Can Sea Siren Win 4th Group 1 in Patinack Farm Classic 2012?

She’s already a triple Group 1 winner and on Saturday the John O’Shea-trained Sea Siren has opened top of the markets to make it a quartet in the 2012 Patinack Farm Classic at Flemington Racecourse, but can the mighty mare get the job done in an open field full of talent?

Sea Siren

Sea Siren is out for her fourth Group 1 race when she jumps favourite in the 2012 Patinack Farm Classic

There are three single-figure chances in the 15-horse field for the $1 million Group 1 Patinack Farm Classic (1200m) this year, the shortest-priced of which is last start Manikato Stakes winner Sea Siren.

She’s beaten a number in this field and also won the BTC Cup – Doomben 10,000 double during the winter in Brisbane so there’s plenty to like about this four-year-old Fastnet Rock mare.

With a flawless second-up record and in-form veteran hoop Jim Cassidy in the saddle, O’Shea is hopeful but knows Sea Siren must step it up if she is to match it with the best on the straight six at Flemington – which she sees for the first time on Emirates Stakes Day.

“All her victories have been on tight-turning tracks, this is a different ball game,” he said.

“She has to go out on the big stage and beat the best sprinters around, again, but this time there might be a few things in their favour.

“You are always worried the first time they go down it and there are a couple in the race who love it.

“It will give a really good indication of how good she is.”

So should you take the risk and get behind the favouirte in the Patianck? Below we take a look at the evidence for and against Sea Siren to see if she’s the only you should have your money on.
