Trinder’s trio ready for key assignments in Hobart on Sunday

Trainer Adam Trinder has produced two exciting two-year-olds this season in Bello Beau and Jaguar Stone, but he has sent them in different directions to avoid clashing in feature races.

In Brief

  • Bello Beau has done well since his impressive debut win last month.
  • Miss Tuppence thrown in at deep end in Lady Lynette.
  • Miss Charlie Brown expected to improve in Thousand Guineas over 1600m.

Bello Beau will have his second start in the $100,000 Listed The Mills New Norfolk Elwick Stakes over 1100 metres in Hobart on Sunday while Jaguar Stone will stay at home as her main mission is the Gold Sovereign Stakes over 1200m in Launceston next month.

Bello Beau's only start was in Hobart where he led throughout from an inside gate, but Trinder says the gelded son of Brazen Beau is most likely a better horse ridden back in the field.

"We took Bello Beau to Hobart to acquaint him with the track and when he drew barrier one, we opted to lead and he got the job done," Trinder said.

"I didn't want him to find himself buried back in the field on the fence, so he led, but I am confident he is a better horse with a sit, and he will probably get the chance to show that on Sunday."

Jason Maskiell will ride Bello Beau owing to Brendon McCoull being sidelined with a knee injury.

The logical danger to Bello Beau is the Stuart Gandy-trained Gee Gee Jet By that won his first two before finishing second to Bello Beau last start.

Ella Exceeds won a maiden last start after finishing second to Gee Gee Jet By on debut, so she must be considered along with Remuda and Piink Beauty.

Trinder has thrown his three-year-old filly Miss Tuppence in at the deep end as she will line up in the $50,000 Unique Doors & Windows Lady Lynette over 1100 metres.

Miss Tuppence showed her class last season in feature races and this season she has won three of her past four starts, the latest in Devonport where she came from last at the top of the straight to defeat Bandinelli over 1009m in a benchmark 76 handicap.

"Our options with Miss Tuppence were limited because she is best suited to the sprint journeys, so this race will give us an idea on whether she could step up to the Group 3 Bow Mistress over 1200m."

Miss Tuppence has drawn wide so rider Troy Baker will be hoping to slot her into the back half of the field and hopefully with cover. Deroche is topweight with 60kg, but she is rated so far ahead of the rest of the field she gets in well at the weights and has the early brilliance to find the front from gate 10, if connections want her to lead.

Thunberg, Boom Dot Com, Reite Den Blitz and Jaja Chaboogie appear as strong each-way chances.

Trinder also saddles up Miss Charlie Brown in the Kevin Sharkie Thousand Guineas over 1600m and this is the race in which he expects his daughter of Myboycharlie to shine.

"I was happy with her preparation until last start where she didn't run on as I expected her to in a fillies and mares race over 1400m in Hobart.

"I thought she star-gazed a bit in the home straight and Brendon (McCoull) reported that after the race, so I'm hoping stepping up to 1600m and having had that run on the Elwick track will help her improve."
