2014 Thousand Guineas fancy Bring Me The Maid to be tested in Tuesday trackwork

Top 2014 Thousand Guineas fancy Bring Me The Maid will be tested at Tuesday’s trackwork session before trainer Peter Moody gives the green for her inclusion in the  final field for Saturday.

Bring Me The Maid had been the favourite for the Group 1 $500,000 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield this weekend before putting in the worst run of her seven start career when seventh to Afleet Esprit in the Group 2 $200,000 Schweppes Thousand Guineas Prelude (1400m) at Caulfield on September 28.

“And so long as I’m happy with Bring Me The Maid at trackwork on Tuesday morning, she’ll go into the Thousand Guineas. She deserves her chance at Group 1 glory,” Moody told the Herald Sun.  

The Sebring filly was sent out the $2.50 favourite in the Thousand Caulfield Prelude but showed no dash in the straight to be beaten three and three quarter lengths by the David Hayes and Tom Dabernig trained filly.

Jockey Luke Nolen was hoping the veterinary surgeon would be able to find a cause because he could offer no excuses.

“I don’t know. Hopefully a vet can reveal a little bit more. She just didn’t zip on that track but I don’t think it was down to the track. She’s either come to the end of it or I’m not sure,” Nolen said after the race.

But Moody and Racing Victoria Stewards could find no obvious signs for the disappointing run after the Thousand Caulfield Prelude prompting the leading Caulfield trainer to give her a final check at trackwork in the morning.

Bring Me The Maid looked set for a successful Spring Racing Carnival after winning first up in the Group 2 $175,000 Coolmore Silver Shadow Stakes (1200m) at Randwick on August 23.

The flashy chestnut filly was then sent out the $3.50 favourite for the Group 1 $1m De Bortoli Wines Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) at Rosehill on September 13 but things quickly turned sour when Nolen had no luck securing a clear run and was held up behind a wall of horses before finishing eighth to Hallowed Crown.

Bring Me The Maid is still in contention in the Thousand Guineas market order with Ladbrokes.com.au and shares the third line of betting at $6.50 with Lindsay Park filly Afleet Esprit.

Adelaide filly Go Indy Go was elevated to the clear favourite at $4.20 after an eye catching run to finish third to Afleet Esprit in the Thousand Guineas Prelude with the Robert Smerdon trained Lumosty at $6.

Thousand Guineas odds are available now at Ladbrokes.com.au so why wait until Saturday when you can snap up the odds for your fancy today.
