Apprentice Luke Tarrant made the most of a stay on a six-week suspension when he won the Ipswich Cup on Danchai at his first ride for Sydney top trainer Chris Waller on Saturday.

Tarrant overcame problems near the home turn to get Danchai ($5.50) home by a head to Banca Mo ($13) in the Listed race.

The star apprentice was suspended for six weeks when found guilty of reckless riding in the Grand Prix Stakes at Doomben on May 23.

However, he appealed and because the hearing is not until June 26, Tarrant has been able to keep riding.

“I was just honoured to get a ride for Mr Waller. These Sydney stayers can really pick up and Danchai is the type that can hit the line hard,” Tarrant said.

“But things didn’t go entirely to plan because we were in a good position when the leader stopped quickly and I had to alter course.”

Tarrant is having a successful winter carnival in feature races having won the Group Two BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes on Look To The Stars for another Sydney trainer, Clarry Conners.

He is second in the metropolitan senior jockeys’ premiership.

Stable representative Andre Rabbett said it was still undecided whether Danchai would return to Sydney or stay in Queensland for races such as the Tattersall’s Cup and Queensland Cup.

“There was good prize money today in Queensland and we decided to run him here rather than Rosehill,” Rabbett said.

“But I will have to speak with Chris to see exactly what we do.”

It was Danchai’s first Australian win after doing his early racing in Europe before he was bought by a syndicate headed by Graham and Linda Huddy.

The Huddys have had great success in recent years with Victoria Derby winner Preferment and ATC Australian Derby winner Shoot Out.

Danchai’s last win was at York in England in July, 2013.

Tom Bell, who rode Banca Mo, said the gelding had hit the line but the winner had a 5kg pull in the weights.

Darci be Good ($7.50) was third, three-quarters of a length behind Banca Mo and pleased jockey Damian Browne.

“We worked into the race well and he fought on very well but the winner just kicked back too well,” he said.
