Hayes gives all 3 runners a chance in Winter Championship Series Final

Lindsay Park’s head trainer David Hayes is not ruling out the chances of all his three runners in the Listed $150,000 VRC-CRV Winter Championship Series Final (1600m) at Flemington on Saturday.

Hayes along with his training partners, his son Ben Hayes and nephew Tom Dabernig, will saddle up veteran Jaquinot Bay, the in-form Cool Chap and the front running Mihany in the 1600m feature on Finals Day.

Ten year old Jacquinot Bay is still racing with the zest of a much younger horse and Hayes admits that the veteran has been in work continuously for at least two years.

Hayes is proud of the fact that Jacquinot Bay never runs a bad race and is lining up in the Winter Championship Series Final as a last start winner over 1600m at The Valley with seconds at his two previous starts over 1800m at Flemington and over 1600m at Caulfield.

“Flying the old horse,” David Hayes said.

“I think he has been in work two years now, never runs a bad race and I can’t see how he will run a bad race.”

“And if it rains he will be very hard to beat.”

Cory Parish rides Jacquinot Bay who drew barrier seven in the original draw of sixteen plus four emergencies and will move in two spots if all the reserves fail to gain a start in the final line up.

Cool Chap drew barrier eight in the original draw with Andrew Mallyon to ride and Hayes is also giving the five year old a great chance of figuring in the finish.

Cool Chap was tested against some tough opposition during the Autumn Carnival and wasn’t far off the mark with a second to multip[le Group 1 winner and Cox Plate runner up Humidor in the Group 2 $200,000 Blamey Stakes (1600m) at Flemington followed by a sixth to Happy Clapper in the Group 1 $3m The Star Doncaster Mile (1600m) at Randwick.

“Back in class for Cool Chap. His work at Lindsay Park has been excellent and if he runs to his Blamey form when he nearly beat Humidor, he will be very to beat,” Hayes said.

The stable’s third runner is the front running Mihany who might be able to get his own way in front from barrier one with Noel Callow to ride.

Mihany has set the pace at three of his last four starts which resulted in two seconds and a third and includes a last start second to Magic Consol in a 1600m Handicap at The Valley on June 16.

“He will go forward and if he gets a bit of peace in front, he is always hard to catch. He is just vulnerable when he gets taken on in front.”

Cool Chap is the most fancies of the Lindsay Park runners in the betting for the Winter Championship Series Final and is marked at $10 with Ladbrokes.com.au ahead of Jacquinot Bay at $16 while Mihany is the outsider of the trio at $21.

The Darren Weir trained Ozi Choice sits at the top of the market order at $4.40 ahead of Magic Consol at $6, Morton’s Fork at $7 and Moss ‘N’ Dale and Silentz at $8.
