Straight to Thousand Guineas 2012 for Lady Of Harrods

Russell Cameron’s dual Group 3 winning filly Lady Of Harrods is likely to bypass this Saturday’s Flemington meeting in Melbourne and go straight into the 2012 Thousand Guineas at Caulfield Racecourse on Wednesday October 17.

Lady Of Harrods

Lady Of Harrods will bypass the Flemington races this Saturday and go straight into the 2012 Thousand Guineas

The three-year-old daughter of Dubawi has won three of her six career starts to date including her two biggest assignments back-to-back.

Second-up for the spring she narrowly defeated Kabayan in the Group 3 HDF McNeil Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield before returning to the track last start to score another narrow victory this time over Atlantic Jewel’s three-quarter sister Commanding Jewel in the Group 3 Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m).

Cameron has Lady Of Harrods dually nominated at Flemington this Saturday in both the $120,000 Listed Vintage Stakes (1410m) and the $220,000 Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes (1610m) however he has since said she is likely to miss the meeting altogether.

Instead the Flemington trainer will take his stable revolution fresh into the $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m), Lady Of Harrods currently rated a $19 chance in the latest Thousand Guineas odds, as she sees the mile for the first time.

“I don’t think she’s going to run (on Saturday),” Cameron said.

“She’s just going to go straight to the Thousand Guineas, that’s at the moment anyway.

“I just feel that she’s there (fitness wise) and I wonder if another one might throw her over.

“I’m pretty happy with where she is at the moment and she’s got to run the mile out anyway regardless and if she’s going to run it out she’ll run it this way I think.”

It is currently a very tight Thousand Guineas betting market in Australia with six single-figure chances in Adelaide filly Molto Bene ($4.80), the Greg Eurell-trained Love For Ransom ($6.50), Commanding Jewel ($8), Bart Cummings’ Tea Rose Stakes runner-up Norzita ($8.50), Clarry Conners’ Furious Stakes winner Dear Demi ($9) and Dazzler ($9).

Of these the Leon Corstens-trained Commanding Jewel is set to race in the Edward Manifold on Saturday while Peter Snowden’s More Than Ready filly Dazzler is entered for the Vintage Stakes.

As for the Will Clarken-trained Molto Bene she too will go straight to the Thousand Guineas with red hot hoop Craig Williams booked for the ride.

“I’m delighted with her,” Williams said of the Royal Academy filly.

“Her second-up run (when third in the Thousand Guineas) was really good and she had the best closing sectionals.

“She’s coming on all the time. Went she went down the straight first-up, she was very new and very green but when I worked her down the straight the other day she was a different horse, really switched on.’
