Ryan’s 2015 Hobart Cup Lads Draw Wide

Longford-based horseman Bill Ryan will saddle-up two hopes in Monday’s Hobart Cup 2015 but both his consistent mare Iggimacool and stablemate Genuine Lad have come up with outside gates in the Tasmanian Summer Racing Carnival classic.

There are 13 stayers in the field for this year’s $225,000 Group 3 Hobart Cup (2400m), with Ryan’s two hopes Iggimacool and Genuine Lad drawn in barriers 12 and 11 respectively.

Both are in-form and look a solid chance to beat home the likes of 59kg top weight Geegees Blackflash who won the race back in 2012, the Scott Brunton-trained Banca Mo who will need to behave in the gates and the nicely-drawn Ollie’s Gold on the rails for trainer Gary White.

They will however be likely drifters in the early Hobart Cup odds around the country after the disastrous barrier draw, which Ryan was surprisingly calm about.

“We would have preferred to have drawn closer in but now the riders will have to adapt to what we’ve been given,” he told TasRacing.

Iggimacool is a Brendon McCoull mount, the premiership-winning hoop aboard for her three most recent runs, in the second widest gate.

The four-year-old daughter of Savoire Vivre however up over the mile and a half for the first time.

Her longest distanced win to date is 2100m but whether she can stretch out and get further will be key to her chances as she’s also a known sprint performer.

Her latest win was at Launceston on New Year’s Eve over the mile where she defeated a very handy field including fellow Hobart Cup rivals Banca Mo (2nd) and Geegees Blackflash (34d).

She was last seen here at Hobart on January 25 running a somewhat disappointing fifth when beaten over seven lengths by the John Luttrell-trained veteran Geegees Blackflash in the $50,000 Summer Cup (2200m).

Genuine Lad also comes via a run in that race but was far more impressive for the Ryan stable.

The four-year-old Ladoni gelding won three on the trot last winter on the synthetic track at Devonport and returned for a spring – summer campaign that has so far resulted in four thirds and two seconds from six starts since November.

It’s been a frustrating string of minor placings then for the galloper including his Summer Cup performance when just a nose off the winner.

He drops from 58kg that day to the 54kg minimum however for Monday and so looks a big hope to turn the tables on Geegees Blackflash, drawn in barrier three for the rematch, with jockey Anthony Darmanin retaining the ride on Genuine Lad.
