Sydney jockey Brenton Avdulla is looking for some early consolation at tomorrow’s Ipswich Cup meeting before he begins a nine meeting suspension.

Avdulla’s suspension for careless riding begins at midnight Saturday night and he is out until midnight Saturday June 29 ruling him out of the final Group 1 of the season, the $500,000 Sky Racing Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) at Eagle Farm June 22.

Stewards found Avdulla guilty of causing interference on Howmuchdoyouloveme at the 300m before going on to win the Listed $80,000 Evergreen Turf Lightning Handicap (1000m) at Eagle Farm last Saturday.

“I’m disappointed to be missing the ride on Arinosa in the Tatt’s Tiara next week and I’ll also miss riding in the Healy Stakes as well,” Avdulla said.

Avdulla is the regular rider for the Chris Waller trained Arinosa who is back on track for the Tattersall’s Tiara after pulling up lame when fourth to Sookie in the Group 3 $150,000 Glenlogan Park Stakes (1350m) at Doomben on May 25.

But Avdulla is hopeful of a successful day at Ipswich and has his eyes set on winning a feature double for trainer Gerald Ryan with Planetarium in the Listed $200,000 Channel 7 Ipswich Cup (2150m) and Dances On Stars in the Listed $175,000 City Of Ipswich Eye Liner Stakes (1350m).

Dances On Stars has been posted the early favourite for the Eye Liner Stakes after an eye catching second to Sizzling in the Group 2 $350,000 Sky Racing Queensland Guineas (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 1.

While Planetarium could be sent to Grafton for the Listed $150,000 100th Grafton Cup (2350m) on July 11 if he races up  to Ryan’s expectation after winning over 1818m in a restricted race at Eagle Farm on the same day.

“This is a step up for him but if he can do well then it opens up the options for him later on,” Ryan said.

Avdulla will team up with the Bjorn Baker trainer City Of Song in the other feature race on the card, the Listed $100,000 Sky Racing World Gai Waterhouse Classic (1350m).

Whereas Planetarium and Dances On Stars came up with the inside barrier, City Of Song will start from near the outside after drawing gate sixteen in the field of sixteen plus two emergencies.

With Cradle Me already scratched after drawing the outside of the field, Sharnee Rose is the only other runner drawn outside City Of Song.

Dances On Stars heads the market in the Eye liner at $3.50 with topweight Conservatorium the second pick at $6.

Planetarium in on the second line of betting in the Ipswich Cup at $7, with the Peter Moody trained Voila Ici the favourite at $3.50.

And from the wide alley City Of Song has been posted a $15 chance in the Gai Waterhouse Classic behind John Thompson’s Peron, the $3.80 favourite, and Bound To Blush and Classics at $6.

    Needed to send you that bit of remark to give thanks yet again for all the striking principles you have contributed on this site. This is simply surprisingly generous of you to give easily precisely what a few people could possibly have marketed as an electronic book to generate some cash on their own, chiefly given that you might have done it in case you wanted. These points as well worked to become good way to fully grasp other people online have the same dreams similar to my personal own to figure out way more with regard to this problem. I’m sure there are lots of more pleasant sessions in the future for people who browse through your site.

    dress up is always a great and exciting one, or strip poker. Perhaps get some dice from a game board and decide if you land on certain numbers what those actions are. Spice it up is always a great thing!!
