2015 Daybreak Lover Stakes Bid for Bachman

Sydney’s Gerald Ryan has confirmed plans to run his progressive colt Bachman in the Daybreak Lover Stakes 2015 at the Gold Coast Saturday week after the youngster put in a good effort in Group 2 company on Stradbroke Handicap Day in Brisbane last weekend.

All American three-year-old Bachman has won two of his 13 starts to date and was unlucky not to come away with a feature Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival success in the Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1600m) over the Doomben mile last Saturday after getting held-up midway down the straight.

Third behind Gai Waterhouse’s class filly Najoom in the Group 3 Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m) as a 20/1 shot at Rosehill back on May 9, Bachman ran a disappointing next-up 13th of 16 runners when five lengths off Upham in the Group 3 Grand Prix Stakes (2020m) in his maiden Queensland run.

Failing to see out the distance that day he improved next time out when dropped back in distance for the Guineas where, back to 20/1 odds, he finished one and a quarter lengths away second to the upset winner Jabali.

Bachman hasn’t won a race since the Group 3 The Schweppervescence (1400m) in April last year, a drought Ryan is hoping he can break when he heads to the Gold Coast Racecourse on June 20 for a Tattersall’s Tiara Day run.

After ruling out his Glenlogan Park Stakes winning mare Peace Force from the $500,000 Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) due to an ongoing eye injury, Ryan still has two in the mix for the final Group 1 of the season including multiple elite level placegetter Solicit.

He also confirmed on Wednesday morning plans for Bachman to join his mares at the meeting with the lucrative $150,000 Listed Daybreak Lover Stakes (1800m) against a field of fellow three-year-olds on his agenda.

“He’ll go to the three-year-old listed race over 1800-metres on Tiara day,” Ryan told Racenet.

Ryan’s also spoke of plans not to target September’s Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) with his up-and-coming juvenile Spill The Beans despite the Snitzel colt’s impressive weekend win.

A successful two length winning debut at Gosford on May 14 was followed with a trip to Royal Randwick last Saturday where Spill The Beans narrowly held on to win over 1100m.

He will now head to the paddock undefeated but at this stage won’t return for an early autumn bid chasing Golden Rose glory, instead coming back later for a shot at something like the $100,000 Listed Brian Crowley Stakes (1200m) at Randwick towards the end of October.

“He’ll have a month off now,” Ryan said.

“I won’t go to the Golden Rose with him. He’ll come back for one run later in the Sydney carnival then head to Melbourne.

“A race like the Brian Crowley would probably suit him here first-up.”

To get behind Ryan’s end-of-season contingent in the Sunshine State over the next couple of weeks at the best possible prices make sure you’ve got an account open online with Ladbrokes.com.au – home of the $500 bonus welcome bet offer for new depositing players!
