2014 Golden Rose Campaign Begins for Lord Beckworth

This Saturday Broadmeadow horseman Paul Perry will kick off the 2014 Golden Rose campaign of his promising colt Lord Beckworth in the Up And Coming Stakes at Royal Randwick.

One of 11 three-year-old colts and geldings in the field for this year’s $125,000 Group 3 Synergy FX Up And Coming Stakes (1300m), Lord Beckworth is shooting for his second career win at start number six.

The son of Not A Single Doubt races in Group company for just the second time following a disappointing seventh behind Bachman in the Group 3 The Schweppervescence (1400m) at Rosehill on Golden Slipper Day back on April 5.

He copped a check that day and had not room to run on the straight but was still only fair when racing on a Heavy (8) track.

Since then Lord Beckworth has had two good trials at home at Newcastle over 800m the most recent of which was a half-length win over Higashi on August 13.

That hit-out was on a Heavy track and he is likely to get muddy conditions again at Randwick for the Up And Coming Stakes.

Markets on the spring lead-up at Ladbrokes.com.au are currently led by the Peter Moody-trained Better Land ($4.40) coming off a first-up second behind fellow Up And Coming Stakes hope Scissor Kick ($5) in the Listed The Rosebud (1200m) from August 9.

Better Land is nominated for a number of upcoming majors in both Sydney and Melbourne including the $1 million Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill Gardens on September 13.

Futures Golden Rose betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au have Better Land at single figures paying $9.

Also Golden Rose-bound is Lord Beckworth, a $201 roughie for the Group 1.

That’s a price Perry is hoping can be slashed post-Saturday with a nice first-up run from his galloper.

While he faces some classy types in his resuming run, Lord Beckworth is not without claims according to Perry who believes the wet conditions could suit based on the galloper’s pedigree.

“Lord Beckworth is a promising colt,” Perry told The Daily Telegraph.

“He’s had two barrier trials and being by Not A Single Doubt he should get through the wet going.

Other notable Up And Coming Stakes hopes for the weekend meanwhile include Godolphin’s lightly-raced Meursault ($5.50) racing for the first time since a Hawkesbury win on debut in May, the Gai Waterhouse-trained Fastnet Rock colt Liberation ($7) and his stablemate Valentia ($9) after another Group win following the G2 Skyline Stakes in mid-March at the track.

Perry meanwhile has two other Golden Rose bound three-year-olds this season with Modoc and Scratch Me Lucky.

Modoc is a $101 outsider for next month’s classic while Scratch Me Lucky pays $51, both to resume Saturday week at Rosehill in the $125,000 Group 3 The Run To The Rose (1200m).

Haradasun gelding Modoc has Group 2 form when third in the Skyline and fourth in the Pago Pago in March and was last seen running ninth in the Golden Slipper.

Scratch Me Lucky meanwhile is the best fancied of Perry’s trio following two nice Group 1 runs to round out the Snitzel colt’s autumn.

Two back he was runner-up to Peggy Jean in the ATC Sires’ Produce Stakes before a fourth when beaten just over a length by Go Indy Go in the Champagne Stakes over the Randwick mile on April 26.
