Top Sydney trainer Gai Waterhouse will saddle up a double pronged attack on the 2012 Colin Stephen Quality field at Rosehill this Saturday including her recent Wyong Gold Cup winner Julienas.
The Cape Cross five-year-old is one of just eight stayers accepted for this year’s $125,000 Group 3 Colin Stephen Quality (2400m), the race considered a good preparatory run for horses heading towards Saturday week’s $400,000 Group 1 The Metropolitan (2400m) at Royal Randwick.
Julienas is one of those paying $21 in the latest The Metropolitan 2012 odds at bookmaker.com.au which are led by Lamasery ($5) and Glencadam Gold ($5.50).
It is Waterhouse’s other Colin Stephen Quality runner Strawberry Boy however who is the best fancied of Saturday’s crew in The Metropolitan betting markets.
Paying $11 to win the upcoming Group 1, Redoute’s Choice four-year-old Strawberry Boy won their opening two starts for the season at Warwick Farm before their good third to Stout Hearted in the Group 3 Kingston Town Stakes (2000m) last start.
Other noteworthy Colin Stephen Quality 2012 hopefuls include the Joe Pride-trained former Queenslander Racing Heart (barrier three), David Payne’s Kingston Town Stakes fourth placed Praecido (barrier five) and the Hawkes-trained topweight Fiumicino in gate two with James McDonald to ride.
