Will Steps In Time Score Upset 2012 Coolmore Classic Victory?

She is unbeaten in three and primed to make it four on the trot, so can Steps In Time step up to the challenge of a Group 1 and take out the Coolmore Classic 2012 at Rosehill Garden son Saturday?

Steps In Time

Steps In Time is drawn wide but has genuine claims for the 2012 Coolmore Classic win

The John O’Shea-trained Danehill Dancer four-year-old is one of 14 hopefuls in this year’s $600,000 Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m), running as Rosehill Race 7 at 4:10pm.

It is a tough test for Steps In Time who was last seen putting four and a half lengths on her rivals in the Listed Wiggle Stakes (1400m) at Warwick Farm on March 10 as she goes up to the 1500-metres for the first time.

Still she proved herself a Group 1 chance two starts back when defeating elite level winner Beaded in the Group 2 NSW Thoroughbred Breeders Classic (1200m).

She will have to do so again on Saturday if she is to break her own Group 1 maiden as she faces a field full of Group 1 winners with the Peter Moody-trained miler King’s Rose, triple Group 1 champion Yosei, AJC Oaks champ Absolutely and the $3.50 bookmaker.com.au favourite Streama.

Steps In Time is the $4.40 second favourite in the Coolmore Classic odds at bookmaker.com.au, so can she extend her winning streak and defeat Streama for the win?

Below the Races.com.au team take a look at the pros and cons of Steps In Time taking out the classic tomorrow to help you decide whether to back her or sack her with your Saturday bets!

Why Steps In Time Can Win the 2012 Coolmore Classic

Why Steps In Time Can’t Win the 2012 Coolmore Classic

  • Is yet to race at Rosehill
  • Hasn’t seen the distance with 1400m her longest assignment before this
  • Was a distant 12th in her only Group 1 start before now beaten eight lengths by Coolmore rival Yosei in the Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) at Eagle Farm last June
