One time rogue Blinkin Easy is a TABsportsbet $8 fixed odds chance for today’s $50,000 Taree Cup (2000m, 4.55 EST) but will need to overcome a 15 month drought and a unusual preparation to win.

The seven-year-old has failed to win in 14 starts since September 2010 after a 1800m win at Port Macquarie.

The Ruth Cooper-trained gelding also takes a huge step in distance to 2000m after its two latest runs at 1100m and 1200m.

He ran third over 1100m behind Sequent at Port Macquarie and a fourth to Usain Prince over 1200m at Tamworth.

“There were no other suitable races for Blinkin Easy so I put some work into his legs with sprints,” Cooper said

Those runs came after a 28 day break and Cooper points to two runs in October for the real guide to Blinkin Easy’s chances.

He ran second to Old Bill in the Port Macquarie Cup (2000m) and a close-up fourth to Merensky Reef in a Restricted (2000m) at Rosehill.

“He is a very versatile horse, he has won from 1000m to 2000m and he can handle all track conditions,” Cooper said.

“He was underdone in the Port Cup and I expect a big run in this Cup.”

Blinkin Easy has won 11 races in 60 starts and finished second in last year’s Taree Cup behind Spence.

“My horse was very unlucky not to win last year,” Cooper said.

While trained at Moonbi (near Tamworth) there is a smidgin of local connection.

Jockey Matt Bennett started his apprenticeship at Taree and owner Errol French is regarded as a part-time Taree resident.

Taree trainer Ross Stitt also helped pick out Blinkin Easy as a youngster at the sales.

That pick wasn’t well appreciated in the early days of Blinkin Easy’s career.

“He was such a handful and as I had a tough cowboy working at my stable, the horse was transferred to me to get his manners in order,” Cooper said.
