Too Good To Refuse Tops 2016 Gunsynd Classic Odds

Locally-trained Brisbane youngster Too Good To Refuse is early favourite to win his first Black-Type title in Saturday’s Gunsynd Classic 2016 at Doomben Racecourse on Victory Stakes Day.

The second of two Group features on the card, this year’s $125,000 Group 3 Antec Gunsynd Classic (1630m) is due to run as Doomben Race 7 at 3:47pm (AEST).

The race is a traditional lead-up to the $600,000 Group 1 Queensland Derby (2400m) at Eagle Farm on Stradbroke Handicap Day in June and has attracted a final field of 14 three-year-olds.

Drawn wide out in gate 12 but still the one to beat according to the bookies sitting top of the Gunsynd Classic odds at paying $4.50 for the win is the Desleigh Forster-trained Rothesay colt Too Good To Refuse.

He comes off a win over 1625m at Toowoomba from April 16 and jockey Ryan Wiggins stays aboard here with the horse shooting for his third win from six starts at the Doomben track.

Close second favourite in the Gunsynd Classic betting markets at $4.80 is the fellow Forster-trained Cylinder Beach drawn better in barrier four for hoop Michael Cahill.

Showcasing gelding Cylinder Beach saluted as the $1.14 favourite last start at the track and distance back in November last year.

That victory was a runaway seven length success that proved the youngster’s ability over a mile and likely further.

As a two-year-old he was third in the Group 2 BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1350m) beaten only 1.5 lengths as a $101 roughie before a brave fourth to the since retired Press Statement when just over two lengths off the Chris Waller-trained winner in the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) also run at Eagle Farm.

From two first-up runs to date the New Zealand-bred Cylinder Beach has twice run third, but will be out to win on the weekend.

Forster also saddles-up a third single figure hope with I’m Belucci ($9) jumping from gate eight with apprentice Luke Dittman retaining the ride on the Group 1 performer.

A son of Captain Sonador, the smart colt failed to make an impression when dead last crossing 14th to Tarzino in Sydney’s Rosehill Guineas (2000m) last month, but improved when he returned home to finish second over 2020m at Doomben on March 26.

The two other hopes under $10 in Gunsynd Classic betting are Tap This ($7) and Havasay ($8.50) drawn at opposite ends of the field in barriers two and 13 respectively.

Peter & Paul Snowden prepare Tapit filly Tap This, the promising grey out to improve on her eighth in the Group 3 James Carr Stakes (1400m) at Randwick a fortnight back.

Havasay meanwhile is locally trained by Eagle Farm’s Liam Birchley, the Rothesay gelding coming off a second to Saturday’s favourite Too Good To Refuse.

The next best in betting at more generous odds for the upset are Shotacross The Bow ($11) who ran third to Too Good To Refuse at Toowoomba and the consistent Bryan Guy-trained Gold Coast galloper Eagle Way ($13) who is two-from-two over the distance.

John O’Shea’s Sydney raider Miami Dade and the Clarry Conners-trained Group 3 winning filly Dawnie Perfect follow on $14 each just ahead of the early market mover Snapper ($18 into $15) for Gold Coast trainer John Morrisey shooting for a third win on the trot.
