● Eye Liner Stakes anal­y­sis

The Queensland Times - - News -

VERY lit­tle sep­a­rates the lead­ing con­tenders in Eye Liner Stakes bet­ting but it is Ty­zone ($4.40) that holds nar­row favouritism from Moss ‘N’ Dale ($4.80), Most Im­por­tant ($6), Lucky Hus­sler ($7) and Religify ($7.50). Lucky Hus­sler: Af­ter a cou­ple of false starts this prepa­ra­tion, he is set to re­turn. Lucky Hus­sler is the class horse in this field and on his best form he would bolt in. The ques­tion mark is whether he can pro­duce that sort of form first-up. Religify: Set to re­turn af­ter what has been a lengthy break. He is out­stand­ing value at his cur­rent price of $7.50. The Choisir geld­ing has recorded three wins from his seven firstup starts. His re­cent bar­rier trial win at Rose­hill Gar­dens sug­gests that he is fairly for­ward for his re­turn to the races. Most Im­por­tant: Drops back in qual­ity af­ter be­ing out­classed in the Doomben 10,000, Kings­ford-Smith Cup and Strad­broke Hand­i­cap. He has won at this level in the past. The ques­tion is whether Mark Du Plessis can get him across from the wide bar­rier draw. Moss ‘N’ Dale: An ul­tra-con­sis­tent per­former. He re­turned to win­ning form with a classy per­for­mance at Flem­ing­ton last start. Char­lie Boy: Nar­rowly beaten in the Gold Coast Cup but has since failed to fire in the BRC Sprint and the Spear Chief. Bas­sett: Has raced fairly with­out look­ing like a win­ning chance in all of his starts this cam­paign. It has been a long time be­tween race wins for the Sav­abeel geld­ing. I’m A Rippa: The best backed run­ner in early Eye Liner Stakes mar­kets with Lad­brokes and it is easy to see why. He led from start to fin­ish to record a tough win in the BRC Sprint and he was only nar­rowly de­nied in the Spear Chief. Tougher than the rest: Failed to fire in two race starts since be­ing sent to Queens­land. He is a bet­ter horse than those per­for­mances sug­gest. Marenos­tro: The ex­treme out­sider has not been seen at the races since Septem­ber last year and dur­ing that cam­paign he looked like a shadow of the horse that he once was. Privlaka: Ca­pa­ble of a high-rat­ing per­for­mance and he ran well in both the Vic­tory Stakes and the BRC Sprint. He did have ex­cuses in the Spear Chief last start. Ty­zone: Recorded two wins on the trot and gets a wellde­served crack at black-type level. The horse is a proven win­ner but he does look un­der the odds in a race of this qual­ity. Cool­ring: Ran well in the Na­tional Sprint and scored a fast-fin­ish­ing win in the Wagga Town Plate but he was very poor at Doomben last start. Bushy: Comes out of a fairly plain ef­fort in the Spear Chief. He has been rac­ing well but un­likely to fea­ture.
