Lady Sniper Set to Shoot in Inglis Classic 2015

Brisbane-based hoop Larry Cassidy travels to Sydney this Saturday to partner a promising filly from the Beaudesert stables of Tony Crane, Lady Sniper up in class for a shot at the 2015 Inglis Classic riches at Rosehill Gardens.

Experienced senior Queensland jockey Cassidy has picked up a host of good Rosehill rides for the weekend’s meet, the most he’s had on a Saturday in Sydney since he was based in NSW many years ago.

His reason for the trip south however is Crane booking him to partner up-and-coming Snippetson two-year-old Lady Sniper.

After breaking her maiden status at start number three back home at Beaudesert in impressive style on January 25, Crane and connections are keen to test the filly in better company.

To do that, she makes the trip to Sydney for the lucrative sales-restricted $250,000 Inglis Classic (1200m), which runs as Race 4 at Rosehill on Saturday.

Eleven qualified juveniles make up the Inglis Classic field on the weekend, the favourites of which at are the rails-drawn Serenade ($2.60) for Michael Moroney and the Rodney Northam-trained Snitzel colt Odyssey Moon ($3) who won the Inglis Nursery at Randwick in December.

Lady Sniper meanwhile can be found further down the Inglis Classic odds at $15, the fellow last-start champ having beaten home Good To Be Great by one and a quarter lengths when Cassidy rode her to victory in a 2YO Maiden late last month.

While it is a notable stretch from the class of that race to Saturday’s Classic, Cassidy rates his mount a credible chance in what is obviously not one of the most imposing field of Sydney two-year-olds heading into the autumn.

“It’s a big step up but it’s also not the hardest two-year-old race of the Sydney two-year-old races,” Cassidy told Sky Sports Radio’s Racing HQ on Thursday.

The jockey also said that the key to success would be getting the hot-headed filly to settle.

“She’s a nice big filly but she gets herself a bit stirred up,” he said.

“Hopefully that first-up run will take the edge off her.

“We’ve been trying to get her to settle, she wants to go very hard.”

Cassidy though remained confident she was a filly to watch and that from the nice barrier four draw she would be competitive on the weekend in her interstate debut.

“She jumps and wants to get going so we’ll be right behind the speed,” he said.

“The trip away will really make her, it will be the making of her.”

Cassidy’s other key Rosehill rides on the weekend include the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Marianne in the Group 2 NSW Thoroughbred Breeders Classic (1200m), the Darci Brahma mare coming off a good first-up third at Randwick on a Firm (2) track, and Lucky Sound in the seventh.

Lining up from the inside alley in the $85,000 Hong Kong Racecourse Owners Association Trophy (1200m), Bradbury’s Luck six-year-old Lucky Sound is also prepared by Crane and comes off a narrow Doomben win in the wet from four weeks ago.

“His win was on a very heavy track and he was not totally at home on it,” Cassidy said.

“He’s a really good, honest horse and the barrier will be a big help to him.

“He will put himself right into it and is a great, big, friendly giant.”
