Bring Me The Maid Firms in 2014 Golden Rose Betting

Peter Moody’s known wet track performer Bring Me The Maid is the firming favourite for Saturday’s Golden Rose Stakes 2014 in Sydney with the bookies reacting to her nice barrier six draw for the classic.

One of 15 final acceptors for this year’s $1 million Group 1 De Bortoli Golden Rose Stakes (1400m), jumping as Rosehill Race 7 at 4:25pm on Saturday, the daughter of Sebring was slashed to $4.40 through after the barriers were drawn this morning.

That price has now firmed even further with the punters coming for Bring Me The Maid, now clear $4.20 favourite in Golden Rose betting.

It’s not just her nice draw that has her looking the horse to beat either.

She is also a known mudlark having thrived on a Heavy (9) Randwick track last time out when defeating a field of fellow fillies in the Group 2 Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m).

That was Bring Me The Maid’s second Group 2 win on a Heavy-rated Sydney track.

She also handled the muddy conditions at Rosehill Gardens back in March to beat home subsequent ATC Sires’ Produce winner Peggy Jean in the Magic Night Stakes before her Golden Rose third behind Mossfun and Earthquake.

While a filly has never won the Golden Rose during the spring, the race moved from the autumn after 2008 when Forensics was the only filly in the past 11 years to win, Bring Me The Maid looks the most likely to break the hoodoo.

She is then followed in Golden Rose betting by three other single figure chances with:

  • #3 Hallowed Crown ($5.50) – James & Bart Cummings’ undefeated Street Sense colt is three-from-three so far and twice performed at Group 3 level on a Heavy (9) Sydney track. The latest of those was first-up over 1200m at Rosehill in last month’s Run To The Rose when beating Kumaon by three-quarters of a length. Got back and stormed home that day and will have to adopt the same style on Saturday after drawing wide in barrier 14, a gate that hasn’t produced a Golden Rose winner in the past 30 years.
  • #12 Better Land ($7) – Having sat 20th on the Golden Rose ballot over the weekend and in danger of missing a start the below capacity number of final acceptors has allowed Moody to have two in the field with plenty to like about his Shamardal colt. Winner on debut in the wet at Sale back in April before a second to Scissor Kick in the Rosebud first-up. Had a luckless run in the Up & Coming Stakes then over 1300m at Randwick last month but gets a chance to atone as he faces the winner of the Rosebud and that Group 3, Scissor Kick, again here.
  • #6 Nostradamus ($9.50) – The bookies are taking no chances with this Team Hawkes-trained Medaglia D’Oro colt for who a jockey is still to be named. He won first-up in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill on a Good (3) but then failed to handle a step up to 1200m when a Heavy (9) track saw him run a distant seventh in the Run To The Rose behind Hallowed Crown. Doesn’t like the wet obviously and is nominated for the Group 2 Danehill Stakes (1200m) in Melbourne as a back-up for the weekend.

The next best in Golden Rose betting at more generous odds are then Gai Waterhouse’s JJ Atkins winner Almalad ($10) who only looks a chance if the track firms, the John O’Shea-trained Kumaon ($13) coming off an eye-catching second to Hallowed Crown in the Run To The Rose and Paul Messara’s The Rosebud- Up & Coming Stakes double winner Scissor Kick ($13).
