Sweet Upset Chance for Cassidy in 2013 Golden Slipper

Experienced rider Jim Cassidy refuses to concede the 2013 Golden Slipper (1200m) to odds-on favourite Overreach, suggesting his mount Sweet Idea can upset her more highly-rated stablemate.

Speaking after the tough filly received barrier four, Cassidy said he will endeavour to get a run in behind Overreach who is likely to lead from the inside alley.

“If I give her a nice ride, follow Tommy, he might take me all the way to the post,” Cassidy said.

“You’ve got to have luck in running and if we get that, I think I’m on a knockout.”

The Gai Waterhouse-trained galloper is considered a $15 chance in the Golden Slipper market after some impressive lead-up performances including winning the Group 2 Silver Slipper.

The Silver Slipper was run on a Heavy track so Cassidy is hoping the predicted rain eventuates this weekend.

“She’s done great. She won the Silver Slipper on a bog track,” he said.

“She trialled well at Randwick two weeks ago and she’s continued to improve.”

Sweet Idea has shown plenty of fight to record an impressive early career resume, winning two of five starts and placing on the other three occasions.

Cassidy highlighted the fact Sweet Idea has followed a similar program to Ha Ha, the horse he and Waterhouse combined with to win the 2001 Golden Slipper.

“She went through pretty much the same program as Ha Ha did. Through the Magic Millions and then the Silver Slipper and then trials,” Cassidy said.

“If anyone can do it, you want to be on one of Gai’s…you’ve got to be in it to win it.”

The daughter of Snitzel was second in both the Magic Millions Classic and the Group 3 BJ McLachlan Stakes prior to the Silver Slipper.
