Tilla Bell Rings lands the plunge at Caulfield

Darryl Sherer – 14 Oct 2015

Punters left bookies reeling when Tilla Bell Rings landed a good old fashioned plonk in the Montague Tree Plate (2000m) at Caulfield.

Backed in from $26 to start $12, punters did not have much to worry about thanks to a peach of a ride from Dean Yendall.

Smothered away in fourth place along the inside, Yendall did not come around a horse, moving through on the inside of High Church, who hung turning into the home straight under pressure.

Tilla Bell Rings ($12) accelerated clear and did enough to hold the late rally of Firehouse Rock ($3.90 fav) to score by a short-head, to the chagrin of the bagmen. Second Bullet ($6.50) ran on late for third to be beaten three-quarters of a length.

Trainer Darren Weir said he “might be able to eat tonight” following the win.

“He hasn’t had a lot of luck recently and getting back on firmer going suited him,” Weir said.

“We felt today if he could jump and hold a position, which can be an issue because he has a rotten habit of missing the start sometimes.

“He began ok and then Dean gave him a little dig to get behind the leader.

“He rode for luck and got it so it’s a great result for a loyal bunch of owners that have been with me for years.”

Weir will consider a tilt at the $100,000 Kyneton Cup on November 4 next for the locally owned seven-year-old son of Bel Esprit.

“We wanted to see where he fitted in today but he can back up and I think he deserves a crack at a race like the Kyneton Cup.”
