Appearance Chasing Third Straight G1 in 2013 Doncaster Mile

What do 2013 Doncaster Mile (1600m) $2.20 favourite Pierro and $12 chance Appearance have in common?

They are both chasing their third consecutive Group 1 win in Saturday’s prestigious $2 million race.

While every time Pierro runs the spotlight is firmly on the star stallion prospect, Appearance has flown somewhat under the radar.

The Guy Walter-trained mare hasn’t won convincingly but has flown home to take out the Coolmore Classic and the Queen Of The Turf Stakes at her two most recent starts.

The autumn Group 1 double has come on the back of a spring campaign where she won the Group 1 Myer Classic.

From 13 starts the underrated galloper has secured six victories and placed on three other occasions.

Her Queen Of The Turf win was evidence she can handle all conditions, beating home a host of quality mares on a slow (7) track.

Having the fifth run of her preparation, jockey Kerrin McEvoy said the Commands mare seems to have come on since her last-start win.

“It was a nice bit of work, we weren’t out to break any records but I feel if anything she felt sharper this morning than she did leading in to her last run,” McEvoy told TVN after trackwork on Tuesday.

Appearance is one of two Walter-trained mares in the field, joined by last year’s Australian Oaks winner Streama.

While not in quite the same form as her stablemate, Streama was strong to the line in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes to take third.

Also a four-year-old mare, the daughter of Stratum has won seven of 21 starts and collected more than $1.35 million in prizemoney.
