Myamira Looks for First Campaign Win in 2015 Belle Of The Turf Stakes

Six-year-old mare Myamira is set to defend her title in the Group 3 Belle Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) at Gosford Racecourse on Saturday but will need to work harder given her recent form.

Before winning last year’s edition half a length ahead of Pleiades, Myamira won a Benchmark 76 and was runner-up in a Benchmark 83, both over the mile. This year the mare has failed to place in any of her past six starts due to a disappointing spring carnival.

Myamira raced against the country’s top level horses in races such as the Group 3 Golden Pendant (1400m), Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m), and Group 2 Momentum Energy Stakes (2000m). All of which she was outclassed in, finding herself at the back end of the field.

The mare delivered her best result of the campaign in the Mudgee Cup (1600m) on December 5, finishing fifth, before missing out on a placing in the Tab Place Multi Plate (1600m) by just a nose three weeks later.

Trainer Rod Northam rates Myamira’s last run equal to her efforts before last year’s race and believes she’s in with a chance on Friday.

“She probably didn’t quite come up in the spring but I was really happy with her last run when she hit the line,” Northam told Sky Racing.

“It was very similar to what she did before winning last year.”

Myamira will have to overcome a start from the widest gate in the 2015 Belle Of The Turf Stakes, where as she jumped from barrier eight of twelve in 2014. The mare will also carry three kilograms more but winning hoop Robert Thompson has retained the ride.

“Gosford is a track that really suits her,” Northam said.

“She gets back but she’s got a really good 300-metre sprint and she’s able to kick off the turn there.”
