Hobart high five for Yole

09 October 2021 | Duncan Dornauf

n-form mare Cinocal Jamane notched up her second win at her fourth start this preparation when scoring a mammoth 34.4-metre win in the Prydes Race Cube Pace in Hobart on Friday night.

The win was a part of a five-win haul for trainer Ben Yole, with concession reinswoman Jordan Chibnall taking the drive on the Auckland Reactor mare.

From barrier two, Cinocal Jamane ($4.40) showed her customary good early speed to find the lead and copped some pressure in the middle stages of the race when Tonaui Spirit progressed around the field to find the spot outside the leader in a 29.7s first quarter. With that horse’s run short-lived Chibnall released the ribbons on Cinocal Jamane 700 metres from home and had the race beyond doubt a long way from home.

“She was super, she has certainly taken the next step on that win,” Yole said post-race.

The mare kicked off her preparation on 19 September when placed in Hobart when prepared by her breeder Lindsay Tatnell before being purchased by clients of the Yole stable.

“We brought her the day after that race, Aaron Woods and the boys from Fingal wanted another horse, and they picked her out,” explained Yole.

Yole had a night out to extend his lead at the top of the Australian Trainers Premiership, with Got The Goods ($3.00), Keep Playing ($4.40), Tarleton Riley ($3.20 fav) and Ideal Investment ($2.45 fav), all scoring.

Raider Stakes heat winner Rockandahardplace ($3.90 fav) was one of the toughest winners of the night when scoring in a rating 58 to 65 event, after another confident drive by Wade Rattray to keep working forward to find the spot outside the leader and prove too tough for his rivals. The gelding is prepared by Wade’s father Kent.

The Tiarna Ford-driven Christian Major ($9.00) survived a triple protest to score in the rating 55 or better standing start event after gaining an inside run down the back straight the final time.

The race was also marred by a fall around the home corner with Perfect Mach falling heavily to the track, dislodging driver Jordan Chibnall, with Dylan Ford, driver of Live For Peace, being flung from his sulky.

Trainer Ben Yole said both horses had pulled up well considering the incident.

Both drivers involved drove in the remaining race of the night.
