Real Love Could Head Straight to Perth Cup 2015

Despite being a final acceptor for the $100,000 Listed W.A. St. Leger (2100m) at Ascot Racecourse this weekend, Real Love could still head straight into the 2015 Perth Cup field on New Year’s Day according to trainer Adam Durrant.

Just seven stayers are nominated for the WA St Leger on CB Cox Stakes Day this Saturday, two of those coming from the Lark Hill stables of Durrant.

Durrant has entered his last start Bunbury winner over 2019m Petite Mon as well as stable ace Real Love who comes off a Group 3 Queen’s Cup (2200m) win at the track from December 6.

The Queen’s Cup was the Desert King mare’s second win from four starts this time in and proved her staying ability once again as she stepped up in distance for the first time as a four-year-old.

As a three-year-old back in the autumn under the care of former trainer Grant Williams, Real Love enjoyed two solid efforts over the mile and a half when second to Balmont Girl in the Group 3 WA Oaks (2400m) and third to Respondent in the Group 2 WATC Derby (2400m).

Both Balmont Girl and Williams’ Haradasun four-year-old Respondent, coming off a disappointing 13th to Moriarty in the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) from a fortnight ago, are also nominated for the WA ST Leger.

Railway Stakes runner-up Balmont Girl however will deflect after being accepted to take on her last start conqueror Elite Belle in the $250,000 Group 2 CB Cox Stakes (2100m) at the meeting instead.

Real Love gets another go over 2400m on January 1 in the $500,000 Group 2 Perth Cup (2400m) for which she’s the dominant $2.60 favourite in the futures markets at to win.

Durrant and owner-breeder Bob Peters are toying with giving her a lead-up run in the WA St Leger on Saturday, or bypassing the race in favour of going straight to the Perth Cup.

“I’m waiting to see what the field looks like before deciding if we run her,” Peters told The West Australian.

Perth’s premier jockey William Pike is on standby for the WA St Leger ride should Durrant decide to give her the run, Pike aboard Real Love for her past three runs this season.

Four-year-old Blackfriars mare Petite Mon meanwhile will be ridden by Joseph Azzopardi on Saturday who is back aboard after missing two rides on her this season including her win last Friday when carrying only 50kg with apprentice Clint Johnston-Porter using his claim.

Balmont Girl ($4.8) is the next best behind Real Love in the all-in Perth Cup odds at Ladbrokes followed by Queen’s Cup runner-up Son Of Something ($11) who was nominated for but did not accept into the CB Cox Stakes line-up.
