Srikandi Deserving of Tattersall’s Tiara 2014 Chance

Victorian trainer Ciaron Maher believes his Group 1 performing filly Srikandi is deserving of a shot at her own elite level trophy in this Saturday’s 2014 Tattersall’s Tiara after a brave effort last time out.

The three-year-old daughter of Dubawi was one of the single figure fancies on June 7 in the $1.36 million Group 1 AAMI Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm.

While she missed out on the win, she lost few admires with her brave effort to finish in the money.

After crossing over from her wide barrier 13 draw jockey Glen Boss got her up near the front to take cover.

The filly over-raced slightly and was just not quite quick enough in the finish to get the better of the winner River Lad or runner-up Temple Of Boom.

While the Stradbroke Handicap quinella was decided in a photo Srikandi was only a length further away for third in a run Maher was impressed with.

“I thought her run in the Stradbroke was great,” he told AAP.

Having pulled up from her effort in Queensland’s richest race well, there’s a chance the up-and-coming filly will run again in the season’s final Group 1 this weekend.

“It is a Group One against fillies and mares so she deserves her chance,” her trainer added.

Srikandi was one of 25 fillies and mares nominated for Saturday’s $500,000 Group 1 SKY Racing Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m), formerly the Winter Stakes, back at Eagle Farm Racecourse to round out the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival action.

Her regular rider this campaign Boss made a fly in visit from Melbourne to Brisbane to retain his association with her on Tuesday for a track galloper to determine whether she does indeed press onto the Tattersall’s Tiara.

“She pulled up very bright and well,” Maher said.

“But we will let the horse tell us if she is right for the Tiara.”

If she doesn’t fire in her track work leading up to Saturday, Maher said they would send her straight to the paddock to freshen-up ahead of a big spring campaign.

Boss has been aboard for her past four runs including three Black Type wins, most recently over Belle De Coeur in the Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes (1350m) at Doomben on May 24, in Queensland and her Stradbroke third.

If she runs on Saturday Srikandi is sure to be one of the favourites in Tattersall’s Tiara betting.

Plenty of talent resides in the nominations for the all-female Group 1 this year too including Chris Waller’s defending champion Red Tracer out to atone for her disappointing 10th in the Stradbroke.

Other notable nominees including Gai Waterhouse’s Dane Ripper Stakes winner Cosmic Endeavour, their Group 1 winning stable mate coming off a second in that race Driefontein and John O’Shea’s Coolmore Classic champ Steps In Time bound for retirement post-Tatt’s Tiara.

The official 2014 Tattersall’s Tiara field will be released on Wednesday and published right here at so stay tuned.
