the Eye Liner, will be ridden by his apprentice hoop Janette Johnson.

“I would love to get a stakes win for her,” Guy said.

“She rode Dienekes into third in the Magic Millions Cup and she’s had 16 rides on Regular and collected 16 cheques, so both of them go well for her.

“If she could win one of these, it would give her a real boost because she can still claim 3kg in town.”

While they are in a notable class and distance rise for Saturday’s Ipswich Cup, Guy remains hopeful that his presence at the track won’t be a burden and they can surprise the punters.

“It will probably bugger us up,” Guy said of deciding to head to Ipswich this year for the race instead of staying at home on the Gold Coast like last winter.

“It wasn’t that I didn’t give Anagold some hope [last year], it was just that we had to commit to the Coast.

“Jacquetta was having her first start back that day and she could be a real handful.

“Our foreman at the time, Russell Booth, was in a fair bit of pain with his hip and we were worried if she played up it could cause him some trouble, so we stayed at home to saddle her up.

“She got beaten, but we won three other races that day.”
