Katie’s Cove on Track for Brisbane Black Type

Roger James’ visiting Kiwi filly Katie’s Cove has worked strongly in her Randwick track work on Tuesday morning ahead of her Sydney run this weekend that will see her vie for a trip north for the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

The three-year-old daughter of Zabeel has Black Type ambitions she’ll be looking to confirm when her Cambridge-based trainer James runs her in an $85,000 Benchmark 80 handicap against her own age at Royal Randwick’s WJ McKell Cup meeting.

It will be her second start on Aussie soil following her down under debut on May 3 at Hawkesbury.

There the promising youngster ran a brave second behind short priced favourite Chautauqua in the Group 3 Hawkesbury Guineas (1400m) when ridden by Jason Collett.

She missed the jump that day by around two lengths but made up plenty of ground from her wide barrier 11 of 14 draw to still come within one and a half lengths of the Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes-trained winner.

Collett will be replaced this Saturday by former star New Zealand apprentice hoop James McDonald who was aboard the filly’s last start conqueror Chautauqua in the Hawkesbury Guineas.

“Roger James holds her in the highest regard, and thinks she’s a good horse of the future,” McDonald told The Daily Telegraph.

“She’ll be hard to beat, especially dropping back in grade.”

Katie’s Cove earned her trip across the Tasman after a nice start to the year back home winning back-to-back victories in New Zealand by three and then four lengths respectively.

The Hawkesbury Guineas was her first stakes assignment, and she’ll be back up to that class next run if she proves herself in Sydney on Saturday.

She showed promise of doing that this morning when working on the course proper at Randwick clocking 39.8 seconds for her final 600m in a cruisy trial.

James, of Silent Achiever fame who won the Ranvet Stakes – The BMW Group 1 double earlier this autumn, is eyeing a run in the $150,000 Listed Daybreak Lover Stakes (1400m) at Eagle Farm on Stradbroke Handicap Day, June 7, for Katie’s Cove.

If she showed lots there it could potentially lead to her backing up a fortnight later at the track for the carnival’s final feature, the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) for the fillies and mares on June 21.

Whether it is an unlisted Sydney race this weekend, or an upcoming Brisbane Group 1 you’re after the odds on, we recommend you head to Ladbrokes.com.au where you’ll always find the best odds and betting bonuses.
