Dear Demi Ready to Tackle 2015 Coolmore Classic

Five-year-old mare Dear Demi headlines the nominations for the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m), running at Rosehill this Saturday, and her trainer Clarry Conners would love nothing more than to see win another Group One race but admits First Seal will be hard to beat.

Dear Demi won the Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) back in November 2012 but has yet to taste success at the highest level of racing since despite 13 attempts.

The mare did enjoy a win in the Group 2 Stocks Stakes (1600m) and runner-up finish in the Group 2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m) during the spring but her campaign was cut short after suffering a throat infection. Following a four month spell, she resumed in the Group 3 Guy Walter Stakes (1400m) on February 28 but it wasn’t the performance Conners was hoping for.

“I was a bit disappointed she didn’t go better first-up,” Conners told Sky Racing.

“She was up too close in a fast-run race but she still went OK.

“And she has come out of the race well. I will give her a nice gallop in the morning to top her off.

“First Seal will be very hard to beat but we will be trying.”

Dear Demi was a handy sixth between runners in her first-up start, moving up out wide at the home turn and battled on nicely to finish three lengths off winner Danesiri in fifth place.

The mare is being aimed towards the Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m) on May 9 during the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival, her first trip up north since 2013.

First Seal is set to top the 2015 Coolmore Classic betting after her impressive runs first and second up. After winning the Group 1 Flight Stakes (1600m) back in the spring, the three-year-old resumed with a runner-up finish in the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m), in which she hit the line powerfully. Just 14 days later she returned to the winners circle, dominating the Group 2 Surround Stakes (1400m).
