Peace Force Out of 2015 Tattersall’s Tiara Contention

After earlier in the week declaring Peace Force still a genuine hope of running in Saturday week’s Tattersall’s Tiara 2015 on the Gold Coast, Sydney trainer Gerald Ryan has ruled the mare out of the final Group 1 of the season.

An eye injury prevented Ryan’s Bernardini five-year-old Peace Force from a run in last weekend’s Group 2 Dane Ripper Stakes at Doomben but she was on track to return for a shot at the $500,000 Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) at the Gold Coast on June 20.

Last seen beating home stablemate Solicit in the Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes (1350m) in Brisbane on May 23, Peace Force has now been removed from the possible list of Tattersall’s Tiara hopefuls in the fillies and mares feature to see out the end of elite level racing this Queensland Winter Racing Carnival.

A flare up of the eye infection that saw her miss the Dane Ripper will see Peace Force miss the Tiara giving Ryan just two chances of bagging a third win in the classic following his earlier success with Mon Mekki (2003) and most recently Melito (2010).

“She had a weeping eye and it appeared to be coming good over the weekend but had gone backwards again by Tuesday morning so we had to pull the pin,” Ryan told Racenet on Wednesday.

While losing Peace Force is a setback he is still confident in the duo that are Tiara-bound including his Street Cry four-year-old Solicit who won the Group 3 The Darley Crown (1300m) two back before her narrow Glenlogan Park Stakes second.

“She looks terrific,” Ryan confirmed.

“Worked really well yesterday and will gallop between races at Rosehill on Saturday with Estonian Princess.

“I’ll send Estonian Princess up for it as well if she pleases me in her work this week.”

Snitzel four-year-old Estonian Princess has won three of her 25 career starts to date, her recent form leaving plenty to be desired however with a 10th to Charlie Boy in the Group 3 BRC Sprint (1350m) on May 9 before her dead last when 11th to Strawberry Boy in the Group 3 Lord Mayor’s Cup (1600m) a fortnight later.

Solicit meanwhile is set for the breeding barn post-Tiara run, Ryan hopeful she can bow out with a Group 1 win, her closest calls of bagging an elite level title being as a three-year-old in 2013 when third to Kirramosa in the Crown Oaks and second in the 2014 Vinery Stud Stakes in Sydney last April behind Lucia Valentina.

“We sent her out to Hawkesbury and she just loves it,” he said.

“She continues to improve and I couldn’t be happier with her.”
