Hoss Amor trainer John O’Shea is confident the talented filly will continue her impressive form and beat her male counterparts in Saturday’s Listed $100,000 2012 Tattersall’s Racing Club Stakes (1400m) at Eagle Farm.
The General Nediym two-year-old is fresh off a dominant 2 1/2 length win at Eagle Farm in the fillies only Lancaster Stakes.
“She’s a filly in great order, she hasn’t put in a bad run all preparation,” O’Shea said.
In the race otherwise known as the Centenary Mercedes-Benz Classic, Hoss Amor is currently a $2.00 bookmaker.com.au favourite after an impressive winter carnival so far.
Apart from the Lancaster Stakes win, the exciting youngster was awarded victory in the Listed Hampden Stakes following the disqualification of Noogoora Burr and ran second in the Phoenix behind an impressive Boban.
The filly has had good barrier draws in her three previous races but O’Shea is not too concerned after drawing wide in barrier 12 this weekend.
“She’s drawn a little bit awkwardly but she’s fit and right at the top of her game,” O’Shea said.
“I think Chris [Munce] will be nice and aggressive on her and put her into the race.
“They’ll have to run by her to beat her.”
It will be the first time star Queensland jockey Munce has ridden Hoss Amor and she provides him with an excellent opportunity to push closer to 100 winning rides for the season.
Munce currently has 96 wins but has a full program at Eagle Farm this Saturday.
No horse comes close to Hoss Amor in the Tattersall’s Racing Club Stakes market, with the next best Discreet at $5.50.
The only other runner to feature under double figures is lightly-raced filly Sunset Affair ($8.00) who finished runner-up to Hoss Amor in the Lancaster Stakes.
