Royal Descent Leads Small 2013 Toy Show Quality Nominations

Chris Waller’s Australian Oaks winning filly Royal Descent is a dual nominee at Warwick Farm on Saturday, the easier of her two possible assignments being the Toy Show Quality 2013.

Also entered for the day’s feature race, the $175,000 Group 2 Warwick Stakes (1400m) as one of nine entries for Waller, the daughter of Redoute’s Choice is the headline nominee for the $125,000 Group 3 Toy Show Quality (1300m).

A decision on which race she’ll resume in is pending, Royal Descent to make her four-year-old debut on Saturday ahead of the spring majors, with Waller saying the Toy Show was the favoured option and only a massive weight would rule her out.

One of the top fillies form last season she enjoyed back-to-back Randwick wins to see out her three-year-old season.

The first was a dominant two and a half length win in the Group 3 Adrian Knox Stakes (2000m) after which she put her staying potential on display with her 10 length romp in the wet to take out the Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m) on April 20.

Waller has thrown her into the mix for all the big ones in Melbourne this spring including the $2.5 million Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) and Moonee Valley’s $3 million Group 1 Cox Plate (2040m) set to run on October 19 and 26th respectively.

She’s currently right up the markets in the futures Caulfield Cup betting paying $15 as the equal third favourite with Australian Cup winner Super Cool.

Aside from Royal Descent there are two other last start winners among the early Toy Show Quality nominations – which have been extended until 11am (AEST) on Tuesday.

One of those is the David Payne-trained Holy Roman Emperor mare Queen’s Elect who vies for their third straight turf triumph if accepted following 1400m wins at Randwick and Rosehill over the past month.

The other last start winner is then Chris Waller’s six-year-old mare Hidden Kisses, formerly with Robert Heathcote in Brisbane, who has had two runs for a second and a win for their new trainer.

Also in the mix is Gai Waterhouse’s former star juvenile No Looking Back, the now four-year-old Redoute’s Choice mare looking for her first win since her first-up Carrington Stakes success on New Year’s Day.

See below for the current entries for this fillies and mares showdown with the final field due out on Wednesday when Warwick Saturday race acceptances close.

To get behind your favourite spring-bound runners in the early starts make sure you head over to where you’ll have access to all the season’s best horse racing markets.
