A different spelling regime has helped three-year-old Wicked Intent make a brilliant return to racing at Doomben.

Wicked Intent had an ordinary spring, finishing unplaced at two of his three starts and trainer Chris Munce elected to spell him.

However, instead of sending him to a spelling facility, Munce kept Wicked Intent in his stables so he could monitor him.

“There was nothing major wrong with him but he has some niggling problems that I wanted to keep an eye on,” he said.

Wicked Intent ($5.50) showed the benefits when he bounded to the lead and then held on to beat Kudero ($14) by a long head in the Bluescope Handicap.

The colt clocked 59.88secs which was only 0.69secs outside the course record.

Wicked Intent was only the third three-year-old to win an open company sprint in Brisbane in the past decade.

“He is a very smart horse and he was as good as I have ever had him today. The only worry was he had had only one jump out in the lead up,” Munce said.

Wicked Intent will be kept in Brisbane for the sprinting black-type races during the winter carnival.

Consistent galloper L’Entrecote ($2.80) overcame his aversion to hot weather to win the Panthers Engineering Handicap.

“He doesn’t like the heat at all and showed it in the parade ring. But the ride from Damian Browne got the best out of him and he had been unlucky his past few starts,” said trainer Kelly Schweida.

Noted fresh horse Beatniks ($16) earned herself a crack at the winter carnival fillies and mares races with a strong win in the Southern Sheet Handicap.
