Dalby Tips – January 14
Race 6 – 3:27PM PLOUGH INN CUP BEER GARDEN Colts, Geldings and Entires BENCHMARK 55 Handicap (1100 METRES)
Second-up today, WAIT A MINUTE may not have to wait any longer as the lightly-raced four-year-old looks well-placed here in this low graded event. The Tycoon Ruler gelding has had just five starts to date and at his second start, destroyed his maiden rivals at Toowoomba, winning the 1050m sprint by almost seven lengths. Ironically, he finished last at his next two starts, giving trainer Matt Cropp no choice but to spell him. Resuming from that spell, he lined up at Warwick in a Class 1 over 1100m and although drawing a good gate, was still trapped three-deep to the turn. On straightening, despite still being wide, he took the lead but his condition gave out in the final 50 metres where he finished second, beaten a long neck by Bridget’s Diary. He won second-up last preparation, no reason why he can’t do it again here, in what appears to be an easier assignment. Nathan Thomas takes the reins for the first time and he will be looking to cross early from barrier eight to find a sit mid-field or better. He has more weight to carry this time but looks the one to beat.
