Tinto After The Championships Bid in Coolmore Classic 2015

Toowoomba trainer Rex Lipp is hoping his Queensland Oaks winner Tinto can earn a trip to next month’s The Championships with a good effort in Saturday’s 2015 Coolmore Classic at Rosehill Gardens.

The now four-year-old daughter of Red Dazzler is best known for her impressive one and a half-length victory over Arabian Gold, another Coomore Classic hope this weekend, in the Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) at Eagle Farm last Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

She has her first elite level test since this weekend when racing in Sydney for just the second time in the $600,000 Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m).

Her lead-up form into the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival’s fillies-and-mares’ classic is solid, giving Lipp some level of confidence coming up against the odds-on favourite First Seal.

She won back-to-back Queensland races in the summer with the Listed City Of Toowoomba Quality (1625m) at home in December and then the prestigious Magic Millions Stayers Cup (1800m) on the Gold Coast in January.

Last time out at Warwick Farm on February 28 she debuted in Sydney with a fast-finishing sixth, beaten just over three lengths by Danesiri in the Group 3 Guy Walter Stakes (1400m).

A proven stayer, Tinto was down in distance that day and Lipp is confident over more distance with a Sydney run now under her belt she can be competitive this weekend.

She’s been working well since the Guy Walter Stakes, stabled at Peter Moody’s Randwick base, and has done everything right so far.

“She’s good,” Lipp told The Chronicle.

“Everything is going forward with her and I couldn’t be happier with her at this stage.

“Her first-up run down here was enormous and we found out that day she is up to that level of horse.”

Lipp said yesterday he would like to see some rain fall in Sydney, and his prayers have been answered with recent wet weather pushing Rosehill down to a Soft (6) track on Friday.

“Some rain now would be nice,” he said.

“The track could be hard otherwise and she’s never had to race on hard tracks, but that is something we can’t control.”

Current Coolmore Classic betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au have John Thompson’s Group 1 winning First Seal, coming off an excellent Surround Stakes win, at an odds-on price of $1.75.

After that it’s a pretty wide open affair including Tinto who has firmed in from $17 to $16 following a nice barrier five draw, which last produced a Coolmore Classic winner in 2007 with the Gai Waterhouse-trained Tuesday Joy.

While heading home with their tail between their legs is a possibility, Lipp is hoping Tinto handles herself well in the Coolmore as she eyes a run during Randwick’s The Championships held over the first two Saturday’s in April.

Options remain wide open for the $740,000 earner as she is nommed for a host of feature races including the $3 million Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) on April 4, as well as both the $4 million Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) and $1 million Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) on April 11.

“We won’t know until after tomorrow where we might be headed next,” Lipp said.

“It could be the Doncaster, the Queen Elizabeth or Queen Of The Turf, or we could come home with our tail between our legs.”
