Wood Confident of Eye Liner Success With Into The Red

Brisbane based trainer Kelso Wood is full of confidence heading into Saturday’s Ipswich Cup Day meet where his promising colt Into The Red will look to bounce back in the 2014 Eye Liner Stakes.

The Not A Single Doubt three-year-old is one of 13 runners in the $175,000 Listed City Of Ipswich Eye Liner Stakes (1350m) this year, Into The Red out to atone for a last start failure during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

After two nice runs for the season earlier in May, on Queensland Oaks Day two weeks back a bad gate got the better of them in the Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1400m).

There they got sent right back from barrier 15 of 18 and couldn’t get a clear run, blocked throughout and eventually running six lengths away 17th beating home just one other runner in a race won by Sir Moments.

It’s an effort everyone, including Wood, is best to forgive and forget.

“Don’t worry about his run in the Queensland Guineas he virtually had nowhere to go for the whole straight,” Wood told AAP.

Before that the youngster was in top form starting with a first-up fifth when beaten under two lengths by Dothraki in the Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas (1200m) in the mud on May 3.

Two weeks later they were just a length off Havana when second in the Group 3 Fred Best Classic (1350m), a race they would have won had the winner not got a gun run up the rails.

Wood then was thrilled to see Into The Red finally get a draw of their own for their Ipswich debut in the Eye Liner Stakes where they will run instead of in the three-year-old Cooney Handicap where they were given 59kg.

“He seems to get weighted on potential not results. But getting a good alley is a bit unusual for him,” Wood said.

They’ve drawn barrier two in the Eye Liner and will be ridden by Jason Taylor who replaces Chris Munce.

Munce has opted to partner with the Chris Waller-trained QTC Cup runner-up Masthead who is out wide in barrier 12 but paying $5 as the close second favourite in Eye Liner Stakes betting.

Eye Liner Stakes odds are currently led by the rails-drawn Black Cash ($4.80) who was fourth in the QTC Cup last start.

Into The Red meanwhile is also at single figures occupying the third line of betting at $7, Taylor’s ride getting in on the 54kg minimum which is three kilos less than their weight last time out.

They were an emergency for the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) last weekend and wouldn’t have been far off them had they got a run according to Wood.
