Tattersall’s Cup 2020 Results: Brimham Rocks Wins for Waller

Chris Waller’s Group 1 placegetter Brimham Rocks was too strong for his rivals at Eagle Farm on Saturday getting home first in the 2020 Tattersall’s Cup results thanks to a lovely ride by jockey Ryan Maloney.

It had been a long time between drinks for the six-year-old son of Fastnet Rock, the import not having won a race since the Group 3 Naturalism Stakes (2000m) at Caulfield last September.

On the back of a ninth to stablemate Le Juge in an all-Waller first six in the Group 3 Chairman’s at Doomben over 2000m on May 30, Brimham Rocks went around at $5 through Ladbrokes.com.au for the rematch at Eagle Farm in the Group 3 $175,000 Tattersall’s Cup (2400m).

Relishing the step-up in distance to the mile and a half, Waller’s 2018 The Metropolitan runner-up had the ideal barrier drawn the fence in the Tattersall’s Cup and Maloney rode him beautifully from the gate.

Getting a soft run throughout, Ryan put Brimham Rocks into a lovely trailing position fourth the fence as the predicted front runner Kubis led the field around.

Popping out into the clear once on the straight, Brimham Rocks was able to charge home getting the lead 250m out and running home strongly for a good win.

In a photo for the minors, Waller celebrated another dominant victory preparing the first four over the line with Savacool (2nd), Shraaoh (3rd) and the Chairman’s winner Le Juge (4th).

“It looked a really good race for him he was one of probably two or three genuine proven stayers in the field, fourth up he was really hitting peak fitness and from the gate got a beautiful run on the speed and he duely won well,” assistant trainer Paul Shailer told the media post-win.

“Excellent ride from Ryan (Maloney) the pace was only steady throughout, he stayed nice and close to it popped off the fence at the home turn and let the horse show his staying qualities.

“I thought Le Juge was very good again carrying a bit more weight and over 2400 metres Michael Cahill did a great job switching him off when he usually gets a bit keen.

“Shraaoh was as honest as ever she probably wants another race over this distance and Savacool ran right up to expectations, Brimham Rocks was just the superior stayer on the day.”

Another shot at the Group 1 $750,000 The Metropolitan (2400m) at Randwick on Epsom Handicap Day, October 3, could be on the cards this spring for Brimham Rocks who currently pays $34 in the all-in markets at Ladbrokes.com.au.
