Japan Racing Association Plate Ideal for Gypsy Diamond

Gypsy Diamond all but ruled herself out of contention in the Group 1 Queen Of The Turf Stakes (1600m) when walking out of the gates last weekend but will be offered a chance at redemption in Saturday’s Group 3 Japan Racing Association Plate (2000m) at Randwick.

Posting three wins and a further six minor place finishes through her 23 career starts so fat, Gypsy Diamond was unable to make much of an impact over her maiden campaign for Peter and Paul Snowden in spring but found competitive form over three starts leading into the Queen Of The Turf Stakes.

Confident she has come through the run in perfect condition, co-trainer Paul Snowden told Racing Ahead the team was thrilled with the Not A Single Doubt mare’s performance in the Queen Of The Turf Stakes following her poor start and believes she will relish a step-up to 2000m for the 2015 Japan Racing Association Plate.

“She’ll run again; she’ll back up from Saturday,” Snowden said.

“She missed the kick by two or three lengths in the Queen Of The Turf and it was basically all over from there.

“I thought her run was particularly good with what she had to do – even though we were pretty much out of play after the start there on Saturday I think definitely a step-up to 2000m is what she wants.”

Beginning her career under the care of now-Godolphin head trainer John O’Shea, Gypsy Diamond arguably found career-best form to date through the 2014 Autumn Carnival; highlighted by a win in the Group 3 Carbine Club Stakes (1600m) and agonizingly-close second place finishes in the Group 2 Light Fingers Stakes (1200m) and Queen Of The Turf Stakes.

Included amongst a list of 18 in 2015 Japan Racing Association Plate nominations on Monday, Gypsy Diamond is expected to be confirmed in a final field of 13 by midday, Wednesday.
