Hallowed Crown Tops Roman Consul Stakes Field 2014

Undefeated Street Sense colt Hallowed Crown will shoot for his fifth win from as many starts when he jumps short-priced favourite in Saturday’s 2014 Roman Consul Stakes at Randwick.

The Bart & James Cummings-trained Group 1 winner is one of six three-year-olds making up the small but classy field for this year’s $175,000 Group 2 Sydney City Toyota Roman Consul Stakes (1200m) on Epsom Handicap Day.

Hugh Bowman rides the top pick from barrier two on the weekend retaining the ride after a narrow victory over Scissor Kick (2nd) and Shooting To Win (3rd) in the Golden Rose last time out.

With three Group 1 wins on his record and counting, Hallowed Crown has won over $850,000 in prize money and will come dangerously close to the million dollar mark if successful on Saturday.

He uses the Roman Consul Stakes as a springboard towards the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival where he is earmarked for a run at Flemington on Victoria Derby Day, November 1, in the $500,000 Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m).

It is the same three race program Chris Waller set Zoustar for last year, the galloper successful in winning the Golden Rose – Roman Consul – Coolmore Stud Stakes treble that Hallowed Crown is out to emulate this spring.

The next highest rated hope in the Roman Consul this year following Hallowed Crown (103) is then the returning Gerald Ryan-trained Time For War (88).

The Snitzel colt is a dual Group 2 winner having taken out the Pago Pago Stakes in Sydney back in March and also the BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes over 1350m at Doomben defeating Brazen Beau during the winter.

Brazen Beau backed up to run second behind the now 2014 Cox Plate-bound Almalad in the Group 1 JJ Atkins (1600m) at Eagle Farm on June 7 which was also Time For War’s final start.

He ran sixth, beaten two and a half lengths by Gai Waterhouse’s recent Group 2 Stutt Stakes (1600m) champ at Moonee Valley, and races for the first time here.

Time For War trialled at Rosehill on Tuesday and finished a brave second to his stablemate and the day’s fastest 900m heat winner Rubick with Tye Angland aboard.

Angland retains the ride for the weekend, Time For War in the outside barrier six draw, and was pleased with the horse’s trial run.

“Tye was also happy with Time For War and rides him in the Roman Consul Stakes on Saturday,” Ryan confirmed to AAP.

Ryan has also accepted for Klammer in the Roman Consul for the weekend, the perennial third placegetter getting the rails run with Joshua Parr in the saddle.

Parr also rides Ryan’s 2013 Danehill Stakes winner Charlie Boy in the $200,000 Group 2 Premier Stakes (1200m) on Saturday where the galloper will be looking to atone for a failed first-up effort in the Bobbie Lewis at Flemington.

Another son of Snitzel, Klammer has run third in five of his six starts to date, that also includes a win in Canberra back in February.

Three back he was beaten two lengths by Time For War in the Pago Pago at Rosehill before running third this time behind Hallowed Crown in the Group 3 Kindergarten Stakes (1100m) in April.

His latest start was at Randwick on September 20 when third to Kuro and Echo Gal in the Listed Heritage Stake (1100m) which he is tipped to improve on when stepped up in distance.

Also with dual Roman Consul Stakes runners is Sydney’s premier trainer Chris Waller with JJ Atkins runner-up Brazen Beau (barrier three) and Blake Shinn’s mount Delecation (barrier five) coming off a fourth in the Heritage Stakes.

Delecation should thrive over the 1200m on Saturday with a top record over the distance (3-2-1-0) while I Am Invincible colt Brazen Beau is a Group 2 winner over 1200m at Doomben in the Champagne Classic back in May.

He’s second-up here on the back of a fifth behind 2014 Caulfield Guineas favourite Rich Enuff in the Group 2 Danehill Stakes on September 13 and on Saturday will be ridden by champion Hong Kong-based hoop Joao Moreira.

Rounding out the field is then the Michael, Wayne & John Hawkes-trained Nostradamus coming off a fifth in the Golden Rose.
