Quezette Run for Royal Thousand Guineas Hope

This weekend Mick Price’s undefeated 2014 Thousand Guineas bound filly Royal Snitzel will look to keep the good times rolling when she runs in the Quezette Stakes at Caulfield Racecourse.

Price has a strong showing of his three-year-olds on the PB Lawrence Stakes Day program on Saturday including a talented trio of Caulfield Guineas hopes in the $150,000 Group 3 Vain Stakes (1100m).

There he will run his Blue Diamond second and third placegetters Jabali and Cornrow along with Nordic Empire who backs up from a Moonee Valley win on August 2.

All three are also nominated for the $1 million Group 1 BECK Caulfield Guineas (1600m) back at the track on October 11 and feature prominently in the futures markets for the classic at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Also run on Caulfield Guineas Day this Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival is the fillies’ equivalent, the $500,000 Group 1 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m).

That is the aim for his other promising youngster lining up in a Group 3 support race on Saturday with Royal Snitzel engaged for the $150,000 Quezette Stakes (1100m).

The daughter of Snitzel won at Donald on debut over 1002m back on June 19 by a commanding two and a half lengths over Birds Of Tokyo before traveling to the Caulfield track on July 5.

There she ran in the $80,000 Ascend Sales Trophies Handicap (1100m) and won again this time putting half a length on Zeletto to make it back-to-back victories.

On Saturday then Royal Snitzel shoots for a hat-trick as she steps up to stakes’ company for the first time, something Price is confident she can handle.

“She is flying sand I think she has black type coming,” he told Racing Victoria.

“She’s a really smart little filly.”

Royal Snitzel trialed last week and then impressed her trainer again in a Tuesday morning workout leading into Saturday.

“We gave her a little break after her last win specifically to run in the Quezette,” Price said.

“She had a trial last Tuesday, a little jumpout just to bring her up to scratch again, and worked super here (today), so she’ll be a nice first-three chance.”

She, like Cornrow and Jabali, is also nominated for the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose (1400m) taking place at Sydney’s Rosehill Gardens Racecourse on Saturday September 13.

Golden Rose odds at Ladbrokes.com.au have Cornrow and Jabali at $21 while Royal Snitzel is a $41 outsider in betting.

She’s shorter though in the early Thousand Guineas markets paying $21 with Blue Diamond winning filly Earthquake the prominent $4.40 favourite.

As for his Vain Stakes trio he is tipping Nordic Empire as a sneaky chance with fitness on their side.

“Cornrow’s put on a fair bit of weight this prep, which is good in a go-forward (future) sense, but just for this 1100-metre I think he’s a little bit underdone,” Price said.

“Jabali is the sort of horse that will run well fresh and Nordic Empire is the fittest of them.

“Obviously Jabali is the better horse at this point, but I’m not underestimating what Nordic Empire may do.”
