Angel Of Mercy on Track for Queensland Oaks 2012

Gerald Ryan’s progressive Sydney-based filly Angel Of Mercy staked her claims for the 2012 Queensland Oaks over the weekend winning her Brisbane debut at Doomben’s BTC Cup Day.

Doomben winner Angel Of Mercy looks set for the 2012 Queensland Oaks next month

The three-year-old daughter of Hussonet, who jumped the odds-on favourite, ran away with her third victory from nine career starts so far when she beat home Lake George by one and three quarter lengths in the Channel Seven Benchmark 90 Handicap (1600m).

The victory came one run after Angel Of Mercy’s breakthrough stakes success in the Listed HB Carr Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on Sydney Cup Day where her defeated rivals included Bound To Blush and Hallowell Belle.

Ryan is now more confident than ever that Angel Of Mercy can progress onto the $400,000 Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) at Eagle Farm on June 2.

“If she was going to compete in the Oaks she had to hit the line like that,” Ryan said on Saturday.

“I’ve always had a high opinion of her.

“Just look at her, she looks more like a stayer than a sprinter.

“Some say I’ve been pushing this filly to get her to the Oaks but missing last week’s race was never a worry.

“She’s been trained to run a distance ever since she was in Melbourne and if she was going to measure up to the Oaks she had to win like she did.”

Angel Of Mercy is expected to open second favourite at a quote of around $5 in the Queensland Oaks odds behind New Zealand Oaks winner Miss Artistic.

Her price is likely to firm further when Angel Of Mercy backs up in the $1750,00 The Doomben Roses (2020m) Saturday week.
