Walter Doubles His Chances in 2013 Coolmore Classic

Warwick Farm trainer Guy Walter heads into Saturday’s Group 1 2013 Coolmore Classic (1500m) at Rosehill with a strong two-pronged approach.

Group 1 winners Streama and Appearance will face off against each other in a quality field of fillies and mares.

Four-year-old Streama, who was a dual Group 1 winner at three, is coming off consecutive seconds in the Group 3 Southern Cross Stakes and the Listed Wiggle Stakes.

Walter said he was slightly disappointed with Streama’s last-start performance but takes confidence out of her spring campaign.

In October the Stratum mare was beaten convincingly second-up in the Premiere Stakes before bouncing back to win the Group 2 Tristarc Stakes by 1 1/2 lengths.

“She didn’t go so well second-up and then she came out and won the Tristarc,” Walter said.

Appearance will also need to show improvement from her last outing, finishing fourth in the Wiggle Stakes.

The start before the Darley-owned galloper was a narrow runner-up to She’s Clean in the Listed Triscay Stakes.

Appearance had always shown potential but capitalised on that in the spring to take top honours in the Group 1 Myer Classic.

The four-year-old is lightly raced for four wins and three minor placings from 11 starts, collecting more than $500,000 in prizemoney.

Streama has had a more heavy schedule, winning seven of 19 starts for more than $1.3 million in stakes.

The pair will take on a classy field in the Coolmore Classic including star filly Dear Demi and in-form mare Steps In Time.

Crown Oaks winner Dear Demi won the Group 2 Surround Stakes at her most recent outing while Steps In Time will chase a third straight victory after taking out the Thoroughbreed Breeders’ Classic and the Wiggle Stakes.
