Lilliburlero Out of 2014 Razor Sharp Handicap

David Payne has decided to send five-year-old mare Lilliburlero to the spelling paddock after a luckless start to her campaign.

While the trainer was keen to run Lilliburlero in the $100,000 Listed Razor Sharp Handicap (1200m) at Royal Randwick on December 14, he has decided a rest would be more beneficial to the mare ahead of a strong campaign in the 2015 autumn racing carnival.

“There is not a lot of time to get them ready for the autumn, it comes around quite quickly so she is already in the paddock,” Payne told TVN.

“She is better suited to mares only races and there are plenty of options for her in the autumn.”

Lilliburlero dead-heated for third with Shamal Wind in the Group 3 G.H. Mumm Stakes (1100m) at Flemington on November 6 before failing to place in the Listed Starlight Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill on Saturday.

The mare found herself in bad predicaments both times. She was held up behind runners in the Mumm before being squeezed out at the start and flashing late to finish four and a half lengths behind Our Boy Malachi in fifth place in the Starlight.

“Nothing went right at all, we got held up for a run at Flemington, she should have finished closer to the winner,” Payne said.

“Then last start, it was all over at the start. You can’t expect to do much more than she did after what happened.”

Payne is hopeful that a good, solid rest will help Lilliburlero find her winning form during the autumn.

The 2014 Razor Sharp Handicap is one of two supporting races on Villiers Stakes Day, open to horses three years and older.
