No Roses but Oaks Still on Agenda for Fibrillation

Tim Martin’s talented filly Fibrillation may have had a slight setback forcing her to stay in Sydney this weekend, but her Rosehill trainer remains convinced she is still in good form for next month’s Queensland Oaks.

Diatribe three-year-old Fibrillation was originally scheduled to resume from her last start fourth to Absolutely in the Group 1 AJC Oaks (2400m) on April 16 with a run in this Saturday’s $175,000 Group 3 The Roses (2020m) at Doomben.

Martin, however, has had to delay Fibrillation’s trip to the sunshine state due to a minor foot injury.

Fibrillation will instead line-up at her home track, racing in the $70,000 Nepean Engineering Handicap (1800m) at Rosehill on Saturday.

“She had a setback with a foot injury and we’ve been fighting that for the past 10 days,” Martin said on Thursday.

“Rather than send her to Brisbane for the Roses I decided to keep her here with me and she’ll run at Rosehill and then hopefully head up for the Oaks.”

Having performed consistently this season, Fibrillation enjoying a Group 1 placing when second to Mirjulisa Lass in the Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m) on Golden Slipper Day, she is the current equal $8 second favourite in early markets for the $400,000 Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) at Eagle Farm on June 4.

Queensland Oaks odds are lead by Peter Snowden’s last-start Gold Coast Bracelet winner Divorces ($5.50) who is also favourite for this Saturday’s The Roses.

Martin is confident Fibrillation has recovered enough to race well on Saturday, for which she is the $4.20 favourite, and then bring some stiff competition to Divorces in the fillies classic next month.

“Touch wood, she seems fine now,” Martin said.

“Unless she’s 100 per cent she won’t run on Saturday but at this stage she appears to be 100 per cent.

“I definitely want to see her run well on Saturday, and most importantly pull up well, and then we can travel to Brisbane for the Oaks.”
