The daughter of Not A Single doubt makes her four-year-old debut in Saturday’s $125,000 Group 3 Toy Show Quality (1300m), the fillies-and-mares’ handicap running as Warwick Stakes Day Race 7 at 4:25pm.

The early scratching of the widely-drawn #7 Neena Rock has paved the way for the race’s only emergency Lesley’s Choice to gain a start, while Gypsy Diamond will jump from barrier 10 of 14.

She pays $4, in from $4.20, in the early Toy Show Quality odds at Ladbrokes.com.au in her first run since a close second behind Diamond Drille in the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on April 19.

Sydney’s premiership winning jockey James McDonald rode her that day but Saturday sees Blake Shinn take over riding duties after the hoop rode Gypsy Diamond in her two official trials leading up to the weekend.

She has a strong first-up record (3-1-1-1) but it is the likelihood of a wet track that has the bookies tipping her as she’s run second in her two runs on Slow ground and also won the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) at Randwick on a Heavy (9), which the course is currently rated, back in April.

Three other runners are also under $10 to win the Toy Show Quality this year with:

  • #3 Lucia Valentina ($5) – Early market mover despite the wide barrier (13 of 14), Kris Lees-trained Savabeel mare won the Group 1 Vinery Stud Stakes over 2000m on a Heavy (8) track at Rosehill on Golden Slipper Day before a third in the Group 1 ATC Oaks up over 2400m behind now Caulfield Cup favourite Rising Romance, this distance will be short of her best but she can handle the wet and first-up goes well so expect a nice run
  • #1 Diamond Drille ($6.50) – Gai Waterhoue’s Al Maher mare is a Group 1 winner having defeated Gypsy Diamond last start in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes on April 19, also a Group 3 winner last time in and has had two good trials including a 1250m win at Randwick at the start of the month to bring her on for this, loves the track (3-2-0-0) and is one from two first-up, also can handle the soft course with Slow and Heavy track wins so no issue with the conditions
  • #2 Dear Demi ($8.50) – Clarry Conners-trained daughter of Dehere had a poor autumn when well beaten in her latest three runs including a dead last in the Doncaster Mile (20th) behind Sacred Falls, that was on a Heavy (9) but she has previously run well in the wet so other factors there, two nice trials including 1000m Hawkesbury win earlier this month, probably won’t win but has four thirds from six resuming runs so could be a nice place chance
  • #12 Miss Promiscuity ($9.50) – Anthony Cummings’ Magnus mare has had two runs this time in for a black-type fourth at Flemington and a third at Randwick on August 9 over 1200m behind I’ve Got The Looks, up in class but deserving of a chance, yet to win at the track or distance and Heavy track is an unknown factor

Outside of the single figure hopes are a number of other classy types with claims at better odds including Lucia Valentina’s Group 2 winning stablemate Thump ($11), Grahame Begg-trained middle distance type Bennetta ($12) last seen running second in Rosehill’s Civic Stakes back on July 5 and consistent five-year-old Intimate Moment ($14) last seen winning the Group 3 Epona Stakes (1900m) on a Slow track at Rosehill who will need to stay out of trouble early from the inside alley on a likely bottomless track.
