Tasmania’s Newmarket win has Brunton dreaming of Dubai with a stable star | News Bharat

The Inevitable showed he is back to the form that saw him jump in as one of the favorites for a star-studded Golden Eagle with a storming win at Newmarket in Tasmania.

It has been a long journey for the coach Scott Brunton with his ‘little champion’ after the young son of Dundeel was one of Australia’s most exciting gallopers during his four-year-old season.

A four-length win at Listed level in The Valley and a gutsy win in the Silver Eagle saw him pounce on a $6 chance in the 2019 Golden Eagle, a race that featured Group 1 winners. Koldingsunlight, fog, BehemothArcadia Queen and classic legend.

It hasn’t been very good at The Inevitable since that day.


“Since he ran in the Golden Eagle in Sydney, one thing after another has kept him from realizing his full potential,” Brunton told TasRacing after his victory in Launceston on Wednesday night.

“He’s a little ripper and to get him back to where he was when he tackled the Golden Eagle three years ago is an amazing feeling.”

The signs were positive that The Inevitable was back on track with a dominant first place win Hobart.

Then it solidified in the Newmarket Handicapwhere he stormed home with a top weight of 59.5kg to defeat stablemate First Accused with Alpine Wolf, an attractive third.

Inevitable jumped the $3.80 second favourite, with First Accused beaten late in the betting to start clear favorite at $2.70.

There are more summer carnival goals for The Inevitable before attention turns to an overseas trip.

“He’ll go to the Conquering Stakes next start if he gets to this race in good order and then the weight-for-age mile and maybe next year we can take him to Dubai,” Brunton said.

Inevitable has now won 12 of 25 career starts and is approaching $1 million in prize money, with $969,775 in the bank to date.
