Bowman Tips Onemorezeta in Light Fingers Stakes 2015

After partnering Onemorezeta for a smart trial earlier in the month, rival hoop on Saturday Hugh Bowman is tipping Kris Lees’ filly as one of the main dangers to his mount Amicus in the 2015 Light Fingers Stakes.

Due to jump as race five at Randwick Racecourse at 3:35pm (AEDT), this year’s $175,000 Group 2 Liberty International Underwriters Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) field features 11 three-year-old fillies.

Four of those have a Group 1 win under their belt already including Bowman’s ride Amicus, the Chris Waller-trained Fastnet Rock filly last seen winning the Group 1 Thousand Guineas (1600m) at Caulfield on October 11.

Bowman was aboard for the Thousand Guineas triumph and has also partnered with Amicus, who he believes will be more competitive over more distance later this Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival, for her two trials leading up to her first-up run.

The most recent of those was over 903m on February 3 at Rosehill where she ran a brave second just a head off Press Report.

Bowman also rode a host of smart triallers the day before at Newcastle for Lees including his 2015 CF Orr Stakes hope this weekend Lucia Valentina, Melbourne Cup winner Protectionist who is in line for a super autumn and Onemorenomore filly Onemorezeta.

The champion hoop was particularly taken with the trial of the filly who beat home Thump by a length in a smart 53.01 seconds over 900m.

“To my eye she’s come back really well and she felt magnificent in the trial,” Bowman told Racenet.

“I would’ve loved to have ridden her but I’m on Amicus and she’s a Group I winner – I was satisfied with her trial but I feel she is going to be better as she gets over further.”

A winner of three of her four career starts, Onemorezeta was last seen running at Flemington on Crown Oaks Day in November when defeating Eloping by a half-length in the Group 3 Red Roses Stakes (1100m).

That was her maiden black type assignment, and form Bowman is very wary of as he prepares to go up against her in the Light Fingers Stakes.

“I think Onemorezeta is one of the ones to beat, she’s been tuned up to run very well whereas some of these other fillies are being targeted at mile races down the track,” he said of the filly who will be ridden by Christian Reith.

“Although you expect them all to run well and class will always prevail, I think Onemorezeta wouldn’t surprise me at all if she beat them on Saturday.”

Current Light Fingers Stakes odds at are led by John Thompson’s Flight Stakers winner First Seal ($3) who is first-up here having last been seen running second to Hampton Court in the Group 1 Spring Champion Stakes (2000m) last October.

Bowman’s ride Amicus is a $15 chance while Onemorezeta is the early market mover backed in from $12 to $9 with people taking Bowman’s Light Fingers Stakes tip.

Bowman has also ridden Saturday’s favourite First Seal as well as Waller’s other hope in the race, Flight Stakes runner-up Winx, and so the tip could very well be worth taking.

“She probably surprised us how far she got, from where she started,” Onemorezeta’s trainer Lees said.

“She’s an improving filly and you never know where they’re going to end up.

“She spelled really well and has come back in good order.

“Obviously she’s going to another level this time, there are some pretty smart fillies in that race.”
