Pinker Pinker Ready to Take on Brazilian Pulse in 2011 Vinery Stud Stakes

Pinker Pinker is set to take on Brazilian Pulse in the Vinery Stud Stakes on Saturday

Cranbourne-based trainer Greg Eurell is confident his Reset filly Pinker Pinker is ready to peak at Rosehill on Saturday when she takes on Crown Oaks winner Brazilian Pulse in the $400,000 Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) at Golden Slipper Day.

While Brazilian Pulse is the punters’ favourite to win the Vinery Stud Stakes and add a second elite level victory to her name, Pinker Pinker is in career best form and is a definite chance to claim an upset win despite having drawn wide with barrier 10.

After resuming this season with a first-up third to Miss Gai Flyer in the Listed Kevin Hayes Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on February 12, Pinker Pinker went on to win her next two starts in the Group 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes (1400m) on Blue Diamond Day and then the Group 3 Schweppervescence Trophy (1600m) on March 12.

Pinker Pinker has shown Eurell plenty of promise and although Saturday’s Vinery Stud Stakes will be the filly’s first start over 2000m and also her Sydney debut, he is sure she is ready for the challenge.

“She leads into this race very, very well and the three weeks between runs has probably been very suitable, especially with the gap from the 1600 metres to the 2000 metres,” Eurell said.

While on paper the wide barrier 10 draw may seem detrimental for Pinker Pinker on Saturday, history suggests it may in fact be an advantage.

Last year’s Vinery Stud Stakes winner Faint Perfume jumped from barrier 10 and Pinker Pinker has proven she can handle a wider gate having won the Angus Armanasco from barrier nine of 10.

Pinker Pinker will set off on her interstate mission on Wednesday night making the trip from Cranbourne to Rosehill.

Other notable fillies in the 2011 Vinery Stud Stakes field include Peter Moody’s smart daughter of Savabeel Do Ra Mi who beat home Brazilian Pulse in the Group 2 Kewney Stakes (1400m) at Flemington on March 12 and the John O’Shea-trained Sworn To Secrecy who is an outside chance having shown form to finish second behind Blackie in open company in the Group 2 Phar Lap Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill on March 19.
