Inference Impresses In Guineas

By Brad Gray

Courtesy of a brave paint-scraping ride from Tommy Berry, Inference took out the Group One Randwick Guineas after settling last in the run.

The son of So You Think was a work in progress last campaign but now he’s worked out the racing caper, he is going to take plenty of beating going into the Rosehill Guineas and Australian Derby.

It was the win of a high class colt

“Second-up today at a mile and especially on this bog track, I said to Tommy, ‘if you’re going to win it will be the last 100m, just be patient.’ The rest is history,” said co-trainer Michael Hawkes.

“For this bloke, he has a lot of untapped potential. He went ever so close in the Victoria Derby.

“The best part about this horse is we trained his Mum (Pontiana) and she had a lot of potential.”

Berry squeezed onto the outside of a very game Invincible Gem to prevail in the $1 million three-year-old feature.

“I was always going to go to the inside of Brenton (Avdulla on Invincible Gem) but I would’ve had to change course on him and he’s not the type of horse you can change course and get going again,” Berry explained.

“I had such great momentum, it was very tight so I pulled the stick through to the right and pushed him up as close as I could to the outside fence.

“He’s always been a good horse this bloke. He’s so clean-winded, he’ll stay all day and the key to him today was switching off.”

Meanwhile, it was oh-so-close for Invincible Gem who has progressed from a Canterbury maiden to running second in a Group One all in the one preparation.

“She ran terrific, obviously she has come a long way. Just a bit heartbreaking to get beat like that,” lamented Avdulla.
