Albrecht Out to Upset Favourites in 2012 Golden Rose

Peter Snowden will have two runners in this weekend’s 2012 Golden Rose (1400m) but there is one that has been specifically aimed at the $1 million three-year-old feature.

Albrecht

Albrecht is primed for Saturday's Golden Rose

Epaulette may have a bigger profile than Albrecht but it is the more lightly-raced colt that Snowden expects to be his biggest chance on Saturday.

Perhaps the biggest pointer is that Darley’s number one jockey Kerrin McEvoy has elected to ride Albrecht with Tommy Berry being called upon to accompany Epaulette.

Albrecht, a son of Redoute’s Choice, has won two of three starts since debuting in June including the Group 2 Up And Coming Stakes (1300m) late last month.

Snowden said that while Epaulette is a talented horse, his grand final was likely to come in the Caulfield Guineas.

“I told Kerrin that one of these horses has been specifically aimed for this race where the other bloke is heading towards the Guineas,” Snowden said.

“No doubting Epaulette’s ability, his first up run was excellent and he certainly has improved since his first up run the other day.”

“He’s (Albrecht) as good as we can get him, this is always the race we have had in mind and to have him at his best for.”

The talented youngster has drawn barrier 10 for Saturday’s three-year-old feature and is rated a $9.50 chance.

Patinack’s unbeaten filly Nechita is the current favourite at $2.25 after a dominant first-up performance in the Group 3 Silver Shadow Stakes which she won by two lengths from Meidung.

Second favourite is the Gai Waterhouse-trained Kabayan ($4.60) while Your Song ($8.00) occupies the third line of betting.
