Flemington Run for 2014 Golden Rose Bound Coram

This Saturday in Melbourne local trainer Troy Corstens will continue the Golden Rose 2014 campaign with his promising three-year-old Coram at Flemington Racecourse.

While a host of other youngsters look to stake their claims for the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill on September 13 by running in Sydney’s $100,000 Listed The Rosebud (1200m), Corstens will give his hopeful another Victorian run.

Sebring gelding Coram is rated a $41 outsider in the current Golden Rose odds at Ladbrokes.com.au, markets firmly led by Godolphin-owned Blue Diamond winning filly Earthquake ($6.50).

They entered calculations for the Rose, as well as the $1 million Group 1 Caulfield Guineas (1600m) back in Melbourne on October 11, when resuming off a five month spell to win at Geelong by six lengths on July 18.

That was their first run for Corstens, who now trains in partnership with his father Leon, and their first since being gelded, after opening their career with John Sadler for three unplaced runs.

Having settled better post-operation Coram now looks on track to continue their season on Saturday with another good run that will give his trainers a better gauge of their Golden Rose potential.

“He has always shown promise,” Corstens told AAP.

“He didn’t beat much (at Geelong) and we’re not getting ahead of ourselves, but he won how we wanted to see him win.

“Obviously Saturday is going to be a really big step and is going to tell us exactly where we are going to be heading.

“The short-term plan will be the Golden Rose if we can get there.

“He will have to run really well if not win on Saturday to keep pushing forward towards that, but that’s where we are trying to head.”

On Saturday they race in the $80,000 Joyann Erskine & Philip Carroll Handicap (1400m) against a field of fellow three year olds, jumping from barrier eight with their last start winning jockey Chris Symons staying on.

They’re the short $3.20 favourite through Ladbrokes.com.au to make it back-to-back wins too.

Their main dangers are then perceived to be the Robert Smerdon-trained Turffontein filly Fontein Ruby coming off a Sandown win ($4.40) and Peter Moody’s Hard Spun gelding San Nicasio ($6.50) who won on debut last start.

To back Coram this weekend at the Flemington races or in next month’s Group 1 Golden Rose at the hottest odds, head over to Ladbrokes.com.au where you will also be rewarded as a new depositor with a bonus match bet up to $250!
