SMART METEOR WINS IPSWICH CUP

There was a fair amount of criticism aimed at the Ipswich Racecourse track on Saturday however Brock Ryan wasn’t complaining after the jockey steered Smart Meteor to victory in the Ipswich Cup

Smart Meteor wins the Ipswich Cup

There was a lot of the negative feedback from the jockeys after Saturday’s Ipswich meeting however Brock Ryan seemed fine on the surface after securing the Ipswich Cup for trainer Chris Munce aboard Smart Meteor.

Given a robust pre race preparation by trainer Munce on where to head and where to avoid on the track Ryan produced an excellent display of riding to overcome barrier 12 and produce at the right time to win the race.

Former jockey turned trainer Chris Munce had won the race twice previously as a rider and between him and Ryan they believed they had come up with the optimum plan.

“I gave Brock very strict instructions,” Munce said.

“I told him you need to be in by the time that first turn comes around.

“It is a tricky little track and you don’t want to be getting speared off there, it is hard to win from there.

“I think the key to him is that he’s not a big horse (and) he’s not good at carrying weight so that is why I wanted to get him in with the light weight here today.

“If I had a stable full of horses like this guy I’d be very happy because he puts in every time he goes to the race.”

Jockey Ryan held off the fast finishing Intrigue for the Chris Waller stable late but informed reporters that Munce had prepared him well.

“Had a little bit of a sticky gate to contend with but he (Munce) prepped me up on how to ride this racetrack and it worked out exactly like he said,” he said.

“My first time here and first ride here to it was good to get some pointers and lucky it worked out.”
