It’s all too easy for fast Ed­die

Sunday Tasmanian - - Sport - RAY THOMAS

EASY Ed­die made win­ning look easy at Rand­wick’s Kens­ing­ton meet­ing yes­ter­day.

With three scratch­ings, the field for the Au­tumn Car­ni­val On Sale Hand­i­cap (1150m) was re­duced to five starters with Easy Ed­die dom­i­nat­ing the bet­ting and then the race.

The Joe Pride-trained sprinter was sent out the $1.55 favourite and jus­ti­fied his short odds with a rou­tine win.

“That was pretty easy to watch,’’ Pride said.

“The thing about this horse is he has a cou­ple of pat­terns [can lead or set­tle just off the speed], he has gone on a dry track to­day so that ticks an­other box on his re­sume and he is very con­sis­tent.

“I think he has missed a place once in his last 11 starts.’’

Easy Ed­die scored his sev­enth ca­reer win at just his 18th start and took his prize­money to nearly $350,000 when he strolled home nearly two lengths clear of In­tu­ition ($3.60) with Ever So Nat­u­ral ($20) a half length away third.
