Alma’s Fury Heads 2014 Glasshouse Handicap Odds

After a close win at Ipswich a fortnight ago the bookies have the Tony Gollan-trained Alma’s Fury installed as the narrow favourite again for Saturday’s Glasshouse Handicap 2014 at the Sunshine Coast.

The Refuse To Bend six-year-old improved on a first-up seventh to Sacred Star in the Group 2 QTC Cup (1300m) at Eagle Farm to win the Listed Eye Liner Stakes (1350m) at Ipswich on June 14.

It was a tight finish there with Alma’s Fury hanging on by a nose to defeat Masthead before Playitstraight crossed for a distant third.

The Eye Liner winner is then top fancy to make it back-to-back Queensland Winter Racing Carnival wins this weekend when they back up in the $175,000 Listed Reed Property Group Glasshouse Handicap (1400m).

Drawn in barrier 11 of 16 with the experienced Jim Byrne staying on, Alma’s Fury carries the 59.5kg top weight in the handicap clash which is a half kilo more than their Eye Liner Stakes winning weight.

They are followed in the Glasshouse Handicap odds by three other single figure fancies with:

  • #7 Black Cash ($5.50) – Kelly Doughty-trained Gold Coat gallop has a nice barrier four draw and gets in on 54kg minimum, that’s a kilo less than their Eye Liner weight where they finished a disappointing 12th after getting struck with multiple cases of interference, before that were trapped wide in the Group 2 QTC Cup (1300m) but managed to battle on and hit the front before just getting run down over the final 1000m to finish fourth, improvement expected here and with a clear run could be the one to beat
  • #8 Jetset Lad ($6.50) – In-form Brian Smith-trained six-year-olds has the inside alley with apprentice hoop Anthony Allen in the saddle, Allen was aboard last start in the Eye Liner when the Kiwi export had their first run for their new trainer down under finishing fourth, before that were fourth in a New Zealand Black Type over the mile in the mud so can handle if the rain comes at the Sunshine Coast
  • #10 Playitstraight ($7) – Eye Liner third placegetter was two and a half off the winner that day, the Foreplay gelding looking to improve third-up, also ran second first-up at Doomben and this distance looks ideal, will be fitter for those runs and have winning form up to a mile in the Ballina Cup from last September

Also in the mix under $20 are then the like of the Kelso Wood-trained veteran Belltone ($13), Eye Liner seventh placed Startsmeup ($13) and local Lonhro five-year-old Escoffier ($13) last seen running third over 1400m at Eagle Farm last weekend.

The early Glasshouse Handicap betting market mover now into $21 meanwhile is Spitfire Lady drawn in barrier eight with Jason Taylor to ride, Michael Moroney’s visiting Hussonet four-year-old coming off a fourth to Jazz Song in the Listed Gai Waterhouse Classic (1350m) at Ipswich two weeks back.
