Cummings Duo Out For Upset 2012 Run To The Rose Result

Randwick trainer Anthony Cummings knows that unbeaten colt Pierro will take some beating in Saturday’s Run To The Rose 2012 at Rosehill Gardens but he remains upbeat over the chances of his Golden Rose-bound duo of Your Song and Ninth Legion.

Your Song

Your Song is one two chances for Anthony Cummings in Saturday's 2012 The Run To The Rose

Running as Rosehill Race 5 at 3:10pm on Saturday this year’s edition of the $125,000 Group 3 The Run To The Rose (1200m) attracted just six three-year-olds at acceptance stage.

Topping the field and the betting markets is Gai Waterhouse’s Golden Slipper winner Pierro who resumes after saluting in the autumn 2YO triple crown.

With three Group 1 titles to his name already Pierro, who is heading towards the Caulfield Guineas and Cox Plate 2012 in Melbourne this season, is definitely the horse to beat.

Along with Pierro the other horse dominating The Run To The Rose betting markets at is All Too Hard, Nathan Tinkler’s $1 million purchase the easing second favourite to win the second race as a three-year-old.

“They’re both nice horses, you’ve got to give due respect to both of them,” Cummings said of Pierro and All Too Hard who faced off to run one-two in the Inglis Sires Produce Stakes during the autumn.

“I’d love to have a horse with Pierro’s record.

“There’s been lots of conjecture about his work and all the rest of it – he’s never impressed people in trackwork but he just keeps winning.

“It’s very hard to judge him on what people are saying right now because that’s proven to be a bad guide. You’ve got to give respect to his record.”

Further down the markets punters can find Cummings’ two Fastnet Rock colts Your Song and Ninth Legion who pay $12 and $15 respectively to upset the shorties.

Originally Cummings was going to accept for only Your Song, eyeing off Saturday week’s Ming Dynasty over 1400m for Ninth Legion.

He decided however to take them both to Rosehill on the weekend as he hopes for both of them to contest the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill on September 15, Ninth Legion to have had to race twice in seven days if they were saved.

A winner of two of their three career starts to date Your Song was last seen beating home a decent field in a 2YO handicap over 1400m at Rosehill on July 7 carrying 58kg, and they trialled well on Tuesday morning proving they were ready to get back to race conditions.

“The trial was good, he’s come out of it really well and he’ll go to the races in good shape,” Cummings said.

They drop back to 57kg but will be racing on a dry time for the first time this Saturday, the known mudlark’s two victories having been on a Slow (6) and Heavy (9) respectively.

“I think he’s in the ballpark. Saturday will show us exactly where,” Cummings added.

“He was unlucky not to have beaten Albrecht first-up and he’s had two good wins the following two.

“He’s done what’s required to earn his spot.”

Your Song is still a top fancy for the upcoming Golden Rose 2012 paying $11 in markets led by All Too Hard ($2.40).

Ninth Legion meanwhile is a $15 chance for both Saturday and the Golden Rose, the promising youngster having won two of their four starts to date.

Back-to-back wins in Sydney during winter were followed by a credible fifth to Sizzling in the Group 1 TJ Smith (1600m) at Eagle Farm before Ninth Legion was sent for a short spell.

They came back on August 18 and ran three and a half lengths away fourth to Golden Slipper runner-up Snitzerland in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill.

“I thought the [San Domenico] run was really good, he got caught up in traffic at the top of the straight and didn’t really get a clear shot of them, and still managed to run a very smart time to the line,” Cummings said.

“He’s taken a nice step off that. He was still there right beside All Too Hard.

“I think the form’s pretty good and he’s another nice horse going places.”
