Reith Rates Giulietta Strong 2015 Golden Slipper Chance

Jockey Christian Reith has labelled the Gai Waterhouse-trained Giulietta as a “force to be reckoned with” ahead of the 2015 Golden Slipper-bound filly’s start in the Widden Stakes on Saturday.

Waterhouse will saddle-up a host of exciting juveniles at Rosehill Gardens on Expressway Stakes Day that have the $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m) back at the track on March 21 in their sights.

In the $150,000 Group 3 Canonbury Stakes (1100m) for colts and geldings she runs the unraced Ulster (barrier three) and the only horse with a previous start in the race, Vancouver (barrier four) who won the Listed NSW Thoroughbred Breeders Plate (1000m) on debut at Randwick back in October.

Then in the fillies’ race, the $150,000 Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m), the five-time Golden Slipper winning trainer launches a dual pronged attack with the undefeated duo of Pierrette and Giulietta.

Of the two it is Reith’s ride Giulietta drawn ideally in barrier three who is the best fancied.

A current $17 chance through in their early Golden Slipper odds, markets led by Ottoman ($8), the Snitzel filly won her December 15 trial at Randwick before a successful debut at Rosehill on January 3.

There she beat home a field of fellow two-year-olds by two and a half lengths with Reith aboard over 1100m.

Saturday Reith, looking to rise through the ranks in Sydney again after a stint in Hong Kong, stays on with the duo looking for another win over the same track and distance.

Saved by Waterhouse for the autumn riches despite being a Magic Millions-qualified graduate, Giulietta looks hard to beat on Saturday and in the Slipper according to her hoop.

“Giulietta is the sort of horse that you are looking for all the time,” he told the Sydney Morning Herald.

“I think she can be a force to reckon with in a Golden Slipper and hopefully she can show that again on Saturday.

“She’s going to take big improvement from that first run. She’s got brilliant gate speed, which keeps her out of trouble, and then she has a real turn of foot.”

Waterhouse will keep Reith on the filly all throughout her Slipper campaign, an important part of the picture according to the Hall of Famer.

“I want my jockeys to be part of it all the way and get to the track,” she said. “I want them at the track in the morning riding these horses.

“It keeps them fit and lets them get to know the horse and the owners. It makes them a part of the process right the way through, which is very important come [Golden] Slipper Day.”
