Bring Me The Maid Eases in 2014 Thousand Guineas Betting

Peter Moody’s beaten Thousand Guineas Prelude favourite Bring Me The Maid has eased in her price to win the related Group 1 on Saturday week, the Thousand Guineas 2014, after her unexplained defeat at the hands of Afleet Esprit on Sunday.

One of the major support races on the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes Day line-up at Caulfield Racecourse over the weekend, the $200,000 Group 2 Schweppes Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) featured nine three-year-old fillies with the markets at Ladbrokes.com.au led by Bring Me The Maid.

Coming off an eighth to Hallowed Crown in the Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) where she had zero luck and was blocked for a run in the straight after getting caught three wide, the daughter of Sebring failed to impress again on Sunday.

A dual Group 2 winner and Golden Slipper placegetter, she was flat in the Prelude and only managed to finish four lengths away in seventh behind upset winner Afleet Esprit who made it three straight wins at three different tracks in Melbourne this season.

Jockey Luke Nolen was aboard the beaten $2.50 top fancy and was at a loss post-race to explain Bring Me The Maid’s lackluster performance, but didn’t believe the firm and fast Good (3) course was to blame.

“Hopefully a vet can reveal a bit more,” he told Racing Victoria yesterday.

“She didn’t zip on that track and I don’t think it was due to the track (conditions), maybe she’s come to the end of her preparation.”

Pre-Prelude Bring Me The Maid sat top of the Thousand Guineas odds at a futures price of $3.60 through Ladbrokes.com.au, but Moody’s Racing Manager Jeff O’Connor said she was not 100 percent confirmed to back-up at this stage.

That price has now eased out to $6 and she occupies the second line of betting now behind Go Indy Go who has been slashed in from $11 to $4.50 favouritism after the Leon Macdonald & Andrew Gluyas-trained daughter of Bernardini ran third in the Thousand Guineas Prelude.

A Group 1 winner over the mile when beating the boys in the Champagne Stakes at Randwick during the autumn, the Adelaide-based Go Indy Go was second-up for the season on Saturday and relished the step up to 1400m.

She then looks like the one to beat when seeing the mile again on October 11 for the $500,000 Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m).

Also on $6 in Thousand Guineas betting with Bring Me The Maid is the Chris Waller-trained Winx.

First-up winner of the Group 2 Furious Stakes (1200m) where Blue Diamond winner Earthquake ran third, the Street Cry filly was last seen running second behind First Seal in the Group 2 Tea Rose Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on September 20.

The two other single figure fancies at $6.50 each are then the Prelude winner Afleet Esprit and Moody’s undefeated Thorn Park filly Thinking Of You who is yet to step up to stakes company.

Afleet Esprit is now out to become just the second winner in the past 11 years to take out the Thousand Guineas Prelude then back-up and win the Group 1, with the last filly to do so being Irish Lights (2008).

History shows the most successful Thousand Guineas lead-up then has been the Group 2 Edward Manifold Stakes (1600m) which runs at Flemington on Turnbull Stakes Day this weekend.

In recent years the Edward Manifold has produced nine of the past 16 Thousand Guineas winners.
