Brisbane Best - April 22

Guard Of Honour heads north for trainer Kris Lees and will line up in the Mick Dittman Plate (1050m) at Doomben, following a freshen up off his Oakleigh Plate run.

Beginning the preparation with two placings, including a good effort when runner up in the Group 3 Eskimo Prince behind Man From Uncle, Guard Of Honour did not have a great deal of luck in the Oakleigh Plate when caught wide throughout.

Given 56 days since that effort, the three-year-old colt has since won a trial at Newcastle over 900m and will appreciate the drop in grade today.


Guard Of Honour rates well clear of his rivals on best form and despite the awkward draw today looks well placed to return to the winners circle.

Larry Cassidy takes the ride for the first time and the clear class horse of the race he looks very good value at $4.60.

The resuming All Over Bosanova looks the main danger, remaining undefeated from four career outings but she will more than likely have to improve to get the better of Guard Of Honour.

Brazen Moss will look to continue his strong recent form when he lines up in the Mandate Tails Quality (1600m) having won his last two outings.

Most recent came over this C/D after settling back in the small field but he is racing in terrific form of late and does his best here at Doomben.

His last start win rates well against his rivals today with the 54kg and currently, $7.50 represents terrific each way value.

Certainly takes on tougher company today but with the light weight would expect him to settle off midfield again and hit the line strongly as he has his last two outings.

Jim Byrne who has won 4/5 on board Brazen Moss will maintain the ride and the Tony Gollan stable has been in very good form recently.

Good Luck!

R6 DOOMBEN 22 April 2017
Mandate Mick Dittman Plate 3 , 1050m
Race Synopsis: The Tony Gollan-trained filly Tiyatrolani scored a narrow but good first up win, her first stakes success in nine starts to date. She began well and settled nicely in fourth place, got a split on straightening going to second shortly afterwards. She went to the front at the 100m and then fought back to score in photo. River Racer settled at the tail of the 14-horse field, got between runners rounding the home turn going to sixth at the 200m. She then kept running on well, failing only narrowly for a late-closing second. Ringo’s A Rockstar settled in sixth place on the rails from his good barrier (2). He got a split at the home turn, took a narrow lead at the 200m and then kept battling on well for a close up third. The favourite Guard Of Honour was slowly away, was last early on before settling in second last place. He was blocked nearing the home turn and kept running on, in restricted room, to finish an untested and unlucky (3.7 lengths) seventh.
