2016 Queensland Oaks Aim for Jacqui’s Joy

Co-trainer Mitchell Beer is hoping for another Caulfield win this weekend with progressive filly Jacqui’s Joy who could head to Brisbane this winter for a Queensland Oaks 2016 campaign.

Twenty-seven-year-old Beer trains out of a Mornington base in partnership with Max Hinton and the duo are aiming high with former New Zealand-trained three-year-old Real Saga filly Jacqui’s Joy this year.

The up-and-comer, who kicked off her career with four unplaced runs in New Zealand last year, posted her second win from as many starts to take her record to two wins from six runs with a Boxing Day win in Caulfield’s $80,000 Schweppes Handicap (1400m) late last month.

“She spelled in New Zealand and also spelled when she arrived here in Australia and from the moment she has come into work she hasn’t put a foot wrong and we haven’t had an issue with her,” Beer, who has held his trainers’ licence for just over a month, told AAP this week.

“She’s just thrived since arriving in Australia.”

She returns to the track this Saturday for a shot at more turf success in another three-years-old fillies Benchmark 70 over the same 1400m distance against a similar class to what she beat last time out.

“It looks like the same sort of bunch of horses on nominations and I think her run the other day at Caulfield to get home over the top of them off a slow tempo certainly makes us believe that her being a Saturday winner hopefully wasn’t a one-off,” Beer said.

Allocated equal top weight of 60kg along with the David Hayes & Tom Dabernig-trained daughter of Stratum Lahqa who comes off a third to Magna Rossa at Flemington over 1200m on New Year’s Day, Jacqui’s Joy will likely use an apprentice claim again on Saturday.

Apprentice Patrick Moloney has been aboard for her past two wins, including her break through victory over 1212m at Kilmore on December 1 and Beer’s first city win on December 26, but Harry Coffey takes over for the suspended Moloney in the saddle this weekend.

Coffey had a stellar Boxing Day at Caulfield breaking his stakes’ winning status with success aboard the Darren Weir-trained Tuscan Sling in the Listed Christmas Stakes (1200m) and stablemate Signoff one run later in the Listed Lord Stakes (1700m).

The Jacqui’s Joy – Coffey combination is one Beer is hoping pays off this weekend on the back of their good form a fortnight ago.

“Given the luck they both had last Saturday week, I think they’ll make the perfect combination at Caulfield,” he said.

While Beer is keen to extend Jacqui’s Joy up over 1600m soon, there were no suitable mile race this weekend leading to her acceptance for the 1400m clash.

He is tipping the filly to keep improving as she gets over more distance and is hoping she progresses into a livewire hope for the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival’s $500,000 Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2200m) at the end of May.

“It’s a long, long way away but winning a Saturday race at Caulfield was a long, long way away from a heavy 10 maiden in New Zealand,” he said.

“We’ll head towards that and see if we can get there.”
