Smith’s Dual Eye Liner Stakes 2014 Assault

Brisbane-based Kiwi expat Brian Smith is getting set for a bumper Ipswich Cup Day including saddling up two hopes in the 2014 Eye Liner Stakes.

There are 13 sprinters engaged in this year’s $175,000 Listed City Of Ipswich Eye Liner Stakes (1350m), two of which come from the Eagle Farm stables of New Zealand trainer Smith.

Smith will be represented by two roughie chances with Jetset Lad ($31) and Billy Aucash ($51) jumping beside each other from barriers six and five respectively.

It’s a tight Eye Liner Stakes betting market ahead of the weekend with Chris Waller’s last start QTC Cup runner-up Masthead and the rails-drawn Black Cash for the Gold Coast’s Kelly Doughty sharing top spot at $4.80.

Smith’s two though are at the opposite end of the markets out to score an upset in Ipswich Race 6 at 3:05pm.

Both get into the handicap clash with light weights however, Jetset Lad on 54.5kg with apprentice Anthony Allen in the saddle and Billy Aucash on the 54kg minimum with Vinnie Colgan to ride, and Smith is happy with how they’re travelling.

“They’re both chances,” he told the Queensland Times.

New Zealand-bred Elusive City six-year-old Jetset Lad is back down under having raced exclusively in NZ this year.

They’ve been well out of form however finishing near the back of the field in all but their last run when fourth over the Awapuni mile on May 17 from their outside barrier 13 draw.

“He’s had no form, the New Zealand horse; he’s only been over a couple of weeks,” Smith said.

“John Wheeler sent him over to me and the horse is very well.”

Saturday is their third shot at the Eye Liner Stakes.

Jetset Lad ran a close second to Belltone when carrying 58.5kg back in 2012 and then last year the Group 1 performer carried 56.5kg to a fifth behind Conservatorium having raced wide throughout.

“I think that he’s going to run a big race,” Smith predicted.

“He ran second a couple of years ago but he had a heavy track.

“So he’s a big chance.”

Billy Aucash meanwhile is looking to improve on their 14th to Regular last time out when first-up over this distance at Doomben on May 24.

Before the break they had decent spring form including their Eagle Farm win over 1800m in mid-November.

Well tried in Brisbane, they also have form at Ipswich but haven’t raced at the track since 2011 when prepared by former trainer Allan Ross and Smith knows they are up against it.

“Billy Aucash is a progressing horse but he’s second up and he may as well run because it’s big money,” he said.

Whether you’re sticking with one of the single figure favourites, or tipping an upset Eye Liner Stakes result from one of Smith’s hopes, the hottest markets on all the Ipswich races can be found online at Ladbrokes.com.au.
