IPSWICH MIDWEEK PREVIEW - WED, JAN 30

Jan 29, 2019

Trainer Chris Munce believes the quick back-up will prove no issue for PONY POWER as the filly looks to get back into the winner's circle at Ipswich tomorrow.

After scoring her second career win at the Gold Coast a month ago, the Foxwedge filly has finished fourth and seventh at her two latest outings when stepping up in distance to 1350m at Doomben.

But with fitness on her side, Munce believes a seven-day back-up will be an advantage for PONY POWER in tomorrow's Class 2 Handicap (1350m). 

The stable also has CONSTANTINE dropping back from Saturday Metropolitan grade but stepping up in distance in the BenchMark 80 Hcp (2190m).

Chris previews both runner's chances below:

Ipswich: Ipswich Turf Club Wednesday 30, January 2019 | View race field

Race 2 - 1:53PM SCHWEPPES BenchMark 80 Handicap (2190 METRES)
ColoursNo. / Horse Name / BarrierJockeyWeight
3. Constantine (3)Larry Cassidy    56.5kg

TRAINER COMMENTS: "He goes into unchartered territory up in distance but being back in grade, it looks a nice race for him. If he can relax and find his rhythm in the run, I'd like to think he'll finish off his race strongly but we'll certainly know more after tomorrow."


Race 5 - 3:38PM CHANNEL SEVEN Class 2 Handicap (1350 METRES)
ColoursNo. / Horse Name / BarrierJockeyWeight
8. Pony Power (7)Michael Murphy    55kg

TRAINER COMMENTS: "I think the quick back-up will be an advantage for her. She's drawn a bit awkward but the 1350m shoot isn't a bad start. She should be fit enough by now to run a strong 1350m and she's done well since last Wednesday to suggest she'll handle the back-up ok."
