2015 Doncaster Prelude Nominations Feature 14

The Group 3 Doncaster Prelude (1500m) provides a good lead-up race to the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) on April 4, giving horses a chance to have a final tune-up for the biggest mile race of the Sydney Autumn Carnival.

14 horses were nominated for the Doncaster Prelude on Monday morning, due to run at Rosehill this Saturday, which will set them up ideally for the $3 million race in a fortnight.

Headlining the nominations is the Chris Waller-trained Moriarty. The seven-year-old gelding travelled to Perth during the summer, running third in the Group 1 Railway Stakes (1600m) before winning the Group 1 Kingston Town Classic (1800m) on December 6. The gelding resumed in the Group 1 George Ryder Stakes (1500m) last Saturday, finishing midfield in eighth place.

Should Moriarty run in the Doncaster Prelude followed by the Doncaster Mile, it’ll be three consecutive weeks of racing for the gelding.

Waller has also nominated Bull Point for the race, who has run unplaced in his two starts this campaign.

Joseph Pride’s Laser Hawk has moved up the 2015 Doncaster Mile order of entry after winning the Group 3 Newcastle Newmarket Handicap (1400m) last Wednesday, his first win since 2012. The gelding has been plagued with injuries in the past couple of years, sidelined for a year straight, but has returned to his peak fitness level.

John O’Shea has nominated two horses for the Prelude, Malice and San Diego, which means he could deliver a dual-pronged attack on the race.

Malice won the Listed ATC Cup (2000m) back in November and won a barrier trial last Monday at Randwick.

San Diego won a Benchmark 85 over 1350m at Rosehill on February 21 before running third in the Group 2 Ajax Stakes (1500m) on March 14, just a quarter of a length off winner Burbero.

Helen Page’s popular gelding Rudy is also nominated for the race. The four-year-old won the Group 2 Villiers Stakes (1600m) on December 13, his first start outside of Queensland, before running second in the Group 3 Liverpool City Cup (1300m) on February 28. He was last seen running eighth in the Ajax Stakes.

Other notable 2015 Doncaster Prelude nominations include Gai Waterhouse’s last-start winner Excess Knowledge, Kris LeesHera, and Team HawkesLeebaz.
