Colac Tips February 10 - Our best selections for Colac Sunday

  • Adam Purcell gelding can win making Australian debut
Colac racing Sunday

It’s Colac Cup Day and I’m running with the odds here and going with Arron Purcell who has three runners engaged and he looks to have the race covered.

Race 7 - 4:50PM Australian Lamb Company Colac Gold Cup (2000 METRES) 
Warrnambool trainer Arron Purcell has three runners here and all of them have some credentials towards winning the cup today. One, however, sticks out to me, as he returns to the track from an eight-month break and a little lighter after being gelded as well. INSTIGATOR is not only returning from a lengthy spell but is also making his Australian debut after racing in Europe til now. He won his maiden on debut over 1800m as a three-year-old and a big future looked on the cards. However, he ‘jumped off the rails’ as a four-year-old and failed to fill a top three spot in all four of his races. Since then, he’s returned to Australia, spent eight months in the paddock and been gelded which could have made all the difference if we go by his recent trial performance. On a good track at Geelong, he took control at 100m mark and ran away with it in the end, winning the 1500m trial by a comfortable three lengths. His main danger appears to be last start winner Tarquin who showed a lot of fight to win at Caulfield in a 2000m Hcp. However, the Hard Spun gelding pays the penalty for returning to the country scene and will carry 8kgs more today (which is around half a grandstand extra). Instigator has 3.5kgs less to worry about and is ideally drawn in gate one. Sitting third on the National Jockey’s Premiership with 86 winners to date, Linda Meech jumps aboard for her first ride on Purcell’s gelding. If we go by his trial effort (which was only two weeks ago), he is right in the mix here.
