Red Tracer Firms in Tattersall’s Tiara Betting 2014

Chris Waller’s reigning Tattersall’s Tiara winner Red Tracer has been well backed since final field markets on the season’s final Group 1 opened to successfully defend her title at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

The now six-year-old daughter of Dane Shadow opened at $5.50 in the markets for this year’s $500,000 Group 1 Sky Racing Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m), a weight-for-age clash she enjoyed a win in last Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

Despite a failed lead-up run finishing 10th to River Lad in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) this time, and a wide barrier 14 draw, she has now firmed into equal favoritisim in the latest Tattersall’s Tiara odds.

Red Tracer is now co-favourite with the Gai Waterhouse-trained Cosmic Endeavour paying $5.

Northern Meteor filly Cosmic Endeavour meanwhile fared much better in the Tattersall’s Tiara barriers coming up with gate five.

She’ll be ridden by Tommy Berry back over from Hong Kong for the ride, while Red Tracer will have last year’s winning hoop Nash Rawiller in the saddle once again.

In a nice form line, Cosmic Endeavour is also after the same double Red Tracer achieved last year having won the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes (1400m) last start.

Red Tracer is the only horse to achieve the Dane Ripper – Tatt’s Tiara double in the past 10 years, but the Dane Ripper also produced Tiara winners Yosei (2011) and Russeting (2009) in recent times.

Both Waller and Waterhouse are also in the feature with more than one runner.

Waterhouse also has Robert Sangster Stakes winner Driefontein in barrier three paying $11 to turn the tables on Cosmic Endeavour who she ran one and three quarter lengths away second behind in the Dane Ripper.

Along with Red Tracer Waller then will saddle-up last year’s fifth placegetter She’s Clean ($26) from barrier 12 and their better fancied stablemate Catkins ($6) who is at an equal price with the John O’Shea-trained Coolmore Classic winner Steps In Time having her final run before the breeding barn on the weekend.

Dubawi four-year-old Catkins meanwhile missed her Dane Ripper lead-up but has been kept fit with trackwork and trials.

Waller is also confident that the inside alley will suit the Group 1 performing grey, to be ridden by Hugh Bowman, who was last seen running sixth to Diamond Drille in the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) in Sydney on April 19.

“You can’t win Group 1s sitting three wide, so I’m happy with barrier one,” Waller told The Daily Telegraph.

“She’s versatile, she’s got gate speed, but she can also relax and take a sit if she wants.”

Waller is also confident she’s improved since her third behind Steps In Time in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) in March with Catkins who won three of her four autumn starts, including the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill on Slipper Day, before her Queen Of The Turf flop.

“The Coolmore was the early plan, but once she won her first two runs, she was going to struggle to win that race (because of her weight),” he said speaking of her 58kg allocation.

“That run may have also flattened her.”
