Trainer Lawrie Mayfield-Smith will give underrated Danagaze every opportunity to feature at black-type level during the upcoming Brisbane winter carnival following the gelding’s return to form at Doomben.

Danagaze, having his first start back in Brisbane following three starts in Sydney during the summer, scored a commanding three-quarters of a length win over Belletrist in Saturday’s BMAG Handicap (1200m).

Mayfield-Smith deliberately kept the five-year-old on the fresh side by choosing not to give him a barrier trial ahead of his return.

“I wanted him as fresh as possible for this so I didn’t barrier trial him and only gave him a jumpout when he ran second to Seek And Find,” Mayfield-Smith said.

“When I took him to Sydney nothing went right for him.

“The tracks were wet and had a lot of bias.

“I thought in Sydney the pace would be a lot stronger than it was but it didn’t happen that way.”

Danagaze failed at his previous two starts at Randwick after starting his interstate campaign with an encouraging second at Rosehill on December 4.

Danagaze, a son of Intergaze, took his record to five wins from 11 starts.

Mayfield-Smith believes 1600 metres is currently Danagaze’s best distance but is hopeful he’ll eventually handle 2000 metres.

“I’d like to think a Listed race over a mile (1600m) during the carnival will be right up his alley,” Mayfield-Smith said.

“He’s still got a lot to learn but 1600 metres is his right distance at the moment.

“But once he learns to settle I think he’ll get to 2000 metres.”

Jockey Larry Cassidy gave a perfect display on Danagaze and backed Mayfield-Smith’s assertion that he’ll eventually get to a middle distance.

“He was a little above himself in condition for this but it was great to see him sprint so well,” Cassidy said.

“The speed was genuine which helped him.

“With a little more maturity he should have no problem getting 2000 metres.”
