Tiger Tees The Likely Leader In 2014 All Aged Stakes

The withdrawal of Steps In Time from the 2014 All Aged Stakes is set to give stablemate Tiger Tees an uninterrupted run in front and trainer Joseph Pride believes that the in-form sprinter will be tough to run down in the Group 1 event at Royal Randwick this afternoon.

Tiger Tees has returned to his best form during the 2014 Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival, winning the Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens on March 29 before finishing fourth in the Group 1 T.J. Smith Stakes (1200m), and Pride told Sky Racing HQ that he could not be happier with the form of the Dubawi gelding.

The six-year-old will be stepping up to 1400 metres for the first time since he finished eighth in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 9 last year and Pride admits that the race is at the end of the gelding’s distance range, but believes that the Group 1 winner will be able to settle comfortably in front.

“He is a really hard horse to get past and 1400 is at the top of his distance range,”

“He has only had one go at it, in the Stradbroke where he pulled up sore after, and I think the difference in today’s race is that there does not seem to be as much pressure.

“He will roll along and he doesn’t need to be held right up.

“He is a very hard horse to get past and he is in a great vain of form.”

Tiger Tees has been ridden by Nash Rawiller in his three starts this preparation, but will be partnered by Hugh Bowman in the 2014 All Aged Stakes; with Rawiller set to ride Japanese mare Hana’s Goal.

Pride revealed that it was a minor miscommunication that led to Rawiller taking the ride on Hana’s Goal, but said that he is happy to have a jockey with the talent of Bowman on Tiger Tees this afternoon.

“It was a bit of a stuff-up really,” Pride said.

“The decision hadn’t been made whether we were going to Brisbane or running here and Nash’s manager sort of got itchy feet when he heard that he might not be there and he probably rushed into taking the ride on the other horse.

“It is a bit disappointing; I would have loved to have Nash on board, but Hugh is a pretty good replacement.”

Tiger Tees is currently available at 2014 All Aged Stakes odds of $8.50; with Rebel Dane ($2.10) currently a clear favourite from Weary ($5.50) and Hana’s Goal ($10).
