Catkins Out Wide in Breeders Classic 2015

On the eve of the official commencement of the autumn carnival, the Group 2 Breeders Classic (1200m) is the feature race running this weekend.

Just ten of the 14 nominated mares accepted for the race’s final field on Wednesday, including defending champion Catkins.

The Chris Waller-trained grey mare is the headliner of the field after winning last year’s Breeders Classic from the inside gate. This year however, Catkins has drawn barrier nine, which is the second widest. She will also carry one and a half kilograms more than last time out but Hugh Bowman has retained the ride.

After winning the Breeders Classic at the beginning of last autumn, Catkins went on to win the Group 3 Wiggle Stakes (1400m) and Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1500m) as well as finishing third in the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m).

The mare then had a fortuitous spring, placing in all four of her career starts. Catkins won the Group 3 Sheraco Stakes (1200m) and finishing third in the Group 1 Myer Classic (1600m), to name a few of her accomplishments.

Waller will deliver a dual-pronged attack on the 2015 Breeders Classic after the trainer also nominated Arinosa. The seven-year-old grey will jump from barrier five with Jason Collett as hoop.

Arinosa had a quiet 2014 with just four starts to her name. The mare finished end of the field in all four and was last seen in the At Sea Handicap (1100m) last May.

Peter Moody’s Plucky Belle will enjoy the inside run from barrier one with champion hoop Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle.

The John Sargent-trained Neena Rock is another mare resuming in the Breeders Classic on Saturday. The six-year-old earned a minor placing in the Group 3 Sheraco Stakes (1200m) in the spring before winning the Group 3 Angst Stakes (1600m). However when she stepped up to Group One company for the first time in the Myer Classic, the mare was overwhelmed and finished third last.

Neena Rock will enjoy the ideal start from barrier two with James McDonald as jockey.

Group 3 GH Mumm Stakes (1100m) winner Lilliburlero will have to overcome a wide start from barrier ten while Mihri is one of four horses that ran through the summer, winning a Benchmark 80 over 1200 metres on January 24.
