Yesterday’s Songs Overs In Eye Liner Stakes Betting 2017

Brisbane jockey Michael Cahill believes his mount in Saturday’s 2017 Eye Liner Stakes at Ipswich Yesterday’s Songs is an underrated chance and the punters agree with the Victorian galloper firming in the markets.

A six-year-old son of Henrythenavigator prepared at Flemington by Michael Moroney, Yesterday’s Songs opened at $10 through Ladbrokes.com.au in markets on this year’s $175,000 Listed Eye Liner Stakes (1350m).

The galloper has since firmed into $8.50 to take out the Ipswich Cup Day sprint and is getting closer to the price Cahill believes the horse should be paying to win.

Cahill comes aboard in place of Patrick Moloney having chased the ride on Yesterday’s Songs, the horse racing at Ipswich Racecourse for the first time.

“We really chased the ride because this gelding has come from some really good form races and I am sure he can win the Eye Liner,” Cahill told Racenet.

Two back Moroney’s five-time winner was runner-up to Tashbeeh as a $31 roughie at home narrowly beaten in the Listed The Straight Six (1200m).

Last time out the horse caught the eye as a $12 shot finishing under three lengths back for fifth behind Deploy at Doomben on June 3 in the Group 2 Moreton Cup (1200m).

The step-up to 1350m on Saturday should suit and the drop in grade also works to the advantage of the gelding who has decent form on wet going, which he’ll see at Ipswich.

“I think he is a better chance than what they have him in the market,” Cahill said on Thursday.

“He is also good enough on soft ground and I’m sure he will be very tough to beat at Ipswich.”

It is shaping-up as a big Ipswich Cup Day for Cahill who six rides across the card including one in all three of the scheduled stakes races.

The first of those is aboard the David Brideoake-trained Self Sense in the $175,000 Listed Ipswich Cup (2150m), while his day ends in the $100,000 Listed Gai Waterhouse Classic (1250m) on the Matthew Dale-trained Magnus mare Hermosa Beach.

“I think Ipswich is a track that really benefits riders who have good local knowledge and I will be looking to draw on my experiences riding there over the years,” Cahill said.

Six-year-old Self Sense is on the seven day back-up looking to atone for a second last (13th) in the Group 2 Brisbane Cup (2200m) at Doomben last weekend.

Ipswich Cup odds have the horse at $10 for the upset, the proven Heavy track performer (5-2-1-1) drawn well in barrier two on the 54kg minimum.

“Self Sense looks a fairly dour type, from his runs in Victoria, and I think you have to overlook his Brisbane Cup run when he was well beaten but the race was not run to suit,” Cahill said.

As for his ride in the last, Hermosa Beach is a $17 roughie in Gai Waterhouse Classic betting after her disappointing run on a Good (4) Brisbane track in the Listed Helen Coughlan Stakes (1200m) a fortnight back.

“I have gone back through the runs of Hermosa Beach and I was really impressed by her effort in the Wagga Town Plate [when third over 1200m on May 4],” Cahill said.
