"Two Up" - another stable double at Ipswich

Aug 12, 2011

The Bruce Hill yard scored another double when Winds Me Up and Square Up both won at Ipswich today.
The two unfashionably bred three-year-old's both showed staying promise with different types of wins.
For Winds Me Up, it was a beautiful snag along the rails until jockey Dale Missen pushed him along once clear at the top of the straight.
The well backed Macca's Express has stolen a margin at the 200m mark but the son of Stromberg Carson and Dove Vai knuckled down to score in the last stride.
He defeated Macca's Express and Shanteleni over the 1350m trip.
Steadily improving through experience, Bruce says Winds Me Up will get over more ground and has a good future.
"It was a good determined win and he, like Square Up, really put the writing on the wall last start," Bruce said.
"He worked home well at Ipswich a fortnight ago and has shown he performs best on dryer ground.

"He is a really nice horse with a future." 

For Square Up, a wide alley prove a hindrance but not impossible to overcome in the 1666m maiden.
After being caught wide he toughed it out to narrowly defeat Touch Me Knott and Hidden Babe to give Missen a double.
Already a city-placegetter, Square Up placed a fortnight ago at Ipswich and improved thereafter.
"He did a pretty good job today really, he is still learning the caper but is getting there," Bruce said.
The two winners kept a recent good run of daily doubles for the yard with Royal Charger and Beach Lady in June and Startsmeup and Go Amigo last month winning on the same days.
