Snitzerland Ready to Strike Slipper Favourite – 2012 Reisling Stakes

There are only two fillies the punters want in tomorrow’s Reisling Stakes 2012 at Rosehill Gardens, and jockey Corey Brown is quietly confident that should the odds-on favourite Samaready not be at her best that his mount Snitzerland will be poised to strike.

Corey Brown is confident Snitzerland can race well in the 2012 Reisling Stakes on Saturday

Mick Price’s undefeated Blue Diamond Stakes winner now 2012 Golden Slipper favourite Samaready is $1.65 in the markets for her fourth career assignment in the $300,000 Group 2 Reisling Stakes (1200m) at Rosehill on Saturday.

She has the form, the draw (five) and the confidence of jockey Craig Newitt going the Sydney way of racing.

Blue Diamond Stakes winners have failed next start more times than they have won in recent times, however, and anything can and very often does in these two-year-old races.

With a likely wet track adding to the intrigue, connections of $4 Reisling Stakes second elect Snitzerland are hoping Samaready is vulnerable and their horse can score an upset.

Snitzerland is also unbeaten in 2012, her only loss being in a photo for first when second in the Listed Emirates Airline Plate (1000m) at Flemington on debut last Melbourne Cup Day.

She has put four and a half then three lengths on her rivals respectively to win the Inglis Premier and the Group 3 Thoroughbred Breeders Plate both over 1200m respectively the season with Corey Brown aboard for both.

“She didn’t beat much at Mornington but it was more about the way she won that race that impressed me,” Brown said.

“Then at Flemington, she won as she liked.

“I didn’t ride her when she ran second on debut up the straight where she got very lost that day and I was expecting more of the same last start.

“But she went as straight as a gun barrel and ran the same last 600m as Hay List did in the Newmarket.”

Brown has also seen the way Snitzerland works over her home track at Rosehill and is confident he can get the job done on Saturday if Samaready is even slightly off her game.

“Snitzerland has done most of her training here at Rosehill and Gerald (Ryan) only sent her to Melbourne because there were suitable races for the filly,” Brown said.

“There is no doubt she will get around the Sydney way.

“I’ve ridden her in trials and trackwork and it is natural for her to go this way.

“Samaready is very good but she still has to prove she can handle the Sydney direction.”

Snitzerland bypassed a run in the Blue Diamond with trainer Gerald Ryan’s eye firmly on a bigger prize, the $3.5 million Group 1 AAMI Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill on Easter Saturday, April 7.

“I like the way Gerald is building momentum with Snitzerland towards the Golden Slipper,” Brown said.

“We haven’t got to the bottom of her yet.

“She has a lot more to offer.”
