Can Peron Make the Grade in 2013 Tattersall’s Tiara?

Can Peron Make the Grade in 2013 Tattersall’s Tiara?

There would be few racing pundits that would argue that three-year-old filly Peron is not a Group 1 horse in the making and she will get a chance to prove herself early in her career in the 2013 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

The lightly-raced speedster has created plenty of hype in Queensland this winter, displaying a scintillating turn of foot to score victory three times from three starts against the older horses.

There was a minor scare for trainer John Thompson when it looked as if she may not make the field but enough horses dropped away from the initial nominations to present the daughter of Husson with her Group 1 debut.

Thompson won this race last year with Pear Tart and he has described Peron as a far more talented racehorse.

So will this classy filly continue her rise through the grades and again beat the older horses? Or will a tricky barrier 13 position and the step up to Group 1 level prove too much too soon?
