Permit Tops 2014 Japan Racing Association Plate Field

Chris Waller’s evergreen veteran Permit is out to atone for a disastrous last start with a win in the Japan Racing Association Plate 2014 at Royal Randwick this Saturday.

The Dansili seven-year-old is one of 14 starters making up the final field for the last on the card, the $150,000 Group 3 Crust Gourmet Pizza Japan Racing Association Plate (2000m) running as Race 8 at 4:45pm (AEST).

There were originally 15 acceptors however the early scratching of #9 Zonza from the field has paved the way for the John O’Shea-trained emergency Tenacitus in gate three with James McDonald aboard to get a run.

Permit heads the JRA Plate weights on 59kg and has come up with barrier 10, Damien Oliver to ride as they return to racing after walking home in the Listed Parramatta Cup (1900m) having pulled up lame in the March 1 feature at Rosehill.

They’ve since passed fit with two Sydney trials, Permit looking to return to their pre-Parramatta Cup form that saw them win two Listed summer features on the trot.

Along with Permit Sydney’s ace horseman Waller has also paid up for four other hopes with Irish import Diametric, Wyong Cup winner Wazn, Authorized grey Danchai and I’m Imposing.

British import I’m Imposing looks the best of that quartet having run a first-up third in the Group 3 Doncaster Prelude (1500m) behind stable mate and subsequent Doncaster Mile third placed Weary on April 5 in the wet at Rosehill.

The equal 59kg top weight in Saturday’s showdown is then the Gai Waterhouse-trained Tres Blue in barrier four with Hugh Bowman booked for the ride the former Irish-trained Anabaa Blue stallion.

Four-year-old Tres Blue debuted down under when a disappointing 22nd beating home just two other runners in last year’s Melbourne Cup over the two miles at Flemington.

They were spelled immediately after the Cup but showed little improvement first-up on March 29 at Rosehill when 13th, again home ahead of just two of their rivals, in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m).

Waterhouse will also be represented by High Chaparral mare Vaquera who has the inside barrier one draw with Tommy Berry in the saddle, the four-year-old coming off a sixth to Catkins in the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1500m) from Slipper Day.

Other notable hopes then include American-bred import Slow Pace having their third start on Aussie soil and first since a disappointing Doncater Mile 13th, and Joe Pride’s former Melbourne Cup second placegetter Maluckyday last seen running sixth in a Group 3 at Rosehill from three weeks ago.
