Catkins Takes Out Millie Fox Stakes

Talented mare Catkins has continued her perfect 2015 campaign at Rosehill Gardens this afternoon, displaying an exceptional turn of foot late to deliver trainer Chris Waller a fourth-straight win in the Group 2 Millie Fox Stakes (1200m).

Jumping from the gates only fairly, jockey Hugh Bowman settled the daughter of Dubawi off three off the tail of the field, allowing early leaders Lilliburlero, Mardi and Breakfast In Bed a reasonable head start.

Rounding the bend with plenty to do, Bowman was forced to push Catkins wide of the main pack, who steadily spooled up before exploding late to overcome a spirited Plucky Belle on the line; Avoid Lightning running on for third.

Waller was thrilled with the talented mare’s performance for success in the 2015 Millie Fox Stakes, and confirmed the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) on Day 2 of The Championships remains her likely major goal this time in.

“The thing that makes her so versatile is she can sit anywhere, she obviously bounces out of the barriers,”

“They all probably wanted to keep up three wide but fortunately there was enough tempo there.

“Not all horses have a hand break but Hughie just put the hand break on and she just came back and settled, then quickened up well.

“Where we head to here isn’t easy – I don’t really think she’s a Coolmore horse with the weight that she’ll get.”

Bowman delivered a typically brilliant ride on Catkins for 2015 Millie Fox Stakes success and was quick to lay all the praise on the classy mare.

“She’s just a model of consistency, a pleasure to ride and can put herself anywhere,” Bowman said after dismounting.

“She flew the gates but they were ready for her today and created a little bit of tempo which worked into my favour.

“I was able to just switch back in and get a nice run; it was probably as far back as I’ve been on her for quite some time.

“When I pulled her out, balanced her up she didn’t need much encouragement.” is currently offering the best odds on all races remaining on this afternoon’s Rosehill race card!
