Top Sydney jockey Hugh Bowman will reunite with in-form galloper Streama for the mare’s attempt to claim a third Group 1 victory in Saturday’s 2013 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m).
Bowman rode the classy four-year-old in her first 21 career starts before Glen Boss took over in her two most recent outings.
A dual Group 1 winner as a three-year-old, Streama has been in great form despite not tasting victory this preparation.
From six starts in 2013 the daughter of Stratum has scored three minor placings as well as a fourth-place finish in the Doncaster Mile.
At her most recent outing Streama made many punters sit up and take note when storming home to take third-place honours in the Stradbroke Handicap on June 8.
Clearly relishing the Queensland conditions at her pet distance, the Guy Walter-trained mare is expected to start among the favourites at Eagle Farm this Saturday.
Streama impressed plenty at trackwork this morning as she underwent her final serious lead-up gallop at Eagle Farm with local rider Ryan Wiggins in the saddle.
Walter goes into the last Group 1 race of the 2012-13 racing season with two hot chances, with fellow in-form mare Skyerush also set to line up.
A runner-up to Pear Tart in the $500,000 race last year, the seven-year-old mare is striving to score the first Group 1 of her career.
The daughter of Super Jet heads to Eagle Farm in terrific form, having won three of four starts at Sydney’s autumn carnival including the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes.
