Thompson on Outside Chance Myamira in Tatt’s Tiara 2014

Australia’s most prolific jockey Robert Thompson may have 4000 career winning rides to his name but the veteran will be shooting for his first Group 1 in six years this weekend with outsider Myamira in the 2014 Tattersall’s Tiara.

Thompson hit the headlines last month after posting his 4000 career win and is now eager to keep the magic going when he partners with the Rodney Northam-trained mare Myamira on Saturday.

A five-year-old daughter of Beautiful Crown, Myamira is prepared by Thompson’s good friend Northam in Scone and has her second Queensland start in the $500,000 Group 1 Sky Racing Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m).

If successful Thompson will be celebrating his eighth Group 1 win as a jockey, and his first since riding Heavenly Glow to victory in the 2008 AJC Oaks.

“I’d love to win a Group 1 for my good mate Rod, I’ve ridden for him a lot of years, so a big-race win would be great,” Thompson told The Daily Telegraph this week.

Myamira is back at Eagle Farm Racecourse after a second-up effort in the Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes (1400m) two weeks ago.

There, on the back of a third to Seaside at home in the Group 3 Dark Jewel Classic (1400m), she ran four and a half lengths away sixth to the Gai Waterhouse-trained Cosmic Endeavour in her Tiara trial.

Waterhouse’s winning Northern Meteor filly is now the equal $4.80 favourite in Tattersall’s Tiara betting with last year’s champion Red Tracer for Chris Waller.

Myamira, drawn just worse than midfield with barrier 10, meanwhile is a $51 outsider in the markets as one of the longest priced hopes.

A Group 3 winner from earlier in the year at Gosford in the Group 3 Belle Of The Turf Stakes (1600m), she reunites with Thompson after Damien Oliver rode her in the Dane Ripper.

While she’s up in class for this, the Tiara her first Group 1 assignment and just her fourth go in a Group race, she has the support of her hoop.

“She’s a good mare on her day, and this is a big class rise for her, but she’s racing consistently, and you don’t get theses Group 1 races for fillies and mares every day,” Thompson said.

Whether you’re sticking with the favourites in this year’s Tattersall’s Tiara, or tipping an upset from the likes of a double figure chance like Myamira, make sure you get them online at where you’ll get your money back up to $50 as a bonus bet if your first Fixed Win bet runs 2nd!
