Win Talindert of Forget 2012 Blue Diamond Stakes

Peter Snowden knows that everything goes on the line for the lightly-raced Forget on Saturday as the youngster needs to win the Talindert Stakes and get some prize money on the board if they are to make the Blue Diamond Stakes 2012 field.


Forget is one of 11 two-year-olds still in contention for the opening at Flemington on Lightning Stakes Day after the early scratching of #10 Extreme Impact and #13 Cosmic Melody in the $100,000 Listed Talindert Stakes (1100m).

Coming into barrier six after the withdrawals, the impeccably-bred son of Exceed And Excel out of Thousand Guineas winner Mnemosyne will be ridden by ace jockey Kerrin McEvoy and they are the current $3.30 favourite in the 2012 Talindert Stakes odds at Luxbet.

Second elect in the first at Flemington is a half-brother to the mighty mare Black Caviar, All Too Hard, who is in from $3.90 to $3.70 at Luxbet to follow in the footsteps of their famous older sibling.

Forget is still among the entries for Saturday week’s $1 million Group 1 Patinack Farm Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield.

They are in danger of missing out on a run in the juvenile classic, however, as they have secured no prize money as yet.

In their sole race start to date Forget was well-beaten when running 10th to Gai Waterhouse’s 2012 Golden Slipper-bound Pierro in the Listed Thoroughbred Breeders Plate (1000m) at Randwick on October 1.

Snowden has his fingers crossed they can go all the way on Saturday and bank the $60,000 first prize for the Talindert Stakes winner, but knows they still have plenty to learn.

“He’s a nice horse but I’m just up in the air with what his ability is,” Snowden said.

Showing a hint of what ability they may have, Forget trialled well when second to All Too Hard in an 800-metre hitout at Flemington last Friday.

“He trialled down the straight quite well last week,” Snowden said.

“Happy enough with him but look, we’ll know more after Saturday.

“He’s just got a bit to learn, he just does a few things wrong.”

Snowden’s son Paul agreed with his father’s assessment saying Forget’s Flemington trial was promising, but that they still had a long way to go.

“I was happy with him,” Snowden Jnr. said.

“We put the winkers on the horse, he’s still lost in the head.

“He’s going to be a next-time-through job but he needs to run very well here.

“He’s still in the Diamond and in the betting, but he needs to really perform well to warrant running in a race like that.

“It’s up to the horse. If he does happen to win, they’ll (Darley connections) consider backing him up and running.”

Despite the concerns of his trainer and the strong chance they’ll be out-balloted for the Blue Diamond Stakes, the bookies are taking no chances with a Snowden two-year-old.

Our preferred online bookmaker Luxbet have Forget as a $15 chance in their current Blue Diamond Stakes 2012 odds that are led by Mick Price’s smart filly Samaready at a short quote of $2.40.
