2015 The Darley Crown Odds: Top Two Hard to Split

Two exciting female gallopers are currently locked in a battle for favouritism for Saturday’s The Darley Crown 2015 at Hawkesbury Racecourse with Peron and Rose Of Choice at an equal price to win the fillies-and-mares’ showdown.

Running as Race 5 at 2:40pm (AEST) on Hawkesbury Gold Cup Day, this year’s $150,000 Group 3 Darley Crown 2015 (1300m) features a full field of 14 plus one emergencies.

Of those it is the Peter Moody-trained Peron in barrier four (three if the emergency comes out) and Peter & Paul Snowden’s Rose Of Choice in eight (into seven) who share top spot at $5.50 in the latest markets at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Tommy Berry has the ride on Moody’s Husson five-year-old Peron, the Group 1 performed mare after her first win since June of 2013.

While she’s been out of the winners’ stall for nearly two years, she has been competitive in a host of races including a fifth in last year’s Group 1 BTC Cup in Brisbane and her fifth behind Avoid Lightning in the Group 2 Sapphire Stakes (1200m) at Randwick last time out on April 11.

Rose Of Choice has in-form veteran hoop Jim Cassidy booked for the ride, the Choisir five-year-old riding for the first time since ‘The Pumper’ guided her to a fifth over 1550m at Canterbury in late December last year.

She flies first-up however (5-1-2-2) and looks one of the big hopes this weekend in her resuming run.

Just behind the two top fancies is then the Darley Crown 2015 market mover My Sabeel in from $9 to $7.50 to overcome the outside alley and take it out.

Sam Clipperton has the job aboard Kevin Moses’s veteran seven-year-old who is looking to improve on a last start seventh to Catkins in the Group 2 Emancipation Stakes (1500m) at Rosehill.

Back down over 1300m, My Sabeel has a nice record (7-2-3-0) and is still considered a danger even drawn so wide out in the car park, a draw that could actually suit her running style especially if the track is rain-affected.

The last of the four single figure hopes to take out the Darley Crown this weekend is then Tye Angland’s ride Solicit ($8.50), the Gerald Ryan-trained Myer Classic fourth placegetter looking for atonement.

She failed to impress when walking home over 47 lengths off the winner in the Group 3 Aspiration Quality (1600m) at Randwick on March 7, but the four-year-old Street Cry mare had excuses and has since won a 1030m trial at Rosehill.

At longer odds and ready to challenge are then the likes of the Chris Waller-trained Commands four-year-old Calming Influence ($10), Kris Lees’ Sapphire Stakes third placegetter Fine Bubbles ($11), returning Belle of the Turf Stakes runner-up Peace Force ($13) and Anthony Cummings’ Snippetson four-year-old Vegara ($13) after back-to-back wins following a Warwick Farm victory at the start of April.
