Berry To Miss Ride On Carlton House

Berry was suspended for careless riding at a meeting at Canterbury last Wednesday and will miss next Saturday’s bumper card at Royal Randwick, which includes the Tramway Handicap that is set to see a number of potential 2013 Spring Racing Carnival stars do battle.

Carlton House has impressed since returning from a spell, recording a win over classy stablemate Fiorente in a barrier trial at Randwick at the start of the month, and Berry is clearly disappointed to miss out on riding the European Group 1 placegetter.

“It is disappointing, but there will be other times, and it’s going to be a long carnival,” Berry told News Limited.

“Carlton House has been working well at home, he beat Fiorente home in his last trial, and beat the rest of the horses in that trial by five lengths.

“He’s only gone on since then.

“I really like the horse a lot I think he can be top-class if we get him to the races at his best.”

Berry’s suspension has put Carlton House’s trainer Gai Waterhouse in a tough position with number one stable jockey Nash Rawiller also ruled out of next weekend’s racing due to suspension.

Carlton House made his Australian debut in the Group 2 Ajax Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill in March and finished a disappointing thirteenth but was found to be lame after the race.

The Street Cry entire will be a Group 1 contender this spring if he can return to the form that he exhibited in Europe, where he failed to win a race at the highest level of racing but was only narrowly beaten by equine superstar So You Think and finished ahead of 2013 Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) winner Reliable Man in the Prince of Wales’s Stakes (2011m) during the 2012 Royal Ascot meeting.

Carlton House is a chance to start in all three major races during the 2013 Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival and is currently considered a $26 chance to win the Caulfield Cup (2400m) and an $18 chance for the Cox Plate (2040m).
