Under And Over rails up to win

Under And Over did not go around a horse in winning at Ballarat on Thursday, October 26.

From gate one, jockey Harry Coffey stayed on the inside and managed to take a narrow run inside the leader in the home straight to take out the Sportsbet Loves Ballarat Fillies & Mares Benchmark 64 Handicap (1000m).

The win brought up a winning treble for trainers Tony & Calvin McEvoy and Coffey.

After beginning nicely, the three-year-old filly settled midfield early before tracking up behind the leader Rich Paris turning for home.

When the front runner drifted away from the inside, Coffey pushed Under And Over ($2.90) through and the filly extended to win by a length from It’s My Turn ($8) with Herecomesthestar ($2.70 fav) a half-length away third.

Trainer Calvin McEvoy said it had been a good ride by Coffey.

“It was a beautiful ride,” McEvoy said.

“We were a bit mindful when we came here today off a cruisy jump out.

“The speed of the race looked hot, so Harry was asked to ride her where she was comfortable and be the fastest finisher.

“He did it perfectly.

“A shout out to Damon Gabbedy from Belmont Bloodstock, he bought her out of the paddock for not a lot of money.

“Wayne Mitchell, our number one stable client owns her so he will be thrilled.

“She is a filly that is really going the right way and she will continue to get better.

“Under And Over was nowhere near screwed down for today, and maybe we learnt that she likes to be trained quite fresh, so we will keep that at the back of our minds.

“We might keep her to these short type of trips and hopefully get her to Wednesday grade at some point.”

Winning jockey Harry Coffey admitted the ride caused him to have a think turning for home.

“It got a little bit tight at stages,” Coffey said.

“It got a bit willing. I was second guessing whether I should have been in there or not when it got a little bit jammed up.

“But she was going well enough to make the most of the tight run, when horses are going well you can do that. We got away with it.”

Coffey said it was a pleasure to ride for the McEvoy stable.

“The team is going well, and their horses always do well at home.

“They have a lot of well-bred fillies that go nicely so today’s meeting of only fillies and mares really suited.

“The team is going well, and it is nice to get some rewards.”
