New Routine Set to Help Vandalised in 2014 Lough Neagh Stakes

Rockhampton champion Vandalised is bringing his best form to Brisbane on Saturday as the six-year-old gelding makes his final preparations for the Listed Lough Neagh Stakes (1350m) at Doomben Racecourse.

Vandalised returns to Doomben after running eighth in the Listed Tattersall’s Mile Handicap (1600m) during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival however the gelding remains unbeaten in his past 11 starts in central Queensland, seeming to relish his new home track after moving north from Victoria two years ago.

After being spelled for three months following the Tattersall’s Mile Handicap in June, Vandalised won two handicap races in Rockhampton, where he carried 62kg and 63kg. He’s in for a treat on Saturday when he’ll carry the minimum weight of 54kg in the 2014 Lough Neagh Stakes, which is a drop of nine kilos from his last start.

Vandalised will jump from barrier seven with Brad Stewart to ride in the Lough Neagh Stakes, for which the gelding is a $12 shot in the betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au. His price has shortened from his opening price of $26 but he remains a great betting prospect just outside the single digits.

Trainer James McConarchy believes Vandalised has what it takes to win outside of Rockhampton, with a new routine the key to his success on Saturday.

“Both times he came to Brisbane he has been at the end of his campaigns. This time we have changed his routine a bit and brought him down earlier,” McConachy told Sky Racing.

“It will also be only his third run back from a spell. He should be peaking now.

“I would love Brisbane punters to see him at his best.

“He probably would be better suited at Eagle Farm with the longer straight but we have to run him on Saturday to keep him ticking over.”

The trainer also noted that the $100,000 Sunshine Coast Cup (1400m) on January 26 is Vandalised main target.
