Bart & James Cummings’ daughter of Strategic Maneuver is one of 10 remaining fillies in the mix for the $150,000 Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) this weekend.

Early favourite from the Godolphin stables Calaverite, winner of the Listed Gimcrack Stakes (100m) at Randwick last October, was an early scratching from the set weights plus penalties clash.

With her out the markets at Ladbrokes.com.au for the two-year-old’s showdown is the Gai Waterhouse-trained Giuletta ($3.60) who on over the track and distance on January 3.

Berry’s ride Tempt Me Not also pays single figures in a wide open market at a quote of $7.50 with the pair to jump from barrier seven.

She debuted at Randwick on October 18 last year when runner-up to Salerno, beaten one and a quarter lengths in the City Tattersalls Club Victory Vein Plate over 1000m.

Turned out to mature after that she trialled on January 20 at Rosehill over 900m and was only a quarter length away from Echo Queen when running second.

Bowman was aboard for the smart trial, and Joshua Parr for her debut, but Berry is confident he can ride Tempt Me Not well first-up as she heads towards the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival’s $3.5 million Group 1 Golden Slipper Stakes (1200m).

Berry has been riding Tempt Me Not in some recent work and rates her a definite chance on a rain-affected Sydney track tomorrow.

“She has really impressed me in her trackwork,” he told The Daily Telegraph.

“We learnt in her gallop earlier this week that she swum through the wet conditions so the rain-affected track won’t trouble her.

“She is a two-year-old I have a lot of time for. She has only had the one start and needs to really step up but I believe she can.”

Held back at Rosehill on March 21, the Golden Slipper 2015 is the major autumn aim for the majority of the two-year-olds facing off in either the Widden Stakes or the Canonbury Stakes this weekend.

Tempt Me Not is currently listed as a $34 outsider in the future Golden Slipper odds at Ladbrokes.com.au with John O’Shea’s exciting Exceed And Excel filly Ottoman the $8 favourite.

Berry’s Canonbury Stakes ride on Saturday is then the Waterhouse-trained NSW Thoroughbred Breeders’ Plate winner Vancouver who is a $13 Golden Slipper hope in the early markts.
