Wallace Shooting For Eagle Farm Cup

Trainer John Wallace believes Shoot Out can rediscover his best form when he lines up in the Group Two Eagle Farm Cup on Saturday.

Shoot Out will be looking to rediscover his best in the Eagle Farm Cup

Shoot Out has not won since claiming the Liston Stakes over 1400m at Caulfield last year, which has led some to speculate that the horse is not a true stayer, despite his win in the 2010 AJC Derby.

Shoot Out finished well down the track in both the TJ Smith and All Aged Stakes. He was then expected to perform in the Hollindale Stakes but was soundly beaten again. His last start was in the Doomben Cup, where he was met with solid support but failed to fire again. Not that it bothered Wallace.

“He hit the line strongly, and he could be looking for further and a bigger track too,” said Wallace who placed the blame for Shoot Out’s defeat squarely on the shoulders of jockey Corey Brown.

“I was very disappointed, and I thought he lost the race on the home turn.

“He got beat one and half lengths and you could have drove a truck up the middle of the track, and we ended up off the track.” Wallace said.

Brisbane jockey Glen Colless will now take over riding duties on Shoot Out.

Despite the fact that Shoot Out’s from line reads like binary code without the 1’s, Wallace remains confident his horse is on track for a change in fortunes.

“There’s nothing wrong with the horse. He’s just been unlucky a few times.

“There’s only six runners on Saturday and I’m confident he’ll be hard to beat,” said Wallace.

Shoot Out is currently favourite for the 2200m Eagle Farm Cup at $3.00, while Glass Harmonium is $3.20 and dual Doomben Cup winner Scenic Shot is $3.50.
