Warhorse Kincaple Tackles PB Lawrence Stakes 2014

Veteran galloper Kincaple may be the old horse in the 2014 PB Lawrence Stakes field for Saturday but their new trainer Mark Webb is keen to see how they handle the racing in Melbourne after a stable transfer.

The nine-year-old started their career in Victoria back in 2008 but has raced exclusively in Western Australia since the winter of 2011 featuring highly up the Ladbrokes.com.au markets a number of times.

In Perth with Mark Reed the honest stayer enjoyed plenty of good form including a 2011 Kalgoorlie Cup win.

They also won the Group 3 Strickland Stakes last year at Belmont Park with trainer Adam Durrant.

Their last four runs produced mixed form at Ascot during the Perth Summer Racing Carnival but were headlined by their close second behind Ihtsahymn in the Group 2 CB Cox Stakes (2100m) in December.

Their latest start was a disappointing 13th behind Black Tycoon in the Group 2 Perth Cup (2400m) on New Years’ Day where they had barrier 16 of 16 to overcome.

Originally to be aimed at the Adelaide Cup over the two miles at Morphettville in March, a bout of travel sickness saw their autumn plans shelved.

A Cranbourne trial last week showed they were ready to return off a lengthy let-up however when second over 1190m.

“He has had a good and long preparation and is now set for his campaign,” Webb told The West Australian.

“His trackwork has been really good and he has had a couple of good trials.”

Webb then has them dually nominated for Caulfield Racecourse on Saturday, a track they’ve raced at just once before.

They are entered for an $80,000 mile handicap on the card where they are the 60kg topweight but Webb has confirmed they will be accepted in the day’s marquee race, the $200,000 Group 2 P.B. Lawrence Stakes (1400m) where Ladbrokes.com.au is offering a money back bonus bet if your horse runs second.

Dwayne Dunn is booked for the ride where Kincaple will appreciate the 59kg meeting the field equal under the weight-for-age conditions.

It is a race they are going to have to be at their very best to perform well in with lots of classy rivals including the Chris Waller-trained Group 1 champion Foreteller, defending PB Lawrence Stakes winner Puissance De Lune and David Hayes’ classy import Spillway who has 2014 Caulfield Cup ambitions.

The $3 million Group 1 BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) back at the track on October 18 is also a possible Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival target for Kincaple.

Plenty of water has to flow under the bridge between now and Caulfield Cup Day however and Webb said they would be taking their campaign on a race-by-race basis.

“We have mapped out three paths – high, medium and low, and we should know by his second or third assignments where we are at,” Webb said.

“He is not fully wound up for a first-up run, but give him a few runs into his prep and we should see what he can do.

“He is an old horse under a lot of management and his best will be up around 2000m.”

The bookies aren’t rating their Caulfield Cup chances at this stage with Kincaple installed as a $151 roughie in the futures markets at Ladbrokes.com.au that will firm when first declarations for the world’s richest mile and a half handicap close on September 9.
