Bryan Guy is hoping that In A Tangle can produce a quality run in this Saturday’s The Roses as she makes her way towards a Queensland Oaks start next month.
In A Tangle put in a gallant run to finish second to Divorces in the Listed Gold Coast Bracelet on May 7.
Her trainer said that jockey Jim Cassidy was incredibly pleased with In A Tangle’s run.
“Jim was rapt in her Bracelet run,” Guy said.
“It was the first time he’d been on her and he had to keep urging her along because she settled so well.
“She got on the back of Divorces but the winner sprinted too well for her.”
Guy feels that In A Tangle has recovered well from her most recent start.
“I’m very happy with her since the Gold Coast Bracelet and she seems to have trained on well,” he said.
The trainer is confident that In A Tangle has a bright future ahead of her after she completes her winter campaign.
“I think she’s got a good future and she’ll make a nice stayer later on,” Guy said.
Guy was keen to get Jim Cassidy on board for both The Roses and the Queensland Oaks, asking him to discount some of her more disappointing runs.
“When I rang Jim’s manager I told him not to worry too much about her previous runs,” Guy said.
“She got back to last the day she beat only a few home at Doomben and then she came from last the day she flew home and ran eighth in the Princess Stakes.
“She was only beaten a few lengths in the Princess Stakes.
“It was a great run which gave us the confidence with her for the Gold Coast Bracelet.
Guy believes that we may see more of In A Tangle after the Queensland Oaks on June 4.
“I’ll get the Oaks out of the way first but she could end up in Melbourne for the spring,” he said.
The trainer will be hoping to continue his luck in The Roses this weekend, with Guy finding success in his previous two attempts.
“I think I’ve only had two starters in The Roses,” Guy said.
“I won it with Lasoron and ran second with Pentacity.”
