Wil­liams tips geld­ing to fire up for sprint

The Weekend Post - - Racing -

JOR­DAN GERRANS search­ing for ac­tu­ally,” Wil­liams said.

“He was only knocked off on the post and our jockey Nathan Day reck­ons if we put the blink­ers on, he will be good enough to be win­ning.

“He was un­der pres­sure over the 1200m last start but will en­joy the 950m at Cairns. His best form is at the 1000m.”

Lad­brokes listed Mo­lon­gle Fire as a $4.40 chance yes­ter­day af­ter­noon with Grey Mis­sile, from the Tolga yard of Roy Chillemi, the pub­lic elect at $3.20.

Grey Mis­sile, a last start win­ner at Townsville, is likely to be in the trav­el­ling party as the Chillemi sta­ble sends a hand­ful of horses to Bris­bane later this month.

Queens­land Thor­ough­bred In­cen­tive Scheme re­wards own­ers and breed­ers of horses bred in this state through bonuses when they win or are placed in spe­cific races.

From 2019, the 3YO Jewel will rise to $165,000 while QTIS-el­i­gi­ble horses will race for a QTIS Dou­ble Stakes Bonus.
