Shez Sinsational Primed for 2012 Doomben Cup

Highly-rated New Zealand mare Shez Sinsational is in prime condition to to attempt to score a fourth Group 1 victory in Saturday’s 2012 Doomben Cup (2000m).

The Allan Sharrock-trained four-year-old was impressive when winning the Group 2 Hollindale Stakes at the Gold Coast on a heavy track and Sharrock believes she will be much improved for the Brisbane feature.

“She’s a very versatile mare and she’s improved a lot since the Hollindale Stakes,” Sharrock said.

“The Hollindale was the first time she has won on a heavy track and she’s much better on top of the ground.”

The daughter of Ekraar signalled her potential in her last trip to Australia, running third in the Group 1 Queensland Oaks before finishing runner-up in the Queensland Derby.

This time she has arrived in Brisbane a far more credentialed horse, having scored three Group 1 level victories in New Zealand including the Auckland Cup in March.

This weekend the talented horse will be looking to score a fourth consecutive victory and add to her impressive resume which stands at nine wins from 21 starts.

New Zealand jockey Opie Bosson, who is based in Singapore, will fly to Brisbane to assume the ride on Shez Sinsational after riding her to victory in the Hollindale Stakes.

To win on Saturday will be no easy task for Shez Sinsational who has to beat star import Manighar over a distance the French gelding has proven very successful at.

The Peter Moody-trained gelding had a terrific autumn carnival, winning a rare Group 1 treble in the Australian Cup, Ranvet Stakes and the BMW before running second to glamour mare More Joyous in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes.

Other horses set to run in the $500,000 Doomben Cup include fellow Moody-trained horse Lights Of Heaven, German import Mawingo and former Doncaster winner Triple Honour.
