Waterhouse Has 2015 Lonhro Plate ‘Rapped’ Up

The Lonhro Plate 2015 at Randwick Racecourse on Saturday has already been run and won in trainer Gai Waterhouse’s mind, the Hall of Famer unable to see her smart colt Street Rapper getting beaten in the Apollo Stakes Day clash.

Running as Race 3 at 2:20pm (AEDT) tomorrow afternoon, this year’s $125,000 Listed DX Solutions Lonhro Plate (1100m) field is down to 11 hopefuls after the early scratching of the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Pride Of Dubai who instead runs at Caulfield in the Blue Diamond Colts & Geldings Prelude.

John O’Shea and Godolphin dominate the Lonhro Plate with four entries including the $2 favourite Furnaces in barrier three for jockey James McDonald.

Waterhouse also has multiple acceptors in the two-year-olds’ set weights plus penalties with her star starter Street Rapper joined by stablemate Giulietta.

Street Rapper pays a juicy $21 in the latest markets at Ladbrokes.com.au and is way over the odds according to Waterhouse whose other runner, Rosehill winning Snitzel filly Giulietta pays $13.

Street Boss colt Street Rapper has the second widest barrier to overcome with Tye Angland riding, but not even the draw could dampen Waterhouse’s spirits.

“I really, really like this Street Rapper,” she said.

“He’s a lovely, unassuming colt.”

The horse debuted at the track on January 24 on the back of a narrow Randwick trial win and finished nearly four lengths away fourth to Haptic in the TAB Place Multi Plate (1000m).

He’ll be improving on that on Saturday however and heads towards the $1 million Group 1 ATC Inglis Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) at Randwick on April 4 during The Championships.

“He ran third, or fourth I can’t remember, at his first start and has gone ahead in leaps and bounds,” Waterhouse declared.

That’s not to say she also doesn’t rate the better fancied of the two at the bookies, the trainer believing she can quinella the race with Giulietta, to be ridden by Tim Clark from gate six, to run second.

“The filly has picked up beautifully since she ran the other day,” she said.

“She could just take a little bit of a sit, get a breather and I really think you’ll see her attacking the line.

“She’s a big rangey filly and is very talented.

“I think they can run first and second.”
