Jazz Song in Tune for Tattersall’s Tiara 2014

She may have suffered a blow with the outside barrier but jockey Jim Byrne remains confident his ride Jazz Song can score an upset 2014 Tattersall’s Tiara win on the weekend.

Mick Price’s visiting Victorian filly Jazz Song is one of 16 hopes still in the mix for this year’s $500,000 Group 1 Sky Racing Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) at Brisbane’s Eagle Farm Racecourse on Saturday.

The consistent daughter of Fastnet Rock however has barrier 16 of 16 to overcome if she’s to go back-to-back in Queensland on successive Saturdays.

It’s a barrier Byrne believes she can overcome based on what went down in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap at the same track and distance two weeks ago.

“River Lad and the other two placegetters got across pretty quick from wide gates in the Stradbroke, so it’s not the end of the world,” Byrne told The Courier Mail.

“I don’t look at it as a real negative. There’s no need to be necking her at the start.

“I just need to get a little bit of cover and she’s a filly with a really good turn of foot. I still think she’s a second-to-none chance.’’

Last weekend the up-and-coming three-year-old won her second race of the year with a quarter length win over Griante, and early Tatt’s Tiara scratching, in the Listed Gai Waterhouse Classic (1350m) at Ipswich.

That was added to her first-up Group 3 Typhoon Tracy Stakes (1200m) victory at Moonee Valley this season and was well earned after some previously nice form this Queensland Winter Racing Carnival.

Three back she was fifth to Srikandi in the Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes (1350m), the form of that race trumped with the winner last seen running third in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m).

Then one run before her Ipswich success Jazz Song was fifth again this time crossing only 0.4 lengths off Sir Moments in the Group 2 Queensland Guineas (1400m).

Byrne jumped aboard for the first time in the Gai Waterhouse Classic and retains the ride seven days later in the Group 1.

He’s been in great form leading up to the Tiara too enjoying a treble at Ipswich that day, plus a victory on Wednesday at Doomben aboard Regal Conserve.

Latest Tattersall’s Tiara odds are led by Gai Waterhouse’s last start Dane Ripper Stakes winning filly Cosmic Endeavour ($5), the Northern Meteor three-year-old after her third on the trot.

Jazz Song meanwhile is at a much juicer $26 based on her wide gate and the seven day turnaround.

Among Byrne’s better fancied rides on Tattersall’s Tiara Day are favourite Limehills in the Listed Breakfast Creek Hotel Stakes (1400m) and last start Strawberry Road winner Transporter in the $100,000 Listed Tattersall’s Open Mile (1600m).

Byrne though believes at her price Jazz Song is a nice outside selection, especially with rain around.

“If that happens, the inside probably won’t be the place to be,” he said of the predicted wet weather and possibility of a Slow – Heavy track.

The other big name players in the Tiara markets are then the reigning champ Red Tracer ($5.50) for Chris Waller, their stable mate Catkins ($6) with the rails run and the John O’Shea-trained Steps In Time ($6) who will be retired after the run.
