Golden Rose 2014 Hopes Line Up at Rosehill

Three youngsters that sit outside the top 30 in the 2014 Golden Rose order of entry but who have Group 1 spring ambitions will strut their stuff at Rosehill Gardens this Saturday on Winter Challenge Day.

Dominating the field for the opening race is a trio of three-year-olds out to prove their potential for a Sydney Spring Racing Carnival campaign targeting the $1 million Group  1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) back at the track on September 13.

Golden Rose-bound Liberation, Amicus and Press Report all face off in the $85,000 TAB Early Quaddie Plate (1300m) and occupy the opening three lines of betting at for the six-horse race.

Odds-on favourite is the Gai Waterhouse-trained Liberation (barrier five) to be ridden by Tommy Berry.

They broke their maiden status first-up at the track over 1200m on July 19 and will be looking to secure successive wins to help boost their prizemoney which currently has them 45th on the Golden Rose order of entry.

Amicus (52nd) and Press Report (31st) follow in Saturday’s markets paying $4.20 and $4.80 respectively.

Chris Waller’s Fasnet Rock filly Amicus has won one of her three starts to date back in March and should appreciate a step back in class after her brave sixth behind Eloping in the Group 3 Keith Mackay Stakes (1200m) at Randwick last time out in April.

Press Report meanwhile has the rails run from barrier one and gets in with a dangerously light 47kg thanks to the apprentice claim of Ms Winona Costin.

Lee Curtis’ local Written Tycoon filly has had five runs but remains a maiden, something they’re out to change this weekend.

The three all feature in future Golden Rose odds at paying $34 (Liberation), $51 (Amicus) and $61 (Press Report) in markets led by Blue Diamond Stakes winner Earthquake ($6) who is looking more and more likely like bypassing the classic.

Also in doubt for a Golden Rose bid is the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Inkling (32nd).

The Duport colt was earmarked for the Rose back on June 18 after storming home by six lengths on debut at Warwick Farm before getting beaten after over-racing next up over the 1200m at Rosehill.

They saluted as the odds-on favourite at Randwick’s Kensington track last Saturday keeping the Golden Rose dream alive.

Connections however might give them a freshen-up instead and aim them at the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival a little later in the season.
