Sincero May Not Target Stradbroke

Three year old sensation Sincero may not be headed to the Stradbroke, with trainer Stephen Farley saying that his horse is a 50-50 chance for the Stradbroke Handicap.

“He’s a 50-50 chance for the Stradbroke. I’m looking at the Guineas as well,” said Farley.

Sincero battled away to finish 11th in the QTC Cup at Eagle Farm on the weekend, although Farley could see merit in his colts race.

“At the end of the day he was beaten 4 ½ lengths, not ten.” Farley said.

Farley went on to say that he would await the results of blood tests before deciding on which race Sincero will be entered in on Saturday.

Sincero was a $3.30 favourite for the QTC Cup, however he got caught in between horses along the fence and never looked like seriously troubling them in the home straight.

“He appeared uncomfortable and was squeezed up when going for a run at the 200m. It was a bit disappointing but we’ve left a little bit in the tank,” said Farley.

If Sincero is to be targeted at the Stradbroke Handicap, he will be without the services of proven Group One jockey Glen Boss, who decided against riding at the Stradbroke meeting, instead preferring to stick with his original plan of heading to Singapore.

Brisbane jockey Jason Taylor will pick up the ride on Sincero in the Stradbroke Handicap if that is the way that Stephen Farley decides to go. Interestingly, only jockey Chris O’Brien has been able to get the horse to win.

Going into the QTC Cup Sincero was a pre-post favourite for the Stradbroke at $5.00. After his performance on Saturday he is now a $9.00 chance to win the Stradbroke. Doomben 10,000 winner Beaded remain favourite for the Group One handicap at $5.00, while dual defending champion Black Piranha and 10,000 runner up Love Conquers All are at $7.00.
