Primeiro Scratched from 2015 The Vanity

Greg Eurell’s lightly-raced filly Primeiro who was down to have just her second career start this Saturday has been scratched from The Vanity 2015 field at Flemington Racecourse.

The three-year-old daughter of Reset came up with unsatisfactory blood work that forced her disappointed trainer Eurell to withdraw her from the $150,000 Group 3 The Vanity (1400m) on Black Caviar Lightning Stakes Day this weekend.

“Her blood came back and it’s not right, which is a real shame,” Eurell told Racing Network on Friday morning.

She was to have jumped from barrier six in a 10-horse field but her scratching leaves just nine left in contention.

Eurell and connections had been very much looking forward to the even after Primeiro impressed on debut at Sale on February 8 running fast time (1:11.44) to win her first race over 1205m.

“I really wanted to run this filly because she was ready and it would have told us a lot about where she fits in at this level,” Eurell added.

“Can’t be helped and it’s not major, but she has to come out.”

Missing The Vanity is a notable setback to the promising filly’s Melbourne and Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival plans.

She is nominated for three major Group 1 races, the first of which is the $500,000 Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) back at Flemington on March 7.

The Guineas though is now all but ruled out for Primeiro who is a $201 roughie in the futures markets at

Her most likely target then involves a trip to Sydney for the $1 million Group 1 Australian Oaks (2400m) at Royal Randwick on April 11.

Primeiro is at a much shorter $41 in futures Australian Oaks betting at Ladbrokes but will need to get her early autumn back on track soon to stay in touch in the market led by First Seal ($5) and Set Square ($7).

In the race Primeiro misses this weekend, the undefeated Wawail is clear $2.30 to win The Vanity.

Her biggest threats according to the bookies are then Maastricht ($4.80) with the rails run from barrier one, the resuming Fenway ($7) and Crown Oaks winner Set Square ($7.50) who trainer Ciaron Maher assures punters is not without her claims first-up even over 1400m.
