A wide barrier holds no concerns for Adnocon’s trainer Gerald Ryan but he does have reservations about the gelding’s poor record at Rosehill.

Adnocon will form half of Ryan’s two-pronged assault on the Bowermans Office Furniture Hcp (1350m) on Saturday, along with the consistent Ego’s Dare.

Overall, Adnocon has been a great campaigner with eight wins and 12 placings from his 41 starts.

But his form at Rosehill is not as flattering with just two minor placings from 10 tries.

“His form at Rosehill is awful,” Ryan said.

“But I’m getting him ready for the Hawkesbury Cup and the only way we can get there is to have his next two starts at Rosehill.”

The winner of the Listed Eye Liner Stakes (1350m) at Ipswich in June, Adnocon has just returned from a two-start Melbourne campaign.

He was sixth to Niblick in The Sofitel (1400m) at Flemington before finishing down the track in the Listed Testa Rossa Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield won by Amaethon.

“He jarred up at Caulfield so I brought him home,” Ryan said.

“That bit of rain last weekend will have helped him heaps.”

Adnocon has drawn barrier 13 and will carry 54.5kg after the three-kilo claim of apprentice Adam Hyeronimus.

Ego’s Dare, to be ridden by Christian Reith, has the outside gate in 16.

Barrier aside, Ego’s Dare comes into the race with strong credentials.

He finished fifth to Decision Time first-up in the Group Three Concorde Stakes (1100m) and didn’t have the best of luck when fourth to Love Conquers All in the Group Two The Shorts (1200m) last month.

“I reckon his two runs have been really good and he arguably should have nearly won The Shorts last start, or at least finished second,” Ryan said.

“He’s got the wide barrier and it will depend on the weather as well.

“He has no form on anything but good tracks.”

Ryan will have up to seven runners at Rosehill, including debutante Brilliant Snitzel in the Manildra Group Hcp (1100m).

She finished second to Hussousa at the official two-year-old trials and that formline was franked last weekend when Hussousa won the Gimcrack Stakes.

“I didn’t need to see her trial to know that she went alright,” Ryan said.

“She gives me the impression she is pretty adaptable. She showed speed in both her trials then was eased and quickened at the end.”

Stablemate Cordelia is an emergency for the race and despite drawing the outside in 15, she will line up if she gains a start.
