Yosei Using 2012 George Main Stakes on Way to Epsom

Yosei trainer Stuart Webb concedes the five-year-old needs conditions to suit in this Saturday’s 2012 George Main Stakes ahead of her primary target of the 2012 Epsom Handicap next month.


Yosei will use this week's George Main Stakes as a stepping stone to the Epsom Handicap

The daughter of Invincible Spirit will be having her third start of the spring and will carry 57kg in the weight-for-age feature.

Webb said Yosei needs genuine speed in the race in order to come over the top of the leaders as she looks to score her first win since the 2011 Tattersall’s Tiara in Brisbane.

“At home she’s showing me she’s going every bit as good as she has in other preparations,” Webb said.

“Some of these weight-for-age races when they get small fields don’t always get genuine pace.

“She’s a back marker so it will depend what sort of speed is on.”

But Webb has one eye on October 6 where the talented mare will carry just 52.5kg in the Group 1 Epsom.

“Two weeks time into the Epsom she will have had a run over a mile and drops back to 52.5kg I think that is more her go,” he said.

While Yosei has won just four times from six starts, three of those have been at Group 1 level and she also finished third and only a length off More Joyous in this year’s Doncaster Mile.

Michelle Payne has ridden the winner of more than $1.1 million in prize money in all but four of her career starts and she will be on board when the mare jumps from barrier two this weekend.

Other horses in the George Main Stakes include 2011 Epsom winner Secret Admirer and Chris Waller’s Shoot Out and Rangirangdoo.
