Brazen Beau Spot on for 2014 Coolmore Stud Stakes

Sydney’s premier trainer Chris Waller is gearing up for a massive Victoria Derby Day raid at Flemington on Saturday including in the Coolmore Stud Stakes 2014 where his best chance is Brazen Beau.

Waller has one of his strongest ever Derby Day contingents ready to go on the weekend with top chances in all four of the Group 1 races on the opening day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

He has second favourite Preferment in the $1.5 million Group 1 AAMI Victoria Derby (2500m); last year’s runner-up Catkins looking to go one better in the $500,000 Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m); six stable mates with Junoob, Who Shot Thebarman, Hawkspur, Foreteller, He’s Your Man and Moriarty nominated for the $1 million Group 1 Mackinnon Stakes (2000m), and Brazen Beau and Delectation in the $500,000 Group 1 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m).

Waller has saddled up four chances in the Coolmore Stud Stakes over the years for a third and a win 12 months ago with Zoustar.

Zoustar went out as even favourite to beat home Not Listenin’tome and Lion Of Belfort on the back of wins in Sydney’s Group 1 Golden Rose Stakes (1400m) and Group 2 Roman Consul Stakes (1200m).

This year Waller is hoping the same lead-up form will hold again with his I Am Invincible colt Brazen Beau.

Runner-up to Almalad in the Group 1 J.J. Atkins (1600m) in Brisbane as a juvenile back in June, the progressive galloper became a dual Group 2 winner last time out when at Randwick he enjoyed a strong late win over Nostradamus and Delectation in the Roman Consul Stakes.

Like he did with Zoustar, Waller gave Brazen Beau his final Coolmore lead-up work at Flemington last Friday with the colt performing well in the jump out.

“Brazen Beau did everything right in the jump-out,” he told The Daily Telegraph.

“We didn’t ask him to do too much but he went really well.”

Whether Brazen Beau can become the second Waller-trained three-year-old in as many years to secure the Roman Consul Stakes – Coolmore Stud Stakes double will be known on Saturday, but it is interesting to note that in the past 10 years seven of the Coolmore winners finished in the money in their lead-up runs.

That form however doesn’t hold for Waller’s other hope on Saturday, Shamardal gelding Delectation having run fourth behind the Joe Pride-trained Kuro in a Listed race at Randwick on October 18 after his Roman Consul third.

Kuro is also set to back up in the Coolmore Stud Stakes on Saturday, the super consistent Denman colt shooting for his fifth straight win.

All-in Coolmore Stud Stakes betting at Ladbrokes.com.au is led by Ken Key’s Caulfield Guineas runner-up Rich Enuff ($3.90) and the Gerald Ryan-trained Rubick ($4.40) coming off a Group 2 Schillaci Stakes win over 1000m at Caulfield from October 11.

Brazen Beau then occupies the third line installed as a $5.50 chance just ahead of Kuro ($6) and the best fancied of the fillies, Godolphin’s Blue Diamond winner Earthquake ($9).

The John O’Shea-trained Earthquake is looking to become the seventh filly since 2000 to beat home the boys in the Coolmore.
