Berry Not Bothered by Wet 2013 Golden Slipper for Overreach

2013 Golden Slipper favourite Overreach may be on the drift but jockey Tommy Berry believes there is nothing to worry about heading into the $3.5 million sprint at Rosehill.

Overreach is now at $2.50 after being as short as $2.10 on Wednesday as money comes for her stablemate and proven wet-track performer Sweet Idea ($15-$10).

But Berry, who has ridden the Gai Waterhouse-trained filly to two convincing lead-up wins, remains unconcerned at the prospect of his mount being tested in wet ground.

“Gai, she doesn’t hesitate working the horses at Randwick if the track’s wet so she’s done a bit of work on soft tracks,” Berry told Sky Sports Radio.

“She’s by Exceed and Excel who handled the wet.”

Berry is confident he is aboard the best two-year-old in the country and described her inside barrier position as “perfect.”

“We’ve drawn a perfect barrier for the day and she’s a filly with plenty of speed, she should be able to put herself into a good spot,” he said.

Berry is searching for his first Golden Slipper win after partnering Overreach to a six-length win in the Widden Stakes and a 4 1/2 length romp in the Moet and Chandon.

Many have suggest the inside barrier could be Overreach’s downfall but like Pierro last year, her trainer thinks it is a positive.

“This could be the same this year. The quickest way to the winning post is along the rails,” Waterhouse said.

Second favourite in the Slipper is Sidestep ($9) who is backing up just seven days after winning the Group 2 Pago Pago Stakes.
