Long Term Caulfield Cup Target for Bohemian Lily

Sydney’s most enthusiastic trainer Gai Waterhouse has big plans for her promising young filly Bohemian Lily who the stable rates a genuine Caulfield Cup type for next year.

The O’Reilly three-year-old has to date had eight runs for a duo of wins, most recently in the Listed Gold Coast Bracelet (1800m) on April 25 in just her second run down under.

A Kiwi import, Bohemian Lily races again this Saturday when Waterhouse runs her in the first on Doomben Cup Day in Brisbane – the $100,000 Listed Princess Stakes (2000m).

A dozen three-year-old fillies are set to face off in the opening race at Doomben this weekend, Bohemian Lily jumping from barrier seven with Blake Shinn in the saddle.

Waterhouse isn’t only confident the filly can account for her Queensland rivals on Saturday, but she also believes Bohemian Lily has the scope to develop into a Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival hope next year.

She isn’t aiming low either, Waterhouse’s stable representative Ed O’Rourke naming the coveted Group 1 Caulfield Cup (2400m) held each October as the long-term aim with the up-and-coming filly.

“She has improved a lot since winning on the Gold Coast and she will be very hard to beat (on Saturday),” O’Rourke told The Courier-Mail.

“She is a filly who could even be a Caulfield Cup type next year.’’

But first, the Princess Stakes to continue the filly’s Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival raid that has her targeting the $500,000 Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2200m) back at Doomben Racecourse on May 30.

Futures Queensland Oaks odds are already open at a number of bookmakers around the country, Bohemian Lily one of the early single-figure hopes to take out the Group 1 classic.

The markets are currently led by the Chris Waller-trained duo of Winx and Ballet Suite, the latter of which is one of Bohemian Lily’s Princess Stakes rivals this weekend.

Out to atone for a disappointing eighth to Gust Of Wind in the Group 1 ATC Oaks (2400m) on April 11 at Randwick, where stablemate Winx finished runner-up, High Chaparral filly Ballet Suite jumps from barrier four on Saturday with Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle.

The next logical step for all the 2015 Queensland Oaks-bound fillies, including Bohemian Lily, after Saturday’s showdown will then be the $175,000 Group 2 The Roses (2000m) held a week out from the Group 1.

The Roses has produced all but one of the past 10 Queensland Oaks winners, Scarlett Lady (2011) the last to complete the double.

Waterhouse meanwhile is chasing her maiden Queensland Oaks win this winter since Zacheline back in 1998.
