Kinshachi Up To Class of Gai Waterhouse Classic 2017

Before handing things over to James Cummings early next month, Godolphin’s interim trainer Darren Beadman is hoping for a few more stakes wins and rates the stable’s 2017 Gai Waterhouse Classic runner Kinshachi as a class chance at Ipswich this weekend.

Beadman’s biggest win since coming in for the powerhouse Godolphin operation happened last weekend with three-year-old Impending winning the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap in Brisbane.

This Saturday the Queensland Winter Racing Carnival action moves west for Ipswich Cup Day and there are five Beadman-trained runners accepted across the nine-race card.

The stable have two in the last when the fillies and mares take to the track in the $100,000 Listed Gai Waterhouse Classic (1350m), including co-$5.50 favourite in betting at Ladbrokes.com.au Kinshachi.

Sunshine Coast-based hoop Damian Browne makes the trip to Ipswich again on Saturday having won a treble of winners at the meeting in both 2015 and 2016.

Browne is booked to partner Commands four-year-old Kinshachi in the Gai Waterhouse Classic, the mare joined in the 16-starter line-up by stablemate Maternal.

Kinshachi has come up trumps with barrier three, while fellow four-year-old Maternal ($6.50) has work to do from the outside alley with Jeff Lloyd to ride the daughter of Street Cry.

Sharing the top line of Gai Waterhouse Classic betting with the Joe Pride-trained I Am Zelady, Kinshachi was last seen running under three lengths back sixth to Bonny O’Reilly in the Listed Helen Coughlan Stakes (1200m) at Doomben on June 3.

She is yet to win over further than 1250m so the distance on Saturday is a test, but this looks an easier race for her according to Beadman.

“Kinshachi’s run behind Bonny O’Reilly the other day was quite OK,” he told AAP.

“She was beaten less than three lengths and is probably down in grade a bit here.”

Kinshachi is also suited to the Heavy-rated Ipswich track boasting two wins and a second from her three previous starts on rain-affected courses, but does rise from 56kg last time out to the 59kg top weight this weekend.

“It looks like being another heavy track up there. She handles that and she’s up to this class,” Beadman added.

Early money has come in for Maternal despite her awkward alley and Beadman said she also handled the give out of the track, plus had an excellent four-from-five record over the distance.

“The wide draw isn’t a help but the fence might not be that good either. She’s got good gate speed and a top jockey in Jeff Lloyd,” he said.
