Politeness Among 2014 JHB Carr Nominations

A triple nominee for the weekend’s racing, the Robert Smerdon-trained Politeness is most likely to accept for Saturday’s JHB Carr 2014.

The daughter of Street Sense is one of 15 three-year-old fillies nominated for this year’s $150,000 Group 3 J H B Carr Stakes (1400m) at Royal Randwick.

Politeness has also been nominated for a Group 1 at Randwick, the $400,000 Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) where she’ll likely miss out on a run in the capacity 13-starter field currently sitting 15th on the order of entry.

And she’s in the mix for an Adelaide Group 1 too having been thrown into the nominations for the Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville.

It is the JHB Carr Stakes however that the last start Randwick winner will most likely accept for and run in, Politeness looking to go back-to-back at the track following her Group 3 PJ Bell Stakes (1200m) win in the wet here on April 12.

Following her Sydney autumn campaign, Politeness is Japan-bound to start her career as a broodmare with her first date being with super sire Deep Impact.

“That’s booked her ticket at the end of the year — that’s all part of the Australia-Japan plan going forward,” owner Phil Sly told The Daily Telegraph after her impressive PJ Bell effort.

Also coming via a good run in the PJ Bell, where Politeness overcame barrier 18 of 18 to win, is the third placed Miniature who has won three of her seven starts to date.

Exceed And Excel filly Miniature is one of two in the JHB Carr for trainer Peter Snowden.

Snowden, who leaves Darley at the end of the season, has also nominated for the in-form daughter of Street Cry Engagement.

Engagement won three straight in February and March before her last start third in the Listed South Pacific Classic (1400m) last weekend in a fine performance.

Also with dual entries is Chris Waller nominating for Calming Influence and Champagne Cath who ran 16th and 9th respectively in the PJ Bell.

Gai Waterhouse is also dually represented in the JHB Carr nominations by her nicely-bred Northern Meteor filly Northern Glory coming via a PJ Bell Stakes fourth and Shahad out to improve on a dead last in last Saturday’s Sapphire Stakes.

Other notable nominees then include recent Wyong winnner Estonian Princess for Scott Aspery, the in-form Lonhro filly Lady Lakshmi and Roger James’ New Zealand raider Katie’s Cove in her Aussie debut.

The full JHB Carr Stakes 2014 nominations and ballot can be found below, a list to be cut to the starting line-up come final acceptance time on Wednesday morning.
